  1. it’s not true at all schools, but at stanford, PIs pay not only their students’ stipend (plus overhead), but also their tuition. so grad students are expensive beasts to the profs.

  2. and while i didn’t come to grad school for the money, i’m happy to see that i make more than if i worked at walmart. (although that’s actually really sad for those that do work at walmart!)

  3. Yes, we should all feel bad for those poor unfortunate professors…who voted to slash our TA funding by 1/4…

    Just because you don’t go to graduate school for the money doesn’t mean it’s acceptable that we’re paid less than uneducated labor in the area. It’s absurd, period, and no explaining about how hard the professors have it will change that. Hire fewer grad students and pay them a better wage – at least better than a grocery store clerk!

    Afte 5 years of college and 2 B.S. degrees, I make the same disposable income now as I did in high school…

  4. $60k/year is maybe a little deceptive for a BS in chemistry. I really doubt that’s a starting salary.
