I'm in at the UBC as well - 10.4k TA position. By my calculations, that's about $5.8k after tuition and fees.
Asked me for a reply by March 24th! Hasty.
Hard to turn down $24k in Rochester to live in much-pricier Vancouver on $6k and having to work for it.
Then again, taking the MA lets me have another crack at top-ten. Decisions, decisions.
EDIT: Sent the graduate coordinator an email asking if the department could do a little better.

That's exactly what I'm thinking. Except it's a first crack in my case Though I really doubt I'll be turning down WUSTL..Then again, taking the MA lets me have another crack at top-ten.
"Since it befalls, that in most instances
Current opinion leans to false: and then
Affection bends the judgment to her ply."
Similarly, I'll be hard-pressed to say no to Rochester.
Oh, and cost-of-living in Vancouver is not cheap. Used to live there. Probably New Haven expensive.
It really grinds me that they mistakenly sent me the official offer from the grad department 3 times (2:05pm EST, 2:06pm EST, 5:40pmEST) and I'm yet to receive an e-mail from the econ department about funding. It seems like UBC T.Aships pretty much everyone, so I should at least be getting that. They better let me know pretty soon or they may lose me to LSE.
(therefore, 15.4K UBC Econ > -45K LSE F&E IMHO)
After all, a buddy of mine just got accepted, full funded to princeton with a Queen's MA.
I just got acceptance letter at late in the day also For funding:
For information regarding financial assistance including the
International Partial Tuition Fee Award (for Master's students), and PhD Tuition

I think I got partial tuition waive, but don't know about TAship
Anyway, does UBC has flyout date?
