    Tax Rate on PhD stipend

    I was basically trying to figure out the after-tax stipend I would receive. I have been offered a 34000$ stipend from a California school.

    MIT Admission Results

    There is simply no link that I can find so far. It is weird that I get the message after logging in.

    There is a message in my account that reads' Your application is considered complete! To check your admission result, you can log into your online account now. The results will be posted rather than mailed.' However, I dont know where to check. Anyone with an idea?

    Astrophysics: Feasibility of schools selected

    Thank you for this detailed response. It helped me frame my thoughts much better. I had looked at a few schools you suggested but not all of them. I shall study them further. Thank you again.
