I will be starting medical school next fall and my wife is considering a masters in statistics (or biostats). This idea is very recent and I would be 100% supportive of her decision just as she is of my decision to attend medical school. However, this has raised a number of new questions that we have not had to consider. Is anyone else in this situation? We're especially concerned about the financial burden. I imagine it could be easier if we're both immerse in school work than if one is home alone with nothing to do every night. I suppose I'm just looking to hear from people who are in this situation - what can we expect?
