So you make close to $10K a month after tax as an analyst right out of college?


What company?


$925 in Boston, ~11% of my take home (it’s not too terrible of a place and it’s a BIG upgrade from living in college dorms last year; also, gotta pay my loans somehow)



$2200 in NYC, about 47% of base salary ($100k)


$2050 for a studio in dc, like 40% take home


$3600 in total split between two roommates. Think it’s around 25% of my take home.

$3600 total. $1800 per person.


$1400 in NYC, 25% of my take home

(Caveat that I live with 3 others)

1900 DC, (live alone) ~25% of take home

$1600 solo studio, ~24% take home

$725 in Arlington. 10 minutes outside DC. 10.5% of gross. I've got 5 roommates and a 4,000 sq. ft. house.

Yeah, 5. We all get along really, really well, so it's worked out. I do look forward to getting my own place soon enough, but am in no rush. Somehow we actually have a very clean home which I've never experienced before with roommates.

$2400 in NYC. I split with SO. 17% of gross.

5600 in DC, 20% of income

Killing it! BCG1... don’t forget about us when you’re at the top 😉

$3k/mo in DC, split it 60/40 with partner. My share about 10% gross. When I lived alone, I paid the same for a studio

$1300 - 2 br - Dallas ~11%

DC - 2 bedroom - 3300/mo total or 1650 for my half. I make 80K.

Yeah you're right. It cuts after two lines instead of expanding.
