    Estimating living expenses

    Hi everybody Grads and non-grads, I'm going to tell my story but I think this post might help other people too I have been admitted to my first option of university (YEY) but I am not sure if the stipend they offering me will be enough to cover my living expenses. So, first set of questions: - Do you know any websites that show reliable information about cost of living in different cities in the US? - Besides rent what else should I take into account when assessing the cost of living in each city? I have already talked to people in the Program but I've been getting some mixed information about renting there. Meanwhile, I have also been admitted to my second option which is offering me more $$$ to go there. - How important is the stipend when choosing a university do your PhD?
  3. Hi, I have gotten into the following courses for Master beginning Spetmebr 2016: 1. University of Sussex: MA in Governance and Development 2. SOAS: Development Studies 3. Sciences PO/PSIA: Masters in International Development I'm also waiting to hear from LSE - Msc in Development Management/ Development Studies. As an international student coming from India, which would be the best university for me? Major factors include: 1.College Ranking/ Reputation 2. Funding/scholarships available available: As of now I have no scholarship offers from any university 3. Cost of Living / total cost in one year 4. Career opportunities/ Placements directly out of university (esp. for internatioanl students) Any suggestions would be of great help. Thanks!
  4. I've been accepted to the MA National Security & Foreign policy program at American University and the MA International Security program at the Josef Korbel School. I've been trying to choose between the two and it has proven to be a very difficult process. I will be relying on loans to pay tuition, so money is serious concern. I want a program that is geared toward policy development and encourages the 'think tank' approach. Help!
  5. Hi there, friends! I'm currently juggling between offers and can't help but begin to feel worried about stipend amounts between schools. They are incredibly low, even in California schools where the cost of living is quite high. A few examples can be found in any UC school, where a stipend of about $17,000 or $18,000 per nine months is expected to be enough. Of course, summer work is almost guaranteed...but is this possible? I'm the most frugal person I know and spend money only on necessities, but even so, I'm worried about this. I currently live on the east coast, so moving expenses would have to be taken into account. Does anyone have any suggestions or first-hand experience with these dilemmas?
