  1. Hi, first of all pardon me for anypresumptuous remarks. I am trying to understand the process for graduate school admission. Will an undergraduate student be in disadvantage with above-average/good (not extraordinary) credentials to get into Caltech, MIT, or Stanford for Grad school, if he/she completes Bachelor's from a school that's Top<10 in aerospace-ranking(usnews) for Undergraduate and Graduate, but a Top<=30 in overall-engineering graduate school ranking, and 110 in National College ranking by UsNews? I know that a high GPA, an internship/research experience here and there
  2. I am an international applicant (Indian). Mechanical engineering undergrad and I wanna apply for aerospace engineering masters. I have solid research experience. I am working on a journal paper. But I will not know anything regarding acceptance/rejection before the application deadlines. Which means I probably can't fill it in my application. My GPA is 8.53/10.0. I am in the top 20 of my class of 132. And an institute academic merit scholar. (i.e. full scholarship based on academic performance) Test scores: GRE general test 330/340 (164q (87th percentile); 166v (98th percentile)
  3. I am having a hard time making this final decision. I am interested in Computational side of research in Aeroelasticity of Rotorcrafts (eVTOL, Wind Turbine). Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Higher stipend but only for 1 year PI is a distinguished professor with a large group and works on exactly the research I want. Supports internships. Most importantly, gives personal time and attention (I require that kind of advising style as I am coming straight from undergrad). PI mentioned that he will be able to extend my funding offer to RA after a semester or two. A better lo
  4. Hi everyone, I haven't seen any discussion of Aerospace Engineering applications (MS and PhD) for Fall 2019 so I thought I could get us started. Excited to hear from you all! :)
  5. Hello everybody, Can someone please suggest me universities for Masters in aerospace/ Aeronautical engineering for my profile- GRE- 310 (q-159, v-151) IELTS-7 CGPA- 8.01 1 paper published in non scopus journal 8 weeks project work at HAL 6 months work experience in Aeronautical related startup company.
  6. Hello all, I am wondering if anyone received an acceptance for a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering at CU Boulder for Fall - 18? I had an interview with the POI before the prospective visit day and I was told that the decision is typically made at the end of March. Is this true? Has anyone received the offer yet?
  7. I have been accepted to two schools(UCLA and University of Washington) in Aerospace PhD program without funding. Both are good enough for me in terms of the research interest but both of them didn't get me any funding. Is it a good idea to enroll and look for funding after or should I just reapply next year?
  8. Hello everyone, anyone applying for aero M.S. or Ph.D for next fall? Let's meet!
  9. Hello all! I'm new to this forum and this is my first post here. I'm in a bit of a dilemma so I thought I'd ask you guys because I've been going over the posts on this forum and you all give some great advice! Basically, I've applied to about 8 schools for my Master's in Aerospace Engineering (Aerodynamics in particular) and I've gotten accepted to 2 of them. I'm still waiting to hear from the rest. I've received admits from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft, Netherlands) and University of Illinois - Urbana Champaign (unofficial, but still). Both great schools but I have not
  10. - Class standing: Soon to be senior- My Undergraduate school: Second best engineering school in Florida- Current Overall GPA: 3.76 (Top 10% of engineers at my school)- Current Aerospace Major GPA: 3.78- Research Experience: Currently doing research, nothing special though- Work Experience: Intern at best/second best rocket company in the United States- GRE: Haven't taken yet- L.O.R: They will be standard letters, nothing specialOne caveat; I just received a C in a Fundamentals of Aerodynamics class. This, along with a C in Calculus 1, are the only Cs on my transcript. However, a C in a major c
  11. Hi, I wanted to know what schools I have good chances at with my current accomplishments. I am a senior and will graduate this coming December, so I don't have time to change anything. Undergraduate studying aerospace at an undistinguished state university GPA: 3.75 GRE: 167 Quant 164 Verb 5.0 writing Research: 3 Summers at my University, 1 Journal Paper Other things of note: 1 semester long internship , vice president of UAV club I have a list of schools I am currently thinking about, but am open to changing it after considering my chances
  12. Hi my fellow gradcafedrinkers, I received admission with no funding from University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign , MS (non-thesis) Aerospace program in Fall 2016. Having not known any friend from UIUC, I want to hear from you about: 1) Should I take the offer and go to UIUC? 2) What is the current funding situation in the Aerospace Dept at UIUC for MS students? Will I be able to secure any funding at the end of one year, after converting from Non-thesis MS to thesis MS? 3) How hard is it to get converted from non-thesis MS to thesis MS? Do international students d
  13. I've been accepted to MS Aerospace (non-thesis) at UIUC and also MS Aerospace (thesis) at University of Cincinnati. Which is better? The program at UIUC is self funded & for 1 year duration (~ $25k for tuition), however at UCinn, I 'll have to pay only $8k per year for tuition (waiver for rest of the amount) . Is UIUC worth spending the extra money? Which of these schools has better job prospects after graduation? (International student)
  14. My status on applyweb has changed from 'To Dept. for Review' to 'Dept. Decision Made' since 1st April. I haven't received any communication from the department. Does anyone know what's going on? Have I been rejected?
  15. Hello, I got a decision letter to Purdue's Graduate School. I applied for the PhD program at Purdue, but my decision letter states that my degree objective is MS in Aeronautics & Astronautics (MSAA). Does that mean I was rejected for the PhD program?
  16. So I have received all of my admits and have narrowed my selection down to two schools for a M.S. in Aerospace Engineering. 1. University of Texas Austin 2. University of Washington I know Austin is a better school (and cheaper), but I know there is a lot of aerospace companies in the Seattle area (several of which I would love to work for). I was hoping to get some opinions on which may be a better option based on name vs. industry in the area. Thanks!
  17. Hey all! I'm not sure how many people on this site are in the same situation as me, but I think this topic may be general enough to warrant discussion. I'm a UK/US dual citizen, and I've been studying physics for the last 4 years in the UK. I've applied to schools in both countries (masters in aerospace engineering), and I need help weighing the pros and cons. US Pros: 2 year Masters program gives me more time to learn, and may be viewed as 'more legitimate' Aerospace industry is much better in the States After 4 years in the UK I think I'd like to spend som
  18. I have narrowed my decision down to the following schools: University of Colorado - Boulder University of Washington - Seattle Iowa State University Georgia Tech Texas A&M Virginia Tech UC - Davis Which program is the overall best decision for an MS degree? Which school looks the best to employers? Which school is the most respected? Which program has the best job prospects? . Thanks!
  19. Hey all Did any of you got an acceptance letter from MIT Aero-Astro yet ? I see two PHD admit and one Masters admit on the result section. If you got an acceptance, please post your stats here. It will be useful for future applicants also. Thanks
  20. Has anyone heard from the Aerospace Masters program at University of Maryland yet? I haven't been able to get a hold of them so I don't know if decisions have already gone out...
  21. Has anyone heard from the Aerospace Masters program at University of Maryland yet? I haven't been able to get a hold of them so I don't know if decisions have already gone out... I just wanna know haha.
  22. I go to MIT and I was recently rejected from Georgia Tech. I suspect that this is because my GPA is a bit on a lower side. I am a solid B student. My GPA was hurt a lot by my HASS classes and the required Biology class in Junior year. I got mostly A's in my junior and senior aerospace classes. I was somewhat expecting to get into Georgia Tech, but when I didn't get in, it was defiantly a wake up call. I applied to University of Michigan and now I'm worried that I won't get into Michigan's Aerospace program in Gas Dynamics. Has anyone run into this kind of situation? I know at this point
