  1. Hello, I have both the above admits for fall 2020 which I deferred to 2021. I know Berkeley ranks much higher(#3) in Mechanical Engineering than UCSD, but I couldn't find any ranking data related to Fung Institute specifically. How will you compare Berkeley's Fung institute to UCSD's Jacobs school? Also, I will be pursuing non thesis MS at UCSD as I dont want a research oriented career. M.Eng seems a better choice but the ranking of Fung institute compared to Jacobs School, the cost of the program and lack of on campus employment during M.Eng is making me think twice.
  2. For all those waiting it out
  3. Both seem great, though highly different, options. At times, I find myself considering the schools through a Head/Heart dichotomy, where: Heart = Berkeley; Head = Princeton. This may be foolishness, but there it is. *** Princeton Pros: Better stipend, less teaching, cheaper cost of living, proximate to New York and Philly, more funding for archival research, language study, and conference travel. Princeton Cons: (Allegedly) more traditional and hierarchical, not exactly a vibrant town, smaller [possibly a pro], more self-enclosed, less pleasant weather/environment overall.
  4. Hello! Have any of the 2018 J-School applicants heard from the school - interviews, writing tests? It looks like that they start sending out invitations in December.
  5. Hi, need some advice! I really don't know what to make of my situation right now. Should I be elated or just downright sad? Am I being too sceptical, or just playing it safe? I received an admit from Carnegie Mellon University and the University of California, Berkeley for my PhD (Direct Entry) in Mechanical Engineering. I was given a potential research advisor for both universities and told to contact him regarding my research domain and funding. It was only upon discussing further with the profs did I realise that both the offers were without funding!! I mean, who does a PhD WITHOU
  6. I am currently considering between these choices: - UC Berkeley Mechanical Engineering (Product Design/ Controls) [https://me.berkeley.edu/graduate/meng/] - Penn Robotics [https://www.grasp.upenn.edu/academics/masters] - Cornell Engineering Management [https://www.engmanagement.cornell.edu/em] My background is in Mechanical Engineering from a top 5 undergraduate school. Mainly hope to develop a deep specialization in robotics, controls, design for manufacturability, hardware systems development on the technical side, and take 2-3 management courses from the business school.
  7. Hi guys, So that's the question. I am doing a PhD in architecture history and theory and have been admitted in both programs. Any inside from the departments? What would you recommend or not? I am an European applicant so do not have much information before hand.... Any info is welcomed! Thanks !
  8. I (international student) got accepted into these two programs, which are quite different, but I believe both could lead me to a good position as a data scientist, in the US preferably. I am struggling to make a decision. On the one hand, NYU's 2-year Master is a top-10 program in the subject that would allow me to dive deep into data science core subjects as well as to do an internship during the summer. I feel that I would learn a lot in this program, get to know a commnity that is doing cutting edge work on the field and, hopefully, access good job opportunities The program is expensiv
  9. Hi, Has anyone or their mother heard back from UC Berkeley's MPH Program? I applied under Health and Social Behavior, still waiting, and I'm wondering if I have anyone in the same boat with me.
  10. Goals/Interests: Econometrician/Biostatistician, or a Statistician/Data Scientist with domain/research focus in the biotech venture capital industry. (Or, some ‘correct’ combination of these or related labels that might be more appropriate…) Beyond market/industry research, I would also like to focus on understanding the underlying statistical methodologies and techniques being applied in medicine/biotechnology/health science (i.e. machine learning's application etc. etc.…) My goal is to convince a biotech venture capital firm that they could benefit from employing a statisti
  11. I've been given interviews for the Bioengineering Program at UC Berkeley-UCSF and the Systems, Synthetic, and Physical Biology program at Rice University. Does anybody know anything about these two programs? I'm specifically thinking about the quality and relevance of their synbio research output, as well as any comparisons of the programs themselves. I'm also worried about the housing situation for grad students at berkeley, as well as grad students being way overworked. Does anybody know what its like to work for Jay Keasling or Adam Arkin in particular? I know they are big n
  12. Did any international student get admit from the UC Berkeley's Chemical Engineering - PDP program ? If yes, please share when did you get the admit and did the portal status change ? Does anyone know if the admissions are in waves or it's a one shot process ? Previous years applicants, please help.
  13. Can someone please help in providing me the questions that are asked on the interview and also their answers in key points? It would be a great help!
  14. Is there anyone who got interviews from POIs? I saw plenty of interview postings last year, but not nowadays... Does the interview indicate admission for UCB? (I mean being interviewed = high possibility of admission) Also, when will the results come out?? It's really painful to wait
  15. I've been looking around different phd programs that have a focus area in synthetic biology research, and have really like two programs in particular, namely the Bioengineering Program at UC Berkeley-UCSF and the Systems, Synthetic, and Physical Biology program at Rice University. Does anybody know anything about these two programs? I'm specifically thinking about the quality and relevance of their synbio research output, as well as any comparisons of the programs themselves.
  16. (1)Third year CS major in a US university(on the boundary of top 20...), will apply for PhD during my senior year (2)Took GRE once during my second year, and got 160 on reading, 168 on math, and 3.5 on writing (2)Expected GPA during application:3.75/4(our school doesn’t have grade inflation) (3)Since I’m interested in theoretical CS, I’ve taken a lot more upper division math classes than required, and a few CS grad classes related to my area of interest(got As in all of them) (4)One year of research experience(no publications yet), 1 internship experience (5)Will get
  17. How is the application reviewed in the interview phase of EECS MS/PhD at UC Berkeley? If interviewed and accepted into the program, would the interviewer (by default) be the PhD supervisor? Or, is the student first accepted into the program and needs to find a research supervisor later? If the students are first accepted into the program and not by a specific advisor, how would funding be handled?
  18. Hi everyone, Has anyone applied for the UC Berkeley online MPH for the spring semester? If so, what were your GRE scores/GPA and have you heard back yet? Thanks!
  19. Hi Everyone! I haven't seen a Goldman thread for Fall 2018, so I thought I'd get the ball rolling -- as well as try to offload some of this anxiety I'm feeling waiting for more results! I applied to 9 schools, mainly for MPPs, and want to study environmental policy (focusing on progressive climate adaptation/mitigation responses). I've been accepted at UCDenver and UWashington Evans so far, with a nice funding offer from the latter (which was an incredible surprise and confidence booster). Berkeley is my top choice, and I waver between feeling good about my chances and having no idea
  20. Hello everyone! I wanted to start a chat about admissions. Has anyone received information on when we are supposed to find out about if we got in or not?
  21. Hi All, I recently was accepted to both the UPenn Biotech program and the UCSF/Berkeley MTM (master of translational medicine) program. I am in a bit of a dilemma because I really like both programs, but being that I don't really know what I want to do after the programs (aka my career trajectory), I don't know which program is better for me. I'm NOT concerned with the cost, or areas associated with the 2 schools. I'm more concerned with the networking benefits and where the alumni of the two schools end up after the program. Also, would attending UPenn help get me into the MBA program at
  22. Like most here I'm trying to decide between two great programs. I was accepted to UC Berkeley's Environmental Science, Policy, and Management PhD program with full funding + stipend, as well as Yale's Masters of Environmental Management program with partial funding covering approximately half of my costs. I have several scholarships lined up which could theoretically (if awarded) cover the rest of the costs should I choose Yale-- it would just mean more leg work on my part. I would ultimately like to start an environmental consulting firm to assist Tribes with the development of resource
  23. I have received acceptance for MA Statistics from Yale and Berkeley. My plan is to do a Phd, whether directly after masters or after some work ex is something I will decide later. while Berkeley has the "better ranked" department, i feel that i would get more individual attention at Yale. Also, Yale will have more diversity. The Bay Area is right there so getting a job after Berkeley. but my dream is to work at NPOs and international orgs (like uN, WHO, BMGF, etc) which are at the east coast. please HELP!!
  24. Applied for MEng in EECS. Anyone else waiting it out as well? Or heard anything back??
  25. hi, i am deciding between uc berkeley and university of chicago for my MSW. i am interested in macro-level social work and organizational leadership, specifically at youth-serving non-profits and gov't agencies. I'm especially interested in positive youth development, management and planning, and issues/intersections of race, ethnicity, poverty and inequality. i like to work hard and study complex issues in my classes. I would like to practice social work in the Bay Area after graduation, but SSA seems like the best academic fit. Do you agree? Any insight is appreciated. Thank you.
