Do I ask for them to send me something that says that, or do I just let it go since it seems like the funding situation is good (and the grad students I talked to at the interview day mentioned no problems with the funding)?
I do not believe this is possible. Every school works differently but few schools can guarantee
TAships anymore. It sounds like they are confident nothing will change and you will be funded the whole time but there are no guarantees.
You did your best. If none of the students have been left out to dry than its doubtful that will change.
