Your admissions offers will include a stipend amount. You find out about attrition and failure rates when you visit the places that admitted you and talk to current students there.
The year that I applied, UCSD had incredibly low stipends. IIRC, it was $12.5k/yr, which is depressingly low considering the cost-of-living in San Diego. According to one poster (I believe on these forums), they sent out applications for food stamps along with admit letters. Even amongst the UC's it was quite low (UCI offered me $15.5k/yr, IIRC).
IIRC, Duke was in the high teens the I applied. I didn't apply to any of those other schools.
