So I got an admit at NCSU for PHD math finally. In fact, it was the only school I got an admit from. Unfortunately, (Yep you guessed it!) I did not land myself any sort of funding. They seemingly decide upon Teaching Assistantships once in a year, and that's that! So, my only option on getting my tuition paid is getting myself an RA. Do you think that is possible now that the decision for no funding is already made? How do I go about asking the Profs? Should I be open about it or do I tell them I'm just interested in learning more before I get there and then once I get there, I ask them about RA? Thanks a ton for any sorta advice!
