    On funding and taxes

    Thanks a lot for the detailed post! My country has a tax treaty with the US and I will see if this brings any benefits. It's a shame that the $4k deduction has been eliminated, I think international students will struggle more from now on.

    Conflict with campus visit days

    My campus visit invitation specifically says you can bring a spouse or partner if you'd like so (obviously you're responsible for paying their expenses), maybe yours also mention some information about this? You can visit around during the day and then celebrate in the evening for example!

    On funding and taxes

    Hi, I know little to nothing about the tax situation in the US and I'm trying to calculate how much I would pay in tax when I'll move there to do my PhD. It will be in Boston, MA. From what I understand tuition is not taxed (thankfully), but monthly stipend is. Is yearly medical insurance taxed? Are there any form of deductions for students, apart from the personal allowance? Thanks to anyone that can help me shed some light on this!

  6. Hi, There seems to be a problem in posting results. If you only input the GPA without putting anything in the GRE, the GPA is not shown (there is no "diamond" to hover over) in the final post. I'm not sure if it's random or actually related to the fact I didn't put anything in the GRE fields.

    I found out my mobile plan doesn't allow me to make international calls outside of Europe, only receive them. So unfortunately I couldn't. EDIT: I sent them an email. I don't expect an answer, but at least I made them aware that internationals that want to attend the visit days would benefit from knowing early.

    They're just having a meeting about it. Not the visit days themselves.

    That's kind of disappointing. The year I apply they take longer than usual to respond... I might actually call tomorrow. The issue for me is that in the case I am admitted (!) I would like to attend the visit days and since I'm international, the sooner I know, the better it is to organize the trip.
