Offer of $20,000/year for five years with four years of summer support (~$3,000) and health insurance, first and final years fully-funded and the others aided by teaching writing seminars (on medieval topics).

This is not a bad deal.

is this the kind of information schools publish, or do you not find out these deals until acceptance?

i know i should probably just figure that out myself...^^\

My experience with this whole process has been one of fumbling in the dark; there may be a repository of information collected into one place SOMEWHERE, but if there is, I don't know where. All I know is that for the 2002-2003 school year, the average English stipend was about $12,000. Science stipends tend to be at least $7,000 higher on average, I think, with more chances for outside funding from the NSF. I can't speak for individual programs; what I can do is point you to this lj forum: Applying to Grad.

a lot of the questions are angst-ridden "aaaaack!" type questions, but you may find some pertinent first-person info nonetheless.
