    Melbourne or ANU?

    Hello. Sorry to resurrect a dead topic, but I figure it's better than creating a new one when this is still on the 1st page. of the index. Ayway, how about for computers? I got accepted into Master of Computing in ANU and Master of Software Systems Engineering in Melbourne Uni, and I'm having trouble as well deciding where to go. I know that ANU is generally ranked higher than Melbourne in terms of University rankings, but what about their Computer Depts? I haven't seen an equivalent of the US News Graduate CS Programs Rankings for Australia. Also, which city has a better IT industry for working after grad? I've never been to Australia, but as for the difference between the cities, Melbourne definitely seems to win there. But having lived in a big, crowded, noisy, and lively city all my life, the country-towninsh feel of Canberra does hold a certain appeal for me to try out and see how it's like. Both are most certainly better than where I am now at least. Thanks for the help.

    Coursework Masters?

    What do you guys think about a coursework masters? Are they worth anything? Are they easier to get into than research masters?

    USC Viterbi Fellowship Rejection

    Sigh. This was just too sick. So I called the USC Admissions department and they said yet again that "a decision has not yet been made on my application." So most likely they sent this to all applicants as well. Phbbt. Thanks USC for getting my hopes up and all.

    Viterbi Fellowship Rejection

    Anyway to delete this topic? I reposted this in the Waiting it out section as I figured this was more suited there. Sorry for the mistake mods.
  6. This morning I got an email from USC which says "Dear USC Viterbi Engineering Student, Thank you for your application to the Dean's Master's Fellowship for the University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering. I regret to inform you that you were not selected for the scholarship. It was a very difficult decision as the response to this program was greater than anticipated and highly selective. We had numerous outstanding applicants, yours among them. I hope that you will still be attending USC this Fall and am certain you will have a rewarding and enjoyable experience." Now, I don't mind not getting the fellowship as I really didn't think that I had a real shot at it. However, I haven't seen or heard any decision on my application from USC ever since I applied a few months ago. Does this mean I'm in? It called me a "Viterbi Engineering Student" and "hope that you will still be attending USC this fall..." Am I reading too much into it? Did they send this to all waiting or even rejected applicants?

  8. Still waiting for a decision as well, MS Computer Science in my case. I checked their history in Grad Cafe and they were still accepting and rejecting people all the way through May so we still might have a long way to wait

    Anyone hear anything from USC?

    Applied for an MS CS back in Jan, still haven't heard from them, although I really am pessimistic by now and consider myself as good as refected. Since it's a rolling admission, how much more do we usually have to wait? Is it possible that we'll be going through June and July still waiting and hearing nothing?

    NYU Computer Science ? Are they still alive?

    Seems they're informing PhD applicants already. Any MS CS applicants heard from them already? I think they're my last hope

    UCI Bren School-ICS PhD

    Was the visit day solely for PhD students or were MS CS students there as well?
