meowmix27 Posted May 1, 2014 Share Posted May 1, 2014 Hi all, I got into Rutgers PhD Food Science program for Fall 2014- with no funding. From my conversations with Rutgers alum and faculty, it seems like they are hesitant to give out funding to first-semester students as they like to assess their performance. Usually (considering you're a stellar student) students have more access to funding opportunities after their first semester. My dilemma is should I accept and defer to Spring 2015/ Fall 2015 and in the meantime apply to other institutions (I am considering Cornell, UMass, UCLA) and then weigh out my options? Due to certain constraints I was only able to apply to Rutgers for Fall and that too after their financial aid deadline. I can afford to support myself for one semester but not sure if Rutgers Food Science program is worth it... Any advice welcomed and appreciated Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
