I'm currently a senior in highschool who received admittance to NYU where i would take Economics in the College of Arts and Sciences. I am a URM from south New York, and you might of been able to guess, will have some serious trouble affording NYU. You probably already know that NYU is notorious for terrible financial aid.
I'm looking get into and Equity Research. Hopefully after some experience I can make the jump to the sell side.
Obviously I'm going to have to take out loans. My parents can pay a little but not much. I didn't want to pass more than 50k because it would be some where around 80k cash I'm paying after( correct me if I'm wrong). Now I'm thinking maybe I should take out around 70-80. I'm just afraid that if I take that out, and I get into Equity Reaserch that I'll be paying off this money for a long time. I don't want to have this on me for forever (even thoughpay is pretty nice). What do you guys think? Is 80k worth it/too much? All advice is much appreciated.
