#Cecilia on Jun 26, 2015 :
Hi everyone... I would really thank you if you could help me. I have won a small scholarship that would leave me with 800 per month to live (housing, food, etc.), after paying for tuition and fees of a graduate program at UMKC. Is that enough?? I won't be able to work (I just have a J1 visa for students, and I do not have any savings (at least not in dollars, and not significant at all!).

My decision depends crucially on the cost of living... so I would like your honest opinion on this.

Thank you for your help!!!

#dalton, your an idiot! First of all, WHICH... Second, check your math. Work weeks in Kansas City are 40 hours. I'd line up how to do the math, but I figure you'll still get it wrong. This would indicate that the *average* salary is $31,426.68... want to guess what that calculates to per hour? I'll give you a hint - it's not $77! In fact, you were all over it with your hypothesis at the end.
#dalton on Mar 26, 2015 :
this says the aver" Average Monthly Disposable Salary (After Tax) 2,618.89 $" witch would put the average hourly wage at 77$ per hour.... should be closer to 15-20$ an hour at best.
