Hello Everyone,

I need some inputs on my probable PhD in Business from a US University.

Though, I am yet to take my GMAT and hence not sure where will I land up, but still need to know the possibility of sustaining a family of 3(spouse and 6 year old child) on the stipend received(assuming no prior savings at all).

1. Is it difficult/very difficult or impossible to sustain such a life?
2. Does the total money(stipend and other grants) coming in depend on how high a GMAT score one has?





Regards

the salary of a phd student is good but wheter enough or not it depends also on the aspectation of a family. for sure is not a huge income

2. Does the total money(stipend and other grants) coming in depend on how high a GMAT score one has?

no. definitely

Stipends for PhD students in the United States is typically between $20,000 and $30,000. Students can live comfortably for that money, but not sure if it is enough for a family of three. A lot depends on what part of the US you are in. Prices in one state could be much higher or lower than other states.

It can depend on the area you go into because in my area (Information Systems), unless you get into a top school, ranges at about $18,000-$20,000 for a stipend. Big schools that might pay more than that will want a higher GMAT score. I received an offer from University of Arkansas and they let me know that my GMAT score may keep me from getting a $10k a year fellowship, which stings a bit but I won't let it deter me.

I'm going to piggyback on what jen2881 said a little bit . At a top 20 b school stipends range between 50-60k. GMAT score needed to enter is typically higher than that of an MBA program .

Btw I got the fellowship! I get $27k a year total for 4 years . I'm single so I don't really know but it can be manageable if you have 2 incomes and a family. Might be hard of just you are working. My sister in law makes $1600 a month and my brother barely brings in $1000 a month as a student and they manage.
