Linguistics Applicants for Fall 2021 in Linguistics Forum Posted April 10 Hi guys! As you know, I was accepted to the University of Illinois and the University of Alabama. I already accepted Illinois’s offer, but I can change my decision until April 15th. If you guys had to choose between these two outstanding universities, which one would you choose? Illinois: Stipend: USD 12,738 Health insurance: partial Proof of funding: USD 24,000 (for myself + dependents) Sponsor: a friend of mine, an American citizen. - - - Alabama Stipend: USD 14,364 Health insurance: full coverage Proof of funding: USD 16,036 (because I have 3 dependents - if it were only me, I would need to show proof of funding of USD 1,036) Loomis Scholarship funding (book aid): USD 800 Sponsor: I wouldn’t need a sponsor at the UA. I can use my own funds. I’m curious to know which one you guys would choose.
