Another vote for K&L, they have a great website with realtime inventory and they do free will-call and transfers between their locations.

Often there are good fellowships and string-free funding for the first year or two in a lot of programs. I've seen stipends as high as 30k/9 months.

This is in computer science.
Another vote for this brand, love the service and the high quality.

I'm near completion of a doctorate in the sciences and my friends in non-technical programs really have struggled without funding. In almost any field the academic job market is abysmal, even coming from top schools. Also, beware of budget issues when selecting a state school.

I saw them most recently last October in Big Sur (Henry Miller Library ) and they seemed a lot tighter live vs. what I remember from the Neon Bible tour and much more so vs. the Funeral days. I'm happy for them with the Grammy, they really are nice people. At HML the band mingled with the (very small) crowd for an hour both before and after the show, Win was...
I also like the Max Bill clocks, but I think I prefer the one with numbers printed
