  1. Hello! Will be attending CMU for Masters in Environmental Engineering this fall. Anyone accepted yet?
  2. You're welcome! All the best.
  3. Admission to Berkeley is more competitive than Stanford for EE, if that matters. They're both brilliant but you must find out which is a better fit. Take a long look at the courses and curriculum and see which one(or both) offer exactly what you want to specialize in. Same with faculty. Berkeley would be less expensive compared to Stanford and the probability of receiving funding is also higher. I've heard Berkeley is a diverse and fun atmosphere, but that doesn't mean Stanford isn't. Both great choices, see which one works better for *you*. I would vote for Berkeley. Good
  4. They're both great programs, but I would recommend Berkeley and in general Cali for anything renewables-related. Good luck!
  5. NCSU. Unless money is not a factor and you want to have a no-fuss, coursework-based masters experience surrounded by mostly internationals. If you want more research opportunities, decent-if-not-comparable job options and a more diverse environment, go to NCSU.
  6. STEM has its benefits and CMU's EST&P program is quite popular. Not really heard much about the UCSD program. Define some factors according to which you need to decide, like costs, courses, faculty, location etc. You'll be able to take courses on energy and environment as well as analytics at CMU. They're pretty flexible. I'm not aware of UCSD's curriculum. Take a good long look at the two programs and what they offer and then make your decision. I would vote for CMU, but I'm a little biased. Good luck!
  7. Either UTA or UIUC, can't go wrong with either. UTA will work out cheaper probably unless you are given a full tuition waiver at UIUC. Look at the courses offered and the curriculum and see which one is a better fit. I know people who went to both places and everyone is equally happy. Also, UTA will be warmer than UIUC. Can't comment on point 5. Good luck!
  8. Hello! Though the obvious choice seems to be Stanford, let's analyse the two. Important question: have you been admitted to the 2 year program or 1.5 year program at CMU? If the latter, I would recommend Stanford without a doubt. CMU for non-CS fields isn't as great, so I've heard from alumni. I do however know a guy who went there for mechanical, realized there isn't much scope, and took on robotics courses in the second semester, got a summer internship in Japan and did REALLY well. Since you are interested in robotics, it seems like a great option. As far as admissions go, i
  9. Hi! UCSB is pretty cool in environmental and related subjects. Yale is, of course, Yale. It all boils down to what you're looking for. Take a good, long, analytical look at the type of courses/research opportunities offered. Do they cover what you want to specialize in? Are the GIS courses at SB better and more varied than those at Yale? Does either offer more applied/project-based courses? Where do you have more freedom to choose? Since you are more inclined towards research than coursework, does UCSB offer more credits in exchange for research or does Yale? Also, is that a MA+
  10. I feel I am! I'm just worried I'm rushing things out of impatience, coz I've been waiting quite a while now. It's not so much about the VISA process, it's more of just getting this settled. It's been a long wait. But then, I guess if I've waiting this long I could probably wait another couple of weeks. Meh.
  11. Hi! I received an admit from CMU for Masters in Environmental Engineering in early Feb (with ~50% funding for the first year) and have been pondering over it since. I've been waiting for the other important decisions i.e. UIUC and Georgia Tech, but I've pretty much zeroed in on CMU coz of the courses. However, common consensus states I should take UIUC without a doubt if I get it as its awesome. As an international, an early decision will help me start the VISA process sooner. Should I wait for the supposedly better schools or go for the one that seems like the best fit? I could
  12. Hi there! Field: Environmental Engineering Status: Admits from Columbia, CMU and CU Boulder. 2 scholarships at CMU, hoping for funding at Boulder. Pending: Georgia Tech, USC, Penn State, UIUC, Virginia Tech Can anyone tell me about CUB and Boulder in general? Rankings say its great for my subject and I've heard good things about jobs/living, but I'd like to get more opinions. Thanks!
