  1. UIUC is a great school, but not as reputable as Stanford. Also the weather and quality of life at UIUC is much worse. Go with Stanford and try to get funding afterwards
  2. When you say "intern", do you mean a summer internship at a company or being a research assistant? Honestly, CMU and UCSD are both on par for EE. I would assume that CMU SV has way less class options and cost more.
  3. congrats! why not apply to Caltech, Berkeley, or CMU SV if u applied to Stanford? Which one you going?
  4. why do you want research opportunities? isn't a ms just classes?
  5. 2 years on, I have to say that I am glad it didn't work out :).
  6. Sounds like the only thing going for VT is a specific advisor. Everything else is heavily in favor of Stanford. Stanford is the obvious choice and will open many doors.
  7. I would pick UIUC because they have strong computer science and engineering. Plus it is much cheaper.
  8. If both programs are the same cost, i would cost CMU because it has a much better ECE Program. It doesn't really matter that it starts in Spring
  9. Dont come to Cambridge, it is super cold and drivers are terrible. Stick with West Coast!
  10. Both are equal in terms of helping you reach your potential. Go with Stanford for the better weather and options to pivot to Tech if you realize that academia is not for you.
  11. CMU offers so many different and specialized masters programs... its kind of overkill
  12. Name brand of grad school is most important if you went to a weak undergrad institution.
