i'll let you know when i reach age 23 but by 18 i had saved around $44k which i used to pay for tuition because my parents weren't supporting me anymore since i told them i wasn't going to become a doctor (trying to become a lawyer)[/quote]
i am 23 and didn't go to school, so i have no debt. i work full time in manufacturing and rent an apartment for $600/mo.
i have something like ~18k in the bank, 11k in a Roth IRA, and 2k+ in my 401k through my employer, but my employer matches some and it isn't fully vested yet. i have 2 cheap cars that aren't worth much, probably under 3k combined realistically, unfortunately.[/quote]
Hey, i've been looking into putting some money into an IRA as well. What website / holder do you use? Any insight would be appreciated!

I used TD Ameritrade. I don't know exactly why I decided to go with that one, but my smart friend helped me choose. They charge $50 every time you make an investment in the Roth/IRA. I just looked at it today (friend told me to not look and get scared and withdraw my money) and I lost money since March.
I'm 18 and I have about $1700 in my checking account and about $300 cash. No job yet cause I gotta figure out work study and whether I can do this tutoring job instead.
I'll have ~$36k in loan debt after college but 10 years to pay it off.
