bloometal Posted April 16, 2010 Share Posted April 16, 2010 So I got an admit at NCSU for PHD in Mathematics finally. In fact, it was the only school I got an admit from. Unfortunately, (Yep you guessed it!) I did not land myself any sort of funding. They seemingly decide upon Teaching Assistantships once in a year, and that's that! Or would they have positions that are expendable during the year too? So, my only option on getting my tuition paid is getting myself an RA. Do you think that is possible now that the decision for 'no funding' is already made? How do I go about asking the Profs? Should I be straigh-forward at first go or do I tell them 'I'm just interested in learning more' before I get there and then once I get there, I ask them about RA? And also, I heard they usually don't give funding for international students, so do my chances increase if I should fly to the US and meet profs a month earlier? I really need at least the tuition waiver! Thanks a ton for any sorta advice! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
