Gowns, Gowns, Gowns

To buy or not to buy? That is the question.

Lest anyone is unsure, I have in mind the choice of either suffering the slings and arrows of outrageous pricing for the purchase of Ph.D. regalia ($739), or taking arms against a sea of financial troubles by renting instead ($133).

    Doesn't your department pay for the rental if you're on official business? That's lame if they don't.

    Do you have to go every year? If so, buy it. If it's optional, don't buy it, because I suspect you won't be doing it more than once or twice in your life.

    I'm not sure my graduating counts as "official business," right?

    Ah, it's for your *own* commencement... no, probably not. My dept rents the regalia for us if we attend our university's commencement.

    Either way, it can come out of the research fund.
