Hello, I got admitted to Rice PhD engineering program and to Virginia Tech PhD engineering program. Both fully funded however, I can have much better life with rice stipend compared to VT's where I can just survive. Here is my question, the adviser for Rice is very young he graduated in 2018 from top 5 school, he is very nice with five papers, two of them are published in nature journal. Also, his lab is concerned with exactly the area that I desire and want to do research in. On the other hand the adviser in VT is became a full professor 3 years ago, he is not one of the nicest people you will meet but he isn't very bad. He have a very good number of citations and have running projects and he graduated from top 1 university, however I will be doing research not exactly in the area that I prefer. I want to eventually pursue a career in academia as a faculty member, Which choice have the higher chance to make this easier, the more prestigious Rice or the more experienced professor. Note: I'm an international student.
Which for these two schools would be suitable for embedded systems? Please clarify in terms of courses, assistance opportunities and jobs. I'm confused and finding it difficult to choose from. Need a different point of view/opinion/guidance. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Hello Please, I received this email from a professor concerning my admission results: "Dear John, Thank you for your e-mail. You are being recommended for admissions into our MS program; we do not directly admit students into our PhD program from the bachelor’s degree. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer you an assistantship at this time, but if one becomes available, you will be very competitive for it. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Best regards, Russell Green" What is the best line of action for me, please?
