    PhD vs. Microsoft applied scientist

    @theduckster Applied scientist is actually different from research scientist. Research scientists work at MSR and essentially function the way they would in academia (i.e. publishing papers). Applied scientist is essentially data science - the job is to improve Bing/ Windows autocomplete. It is very rare for an undergraduate to get a full time position at MSR as far as I know.
  9. Hi all, I've been holding onto an offer from Microsoft as an applied scientist (in Bing Natural Language Understanding). I also applied to PhD programs, and am waiting to hear back. As I'm looking at the alumni profile page of some of these schools, it seems like a large number of people don't really land top tier/ high paying industry positions even after completing their PhD. I feel like doing a PhD will be fun, but in case I don't make it in academia, do you think it would hurt me for applying to industry positions? What are your thoughts on weighing industry positions vs PhD in general?

    Whether to Report Fall Grades

    Also not sure whether to report. I did it for Wisconsin because they asked for it, but none of the others.

    Did anyone hear from Duke? In past years they sent out interviews around this time.
