In total in b school I managed 30-odd countries, plus three or four Vegas and ski trips. I had sponsorship, which made things a lot easier, but I'd say I was maybe 75th percentile in spend... plenty of folks took out a bunch of extra debt for 'extracurricular activities'

I went through around 60k a year on all non education expenses (20 rent, 20 travel, 10 basic necessities, 10 going out)

So you blew $200 a weekend going out...(assuming you went out literally every weekend)

School in the Midwest - spent ~45 over two years on rent, social, travel, etc.

No question I could have cut back on travel and going out budgets, but I could and I did... and I was far from the most lavish spender.

Were you guys travelers before bschool? I can't even imagine spending that kind of $.

Pre business school my total expenses were $25k/year... b school was a big ramp up

What is all this traveling everyone talks about in bschool?

I made it to 17 countries during breaks and weekends with friends, including a class in South America. ...some ppl traveled more

Jesus why so much travel? I feel like I could use a break from travel but I don't want to be the loner or party pooper at b school when I go

How is it possible to spend that much? Did you have a lot of money saved fron working, used loans, parents money, had internships/jobs? I don't even think I take away 60k after taxes so can't begin to imagine spending that much money!

I spent 40k in two years.
