First of all, thank you very much for such a useful blog ! All your posts are really helpful for MS aspirants like us … I have applied for fall 13 , results awaited. I just want to know apprx. what is the monthly expenditure for a student.
I know it may vary for different universities but, still, I would like to know in general how much it is.
Apart from that, I also wish to know how much of the monthly expenditure can be earned through on campus job? And how do students manage if their monthly expenditure is greater than their earning ?
And one more small doubt, when a student succeeds in getting on campus job, will he/she be considered for TA/RA/GA ? Or usually only one of these two is allowed? are both the things manageable along with the studies ?
I know I have asked so many questions….. but answers to them will really help me in preparing my prioritized list of universities as finances is a crucial factor in my case !
Please clarify .
