how much money did you receive for graduate funding

are you in math or physics/masters or phd

are you in canada or the united states or somewhere else

and what do you think is average, below average, above average for a domestic masters student per year?

how do they make the decision - is it based on how well they think youll do

Most terminal masters programs don't come with funding, but PhD programs will (and if you enter a PhD program with a bachelors, you'd be paid to work on the masters as well). My friends and I made between 16k and 25k a year in physics and math PhD programs. Teaching assistants tend to make less, research assistants make more, but you have to convince a professor to take you on for that.

~Death~, grad school in what country? Systems in Britain, Canada, and the US (and in other countries) are quite different.

Here in Canada, terminal program masters programs are often fiunded, and it is very common to get a masters before getting a Ph.D.
