rmaltiel Posted February 11, 2011 Share Posted February 11, 2011 I'm applying to Statistic PhDs for Fall 2011. I've been admitted to my top choice school and a safety school and still have 7 programs to hear from. While I am thrilled to be in at my top choice schools, I do wish the financial package was a little higher (TA position at ~$15,800 for the 9 month school year). At my safety school, I've received a $21,000 fellowship for the first year (so no need to work) and at least $16,300 TA and RA positions in the following years. I also haven't yet heard from my remaining schools, but some Googling has indicated higher financial packages at those schools (assuming I get into at least some of them). Has anyone ever negotiated their financial package? If so, how successful were you? Any tips or pointers? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
