lilspike333 Posted November 2, 2009 Share Posted November 2, 2009 I'm applying to graduate school for fall 2010 and I'm not sure whether to apply to MS or PhD programs. I'm a mechanical engineering major and I'm pretty sure I don't want to get a PhD, but I also can't really afford to pay for school all on my own. I've been told by several people that I should apply to PhD programs and then drop out after getting my masters in order to increase my chances of receiving funding. Is it okay to do such a thing? Are there usually stipulations for receiving funding in a PhD program or is it okay to drop out after getting a masters? Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
