I have a question..not long to go now and in my pre-arrival organisation I was getting all my finances in order (ugh), checked my Yale admit letter for my exact stipend amount - and realised they are 'pleased to offer a minimum level of support of $26,000' per year. I haven't received any other correspondence with an exact figure as far as I can see - does anyone know if I should take this amount as very close to the mark or maybe I'm going to get a a very happy surprise (I know, I can dream though).

I feel like this is something I should have received confirmation of! Is everyone else's package as vague?

I'm guessing they put that in just in case you end up receiving a special fellowship or outside funding or something like that. You'd probably know if that was the case, though, so the chances of a happy surprise might be kind of slim :)
