I do and I've found the "total cost to attend" figures to be a worst case scenario. Prior to enrolling, my projected payback was around 5 years. Now with real numbers, it will be about 1 year. I had overestimated the costs, underestimated my summer compensation and exit salary and not considered any tuition reimbursement from my future employer. My only guess is Wharton has a higher percentage of students who had high paying jobs prior to b-school, saved little, and racked up debt in order to continue that lifestyle into b-school.
I did something similar and basically did a sensitivity analysis based on amount of expenses over 2 years, signing bonus for full time job, salary, and potential employer payback. I had a projection closer to 3.5-4 on average. I didn't include summer intern money though.
ETA: The value of an MBA isn't the education itself or the degree like it is in undergrad. It's the connections, network, and job opportunities that are given to pipeline top 20 schools that make the MBA valuable. So if you're considering going to get an MBA, do your research on the important statistics for your school i.e. % of students with job 90 days after graduation, % summer internships, Avg salary, avg bonus, etc. Getting an MBA to have it on your resume is throwing money down the toilet IMO
