I agree with this. I can't think of anyplace where half the stipend is ample money to live off without a part-time job on the side.
It's possible that once you have an advisor, you could get more funding, depending on his/her own funds. I know that a student can be supported by an advisor's grants. If it's an institution in the US, I would search the NSF awards and see who has what at this school. Some places have very large grants - others, not so much.
