What class? Our actual class managed to get a pretty crappy non tenured teacher fired.

It's for a History class. The professor was great but the TA is unorganized, rude, and condescending. She just walked over to me to ***** at me for sitting in the back. I've been in the same seat every class, and I'm not the only one in the back either. Not that it matters, because the room is super small anyway. Plus I didn't see "get close enough to see the hair on your TA's upper lip" in the course requirements.

lol @ history TA. They are pissed because they are probably getting paid like 800/month, if that, while they are 24 and going to grad school for history.

I'm pretty sure one of the other TAs for the same class has a speech impediment so bad that you can't understand 90% of what she says. I mean I'm all for equal opportunities for things, but when you have a job that affects other people's grades when they're paying thousands of dollars to take the course, and you can't do a good job of it, I'm not sure why you're there.

That said, I could never be a teacher or TA so more power to them

Why is a T/A teaching a history class?

I'm not sure that history even gets paid here.

The only thing a history degree is good for is an inflated gpa so your law school app looks better. I was a history major my first semester. Then I realized I didn't know if I really wanted to be a lawyer and if I changed my mind is be stuck with a history degree.

Granted I'd probably still have the same job I do now because I've gotten them more from having connections than anything.

This is why I hated economics. There was one American prof in the entire department. The rest spoke broken English.

$17,000 for two RA years and $10,500 for the rest doing TA, you weren't far off. I wonder how crowded it is, I know biology around here has ~15 positions for ~60 candidates.

Did you make it beyond lower undergraduate? Our math department is really hit or miss with the TA's for calc 1-3 but once you get out of your sophomore year things get drastically better.

Bio is 1000x better because we have research grants. Most people get research assistantships as opposed to teaching assistantships. In OU it was 1650/month. In NJ/PA it's more like 28-32K/ year, but you're expected to work your *** off in the lab.

That's roughly my point, great money for a couple of people.

The wife you married to keep her from being deported? I'm surprised she has anything to say other than pickles or no pickles?

In bio it depends on the program/Principal Investigator. I've been at Drexel, OU, Penn State Hershey, and Princeton. Grad students are taken care of if they do their work.

Admittance is very competitive for all programs probably 8-10/year. Department supports you while you rotate, then your professor supports you when you join your lab. At OU, you had to be accepted + had to be taken under a PI, or had to take the few T/A positions. Most bio professors get a **** ton of money for grants. I believe my last PI had a 450K grant for 4 years, others have millions for 5+ years.
