Well to start, I am graduating next spring and I plan on attending graduate school immediately after for some concentration in atmospheric physics. I am slightly unknowing of how the whole 'money' situation works in graduate school. For example you get accepted into a grad program as a PhD student and they pay for your tuition and then give you X amount for like a teaching assistant thing right (best case scenario). Will they accept you and not offer pay for like a teaching spot? I also know they might not even fund your tuition. The big question is do you get these benefits as a Masters student?
