As I just submitted my first application to U British Columbia, I realized how costly this whole grad school application thingy is! It costs me almost $140 just to submit the application PLUS $25 to send my GRE score. Not to mention the money require to send the transcript. Oh god... Anyway, to make it short, due to my financial shortage, I am reconsidering my list so that I can opt out the schools that I am either not going to even if I get accepted or the one that is unlikely to offer much funding ( being an international student, money is tremendously burdensome for me ). My question is that if anyone knows much about the funding opportunity of UPenn? As I did a quick research, it seems like they are not that generous. Because I feel that the program is somehow not too suited to me, I am considering taking it out of my list if they don't offer large funding that often. But I'm still hesitant. The Ivy League name just.. makes it too hard to let it go. I'd appreciate any response. Thank you.
