After lots of discussion, my wife and I came to the decision that once she's done with her fellowship in NYC we'll be moving elsewhere. I was born in Queens and I loved the time I spent in Manhattan, but raising a family here is just too hard. With the hundreds of thousands of dollars we'll be saving by buying elsewhere, we can afford to parachute our unborn kids in to the city for cultural immersion.

At least one school is wrong - UMass Amherst, while a state school, is not <$2k a year. According to their own site, it's ~$23k for in-state students, and still $13k even if we're just talking tuition.

Doesn't everyone use their phone as an alarm clock?
Hundreds of millions of dollars, but still hasn't learned the proverb, "Never hold a woman or a wine glass by the neck."

@Natasha Vargas-Cooper Got it. May I be so bold as to suggest the income-based repayment plan for his loans, coupled with the 10-year loan forgiveness program for doctors?
