So I have pretty much set my mind on living in HGS, BUT then I got the email from graduate housing about the noisy ongoing construction project next to HGS. Anyone else concerned about this? Can anyone who happens to be around HGS currently tell us how noisy it is really?

Hi guys! I'll be pursuing an MA in Stats this year. Very excited as I could not have dreamt of a better school to be at!

irockhard, I'm also going to be at HGS. I can pretty much sleep through anything and I figured if the construction is bothering me when I need to study, I can just head to a library. I think you made the right choice Posted Image. Anyone else joining us?

Posted Image Well, in fact, I think HGS is a very good place, my first choice was a room in HGS, but I did not get it, so I am going to 254 p street.

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 :)
