I made 70k in consulting out of college and had $1500 in rent. You will be fine with 80k and it won’t be for long either. Congrats!

It’s good. I started at 85k in NYC and I felt fine and able to so most things. Same with my start group.

I started 75k and split a 3bdr for 1400 each and had a lot of savings. You’ll be making a lot more than most of your neighbors did at your age so you’ll be fine

Moving to NYC next month - 82 base. Just signed a 7000 lease with 3 other lads (1750/person) in Murray hill. Rent is still relatively low but climbing very fast - I would lock a place down sooner rather than later if you’re moving this summer
