Just to act as a counter weight to a thread full of good advice...
It's not the greatest financial decision in the world, but it's far from the disaster that people are making it out to be. "what if you get fired in 2 months". Then sell the car. People act as if he did go through with this and something went wrong he's going to be in some sort of perplexing dilemma that's unsolvable without selling off a limb.
Any financial guru will tell you that you should instantly, I mean fucking instantaneously leverage your ass to the HILT straight out of school. Bury yourself in debt. You'll know that you're deep enough when you calculate your monthly expenses and something as minor as a higher wind resistance on any given day would increase your gas expenses just enough so that the entire house comes falling down and you go chapter 7. That's the edge you're lookin' for, and you wanna ride that as long as possible.
