12/2    Grad school is cool. I play games and watch a lot of TV and meet a
        lot of people and I'm really enjoying it. But before you go there you
        gotta ask yourself whether you want to make financial sacrifices.
        For example, can you live on Burger King/speghetti all over again?
        Do you want to live in Berkeley-like apartments again? Can you live
        without traveling (funny rule of thumb, work=lots of money/no time
        to travel, school=lots of time to travel/no money). Can you spouse/
        gf/family live without your support? It's a lot of sacrafice. I'm
        still trying to figure out whether it's worth it or not. In the
        mean time, I've decided to take a huge loan. Heck the interest rate
        is low and I don't have to pay as long as I'm a student.  -ucla stude
        \_ With English like that, how the heck did you make the cut into
           graduate school?
        \_ different programs are different.  i'm required to travel quite a
           bit as a grad student, and have been able to pay off about
           half of my undergrad debt on my grad student stipend.  And I
           don't live on junk food.  I also work(in the lab) 60-80 hrs/wk.
