You're covered under the university's health plan though, right? Shouldn't make a bit difference to you. Maybe your graduate adviser can slip you an envelope with $50 and some coupons for free tacos from the Taco Bell in the student union to make up for those 11 hours every week.
nope lol!!! they don't give GTAs health insurance, I have to buy it myself. because the state of va sucks fucking dick. I"m a 'part time' employee.
