Wait, but isn’t it crazy expensive to get a PhD? And if you had to work a job to fund it, wouldn’t you basically have no life besides school and work?
It is only crazy expensive if you don’t have a funded position. To be honest here in europe you can always find a funded position. For example I’m doing a PhD and don’t pay any fees and get a monthly stipend as if I had a job. I’ve heard that in the US there might be a different situation, idk. I don’t think that working while doing a phd is ever a realistic option.
