[SOLVED] PhD in Biology Okay, well I'm new to the forum and I'm a little confused about majoring in bio. My situation is that my family is kind of middle-classed, we do well I guess, have a house, my father only works, blah blah.. Now I wanna help my Dad with our expenses, but my main interests are Biology, Astronomy, Space Program and I one day want to become a Professor or work for NASA. Now as a major in biology/astronomy, I'd need a PhD to do what I wanna do.. the thing is and I relee hate thinking about it is how money will affect everything. What do PhD students do for money inbetween all that schooling? You're like 25 or so getting your PhD, I'm sure your parents want you to work for school cuz your PhD ain't going any faster. What can I possibly do in between? I wanna help my family cut down expenses and all, but also do what I want in life and not just think about money. So what do PhD students especially in Biology or even any subject do in between for money? Thanks.
