  3. Hi, I'm debating whether I should go into CMU-Pitt CompBio PhD program or UofToronto CS for Masters, with conditional offer for PhD after completion of Masters. In short, I'm currently in UofT, working with my possibly future advisor if I were to stay. I really like my lab and my advisor, but I do feel that the UofT CS courses are not as instructive/organized/structured as CMU-Pitt ones, esp in ML and computational genomics. In point-form: UofToronto CS: pros: - like the lab/research advisor a lot - current grad students in the lab are very helpful and friendly -
  4. So, I was promised acceptance to two schools so far, school A and school B in completely different parts of the country. (respectively west and east coast) I am interested in the research they both make, but the CS department is smaller in school B, much newer and maybe not as great as in school A. While, my advisor there seems really great and all the previously graduated students went to great places and seem to be doing great. It seems they have a lot of funding and a lot of publications as well. Furthermore I really liked my interview with this school and got the impression that my ad
  5. Hi! I recently took the GRE and felt satisfied with my scores at first. I scored 165V/170Q which pleased me greatly. However, the writing score came back as a 4.0. I am a native English speaker, and I write well when I have time to revise my work. Should I retake the GRE to try and improve that score? Or do CS admissions committees not care? I will likely apply to a PhD program in Fall 2018 or 2019, so I have time to study if a retake would improve my admissions prospects.
  6. Waiting on UBC CS Decisions. Gonna pass out with anxiety now. Have been waiting sleeplessly for last 3 weeks. GradCafe shows many admits already. Last year there were all rejects from March. Last admit was mid Feb. If you are one of them, please share your profile so that I can come back to the ground! Foolish hope is eating me out. UBC applicants, let's talk how you are feeling now? Have you received an admit or an interview or a reject atleast? What other plans have you got. Applied to UofT? Let's discuss
  7. Anyone heard from computer science department yet either regarding admit or esop. Has anyone received an email for interview for esop in Computer science
  8. Hi all, I am an international student at Purdue majoring in computer engineering and I am now currently a freshman. I now have a GPA of 4, which I know is not impressive since I am a freshman, but I am getting ahead of the usual schedule, so there should be more time for me to do some research stuff in sophomore, junior, and senior years than usual students. So I am doing research this summer in Beijing, China, with a well-known Chinese professor whose h-index is more than 67 (lowered because he has two accounts in Google Scholar with the other one 54) in, hopefully, machine learning from
  9. Hi I got a reply that I have been waitlisted from CMU Masters program and that the final decision will be made somewhere in April. Do waitlisted people get admitted later? What is usually the norm? Thanks for the info. Grad Apps are keeping me too mentally occupied to do anything.
  10. Hello guys, Since the application deadlines for Canadian universities are approaching, we can you this thread to discuss admission prospects and results effectively. Until some universities start sending offer letters, we can share our research interests and targeted university lists to measure 2018's graduate application pool. I have applied for UBC, SFU, UoAlberta and Carleton with UoA being my preferred university. I scored an 8 in IELTS and got an 8.5 (out of 10) GPA from a renowned university in India. Have few publications and related work experience. I wish to specialize

  12. Hello everyone. I am currently a Psychology major/Business minor. I was always fascinated by Artificial Intelligence & cognitive psychology, so I am trying to find out if I could get into the AI field with a non-CS major. Some AI programs only accept CS majors and some others accept people from other disciplines too (including psychology) as long as they have good CS foundations and some basic programming knowledge. My psychology major covers a big part of the cognitive fundamentals and has some statistics courses and my business minor has some extra quantitative courses and a course in in
  13. I urgently need feedback on my SoP draft for my application for a Master's in Computer Science. Anyone willing to help? I'll PM the SoP to you. Thanks in advance
  14. Hey all, I'm applying to a mix of math and computer science PhD programs and took the October mGRE. I was wondering, since most computer science programs don't require it, what would be a high enough score to consider it a positive addition to my application? I got around the 75th percentile, which from what I can gather is just on the bottom end of what top math programs are looking for. I'm applying to some very competitive schools and don't want to put anything on my application that won't help.
  15. Hi, The last time I asked for advice on my SOP didn’t go to well. This time I will include it here in full. Hopefully this will make it easier for people to review. A short introduction about me to help with the review: I’m a Dutch computer science major. Over the last couple of months, I have been developing my statement of purposes for the universities which I will be applying to. I'm finally at a point where I feel confident enough about my SOPs that I am willing to share it with people outside my family and references. My transcript and GRE scores aren’t anywhere nea
  16. Hi, I have been corresponding with a potential supervisor from UCalgary and he gave me the go ahead to submit the application, also said he'd follow up on my application at the appropriate time. Since then I have submitted my application and relevant documents. Calgary recommends contacting a supervisor before applying so where do my admission chances stand now?Besides UCalgary I have applied in Carleton University only. Should I apply elsewhere just to be safe? I am so confused! Please suggest some universities which would be a sure shot for my profile. Details: Btech in
  17. How late does Texas A&M University, College Station roll out Spring admits? I have applied for Masters in Computer Science (MSCS) for Spring 2018. I have not heard of anybody getting a decision yet. This is worrisome for an International student like me, it will be extremely late for Visa application if I do get an admit. How many admits do they roll out for Spring anyway? They are not replying my emails as well!
  18. Hi, I’m a Dutch computer science major. Over the last couple of months, I have been developing my statement of purposes for the universities which I will be applying to. I'm finally at a point where I feel confident enough about my SOPs that I am willing to share it with people outside my family and references. My transcript and GRE scores aren’t anywhere near what I had hope so a solid SOP is really important. My average is a 7.6 on a 10-point scale which translate to roughly a 3.4 – 3.6 GPA. My GRE is V:155, Q:163 and W:4.5. For my letter of recommendations, I have found the f
  19. GPA: 3.37 TOEFL: 115 GRE (unofficial): V164 Q168 I want to pursue a Master's degree with a focus on machine learning and / or natural language processing, but I'm having a difficult time determining the range of schools I should be applying to. Ultimately, I would like to get a PhD at a top 20 university, and get involved in CS research at a competitive R&D division or laboratory. Therefore, it's important for me to find a place that is productive in terms of research in ML / NLP. I'm especially interested in grad schools in Canada, but I'm certainly open to other suggestions.

  22. I'm a junior (pure) mathematics and physics double major and I have decided to pursue a masters degree in computer science upon graduation. One of the professors at CMU exposed me to Python during high school, and he basically planted the seed. Taking a course in computational physics last year reinvigorated my love for the computer science and programming, so here I am now! My general question is: what can I do to best set myself up when I start applying to schools next year? Here's some background (just so you know what credentials I have as of right now): 3.91 GPA I've bee
  23. Hi GradCafe! I recently gave the GRE General Test and scored: (Q:170 (97), V:155 (67), AWA: 4 (60)). As you can see the verbal and AWA scores are not top notch. I wanted to know what are my chances so that I can make an informed decision. I have a great GPA (3.988 / 4), doing B. Tech. CSE at a reputed college of India. I have a research internship and have also done some projects (one long research one) and small internships. I don't have any publications yet. I hope to get good LoRs too. The dilemma here is, I have been placed at a medium-high paying job to be started after my
  24. Hello community. I am a sophomore in the University of Edinburgh (AI&CS joint major) and want to do a MS/PhD in the US. I know some basics about the admission process yet I have some general questions. 1. I only took two outside courses and there is no chance to take more. Will this hurt? 2. The University of Edinburgh enjoys a good reputation in UK and EU in the CS filed (especially AI I'd say), but how prestigious is it in the states and does it matter anyway when applying to MS/PhD? 3. Does participating in an exchange program (with a top 20 US uni) help? The con is that all grades duri
  25. Hello. I graduated from Stanford University after a MS in Chemical Engineering and failed to find a job. Reason - my major isn't the best when it comes to jobs. I have a good GPA (3.75/4.0) and did my undergraduation from a top univ in India (IIT-KGP) with a good GPA again (8.61/10.) I am considering switching to CS by the following route - doing assistantships with professors in various universities for a couple of years to get recos and then applying to Canada for an MS in CS. I have two questions. 1) Has anyone done something similar? I get the feeli
