How much money did you need for living expenses and trips in business school? (Excluding tuition) Starting to think about going!

I’m going in the fall so I don’t have actuals, but researched pretty heavy and asked a few folks. Chicago market. Rent -1500/mo Supplies - 5000 (including laptop, etc) Trips - 10000 (including additional pre start trip Living expenses - 1500/mo Moving - 2000


That’s 1 years worth


You can always go the bottom up approach: de potential spending with rent, transportation, tickets and hotels. Add an error margin and an estimation for your consumption (meals, phone, utilities)

Not sure how to estimate without knowing how many trips people go on, what kind of social events are common (knowing they’re different across schools), etc. Looking for ballparks based on people’s actual experiences!

How great is it to go back to college campus for the start of Fall interviews... this time as an interviewer! 😀 This is going to be fun.


Guesses to how long until this platform gets popular?
