Can anyone tell me what the Finanacial Aid Package (TA or RA) is at UT-Austin, Indiana, Boston, Vanderbilt, or Pitt? If in Sociology the sociology programs thats great just trying to get an Idea for what they are so I can compare cost of living.

According to Petersons.com...

Vandy: Info not provided

IU-Bloomington: Average internal fellowship - $17500 + tuition, average RA - $15600 + tuition, average TA - $13400 + tuition. Numbers of each in 2009-2010 were 13, 5, 36, respectively. 74 students out of 91 full-time received any departmental finaid.

Boston University (I wasn't sure whether you meant this, Boston College, or UMass-Boston): Average internal fellowship - $18900 + tuition, average RA - $18400 + tuition, average TA - $18400 + tuition. Numbers of each in 2009-2010 were 1, 1, 4, respectively. 9 students out of 20 full-time received any departmental finaid.

UT-Austin: Average internal fellowship - $19000 (not sure if it includes tuition), average RA - $17000 + tuition, average TA - $17000 + tuition. Numbers of each in 2007-2008 were 15, 35, 50, respectively. 110 students out of 145 full-time received any departmental finaid. Their data is all from 2007-2008, two years older than the other schools', so the numbers are more likely to have changed.

All of this info is for the respective schools' sociology graduate programs (MA + PhD - Peterson's doesn't separate them).
