Froomkin, Joseph – 1983
The budgets of graduate and professional students were estimated, and the way that students met these expenses were analyzed. The average expenses of a student in graduate school in 1980-1981 were estimated to be $8,990, while the estimate for professional students was $10,550. It was estimated that roughly 10 percent of the amount spent by…
