What are my chances of getting financial aid?

The offers of financial aid depend on several factors including GRE/TOEFL scores, personal/phone interviews, previous research/industrial/teaching experience, area of concentration, department needs and the financial factors. Competition for teaching and research assistantships is always very keen and admitted students are always encouraged to find other sources of support including personal/family funds. Several students start their graduate education based on personal funds and later find some form of financial support including assistantships and on-campus employment though clearly, it can not be guaranteed.
