LTee Posted April 19, 2010 Share Posted April 19, 2010 I will not be receiving funding for my masters program, and Im getting kinda nervous about the amount of loans I will accrue. I will be attending a small private school that offers very little outside of loans and a few competitive scholarships. The three year program will cost me roughly $45,000, not including living expenses. Im not going into a research field or attending a large university where I can be a TA or work in a lab, and frankly Im excited and proud that I even got into some of the schools that I applied to (I had a low GPA and GRE scores.) Anyways, if Im not offered anything outside of loans this year, is there a possibility that as I get to know the school and professors that maybe I can get some sort of funding for my second year? I sometimes think Im crazy for considering taking out loans for 2-3 years, but then again if it's a field that Im passionate about and can make decent money eventually it's all worth it right? Im hoping a part time job will be feasible also. Any insight folks? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
