UCSD financial suppport offers

Post by physgeek » Thu Mar 08, 2007 5:13 pm

To those who have been accpeted at UCSD, have you received the financial offer yet? I saw an entry in applycorner of someone who was accepted with a TA offer, but I haven't gotten anything about that.

I haven't heard anything yet either but the secretary said this past sunday that they'd be sending them out "next week". So whether she meant next week or next work week, is a little ambiguous. I'm anxious to hear though.

Are you guys going to the open house? I'll be there.

Fellas (and ladies),

When you do hear, please post the details (benefits, TA/RA, stipend, etc) up here. I'm currently on the wait list, in the "we'll let you know by April 15th" sort of way. So knowing these details ahead of time would be VERY helpful in me being able to make a quick decision.

Thanks a lot.

I just got an e-mail from UCSD saying that they mailed out the financial aid offers this afternoon. Perfect timing since I'm leaving for spring break tomorrow, and unless that envelope can travel from San Diego to Ithaca before 5 o'clock tomorrow, I'm not gonna see it for a while. :?

I got the award letter. TA offer which is 15.6k for 9 months. Living on that in La Jolla would be very close to straight poverty, I think.

I went to the open house and I really liked it. The campus was very nice and the professors (at least those that I talked to) seemed very friendly and approachable. I'm pretty sure I'll be accepting their offer.
