I'm just about ready to send in my application to FSI, but the issue of financing still leaves me with questions. I know there are many FSI grads and and students here, so I'd like to ask: Are you able to make your loan payments, as an FSI instructor? I'm going to have to borrow 60K to go, and have some concern about the next couple of years while I build time as an instructor. I don't have any other debt or a family to support, and don't plan to live in extravagance. But I would like to know if my pay as an instructor can pay my loan payment, a rented room in an apartment, and food. How much does the average instructor make a month? How is everyone else doing this?
