If I could read at that page rate, law school would be so much easier! If you weren't already on a partner-track I'd tell you to reconsider your career!

Only you would calculate those numbers...haha! Sounds like a great year! I'm glad we realized over the break that there is someone who might have more debt than me. ;)
