So, I’m reaching out to ask questions about how you ladies here basically started your life after college? I’ll be graduating next year, but I’m kind of stressed out with my debt. I’ve been in school since 18, went straight from college to PA school, and living like a nomad since I have to go to different cities for my clinical year. On top of that, I had to re-locate across the country so moving back to the west coast will be a pain and expensive again. I’ll be graduating with $80k+ in debt and literally no savings, but my starting salary will be at least 6 figures which is reassuring. The issue is that I’ll have to wait at least 3-5 months to start a job after graduation since it takes a while for licensing and credentialing to get through. I’ll admit, I’ve been relying on my parents for their support so I don’t even know where to start.
I plan on living on my own when I move back to my home state in a HCOL area. How did you guys manage to get an apartment when you were starting out after school? My plan is to move in with my parents and do door dash or work a temporary level-entry job until I start my career. Moving in with them is a last resort however.
Looking for advice, especially from those who were in similar situations. Thank you!
