  1. Hey everyone. I've been accepted into both CMU's MHCI and UW's MHCDE programs and I've been having a difficult time making a decision between the two. If anyone here has any insights on how the programs stack up against one another I'd really appreciate hearing from you! I'll break down some info about myself and my thoughts about the programs for people to weigh in. A bit about myself: 1. Coming directly from undergrad in cognitive science, CS, and english 2. Minimal work experience (some freelance graphic design work, contract web development work, start up proof of concept &
  2. I wrote a piece comparing MHCI and MDes program at CMU. I'm a junior student currently in the BHCI program, and I've been doing a lot of research on this while deciding which is the right program for me - a lot of the insights were not available on the Internet. Hopefully, it's helpful to some people! https://medium.com/@songyh1996/mdes-vs-mhci-carnegie-mellon-university-bfb185c71e63
  3. Dear readers, Hello, I have been recently admitted to Carnegie Mellon University Mechanical Engineering's M.S. - Research Program. The offer letter says that this program is self-funded and there is no available scholarships or fellowships from the department. Does it mean that I cannot take a research assistant position from any laboratories? I thought M.S. students can also receive tuition waive + stipend if they find proper RA position. This is really big deal cause I cannot afford whole expenditures by myself, and then I should decide the university that I admitted
  4. Applying to Environmental Engineering MS (and later PhD) here. I got an acceptance from Carnegie Mellon Feb 1st (funding but not full ride), and an acceptance from Montana State University March 27th. I still have not heard back from the other two schools, (Oregon State University and University of Minnesota). Minnesota is my number 1 pick because of their Bioremediation focus (which is my focus). But I don't know what to do because the April 15th deadline is this Sunday! Also Minnesota seems to be avoiding me because the professor I have been communicating with for the last year is suddenly u
  5. Hi all, I was recently accepted into Carnegie Mellon's Heinz school for their MSISPM degree, which I am really excited about. However, before I make any decisions I really would like to find out more about the direction this program will point me post education. Here are some questions that I feel will help to guide me. They are geared for students who have previously been admitted or are currently admitted. I'll add that I would like to sharpen my technical skills (pen testing / network security) because those are where I am lacking. My undergraduate degree is in computer security, but i
  6. Hello all, I got accepted to the following programs and would highly appreciate your help on deciding. I studied Political Science with the focus on Public Policy and worked around Sustainable Development in the land-use sector in an international organization for 3 years. Am considering PhD also, but this might change depending on the masters program I choose. Below are key traits of each school from my point of view: 1. Master of Environmental Management (MEM), Forestry and Environmental Studies, Yale Pro: Strongest school in Env. management
  7. I have been accepted to the Engineering and Public Policy (EPP) PhD program at Carnegie Mellon and the Energy and Resources Group (ERG) Masters/PhD track at Berkeley, both fully funded with similar stipends. I am interested in researching how policy can influence the effect that renewable energy integration has on the power grid and electricity markets, with a focus on real world applicability. Both seem like great programs and I have no idea how I can decide between them. Any thoughts?
  8. I got accepted into a couple Computer Science MS schools and I've narrowed it down to: Stanford's MS CS program and CMU INI MSIS program. I got a full tuition scholarship and an RA stipend at CMU. I've also heard that Stanford has TA/RA positions available to students. I am interested in doing industry related research in the computer security and ML field. I am currently doing my undergrad at UC Berkeley EECS and I feel like Stanford might be a good fit for me just because other Masters students at Stanford may have a similar educational background. Stanford would also give me the flexibility
  9. Hi all, Thanks in advance for your input. I could really use it! I've been accepted to the following schools for the Master of Public Policy. I intend to study education policy. UVA (with sizable scholarship) Berkeley (no scholarship) Columbia (1/4 scholarship) Duke (about 1/2 scholarship) UChicago (about 1/4 scholarship, but could change) Michigan (about 1/3 scholarship, but could change) Carnegie Mellon (about 3/4 scholarship) Vanderbilt (very small scholarship) I was also waitlisted at HKS. Because of financial concerns, I'm priori
  10. Carnegie Mellon or Georgia Tech for masters in mechanical engineering? The real question being is there some feature of CMU that merits the extra cost over Georgia tech? Thanks, M

  12. Short version: should I do into debt at my dream school, or accept a full-ride to my third choice? I was thrilled when I got into my dream program, the MHCI program at CMU. I never thought I would get in, and I feel like I won the lottery. Then today I was offered $80,000 scholarship from University of Michigan. Suddenly everything feels very real. I think CMU is a much better fit-- I want to make things, not research. I love that it is a professional program, and I like that it is smaller, and very focused curriculum. The curriculum seems perfectly tailored to my interests. Not going to
  13. I was accepted to both the Duke MPP and Heinz MSHCPM programs and am planning on going into the field of healthcare. What are everyone's opinions regarding one, or both, of the programs. What are some strengths/weaknesses of both (I am very good with numbers and do want a quantitatively heavy grad education)? What is the job placement like for either and how much pull does Duke Sanford have in the field of healthcare? Any thoughts?
  14. I've been accepted into the CMU and Georgia Tech programs for MS in Environmental Engineering. I've got funding at CMU(12,000 USD) and no funding at Georgia Tech, so the expenses turn out to be similar at both places. Both are really great programs and i'm not able to make up my mind. Could someone help? Thanks!
  15. I have received acceptance letters from University of Chicago and Carnegie Mellon for their public policy grad programs and am trying to decide between the two. Chicago is obviously my number one choice, however the funding offers I received make this a difficult decision. Both schools cost about $90K for tuition for two years, and while University of Chicago offered me no funding or scholarships, Carnegie Mellon offered a scholarship covering 80% of tuition (essentailly $15K of tuition instead of $90K over two years). It is also important to note I currently have no undergraduate debt an
  16. I have yet to visit the majority of my schools and there are certainly many factors I consider along with the institution's reputation/academic prestige/job placement. However, rankings are inconsistent, statistics are subjective, and I want to get a general sense of your guys' overall opinion of these schools in terms of this particular factor. I am sure many people are in the same boat as me as I applied to quite a few schools, so maybe this topic will help others as well! They are all such great schools so it will be a rough decision based largely on visits, so I'll keep y'all updated.
  17. How many students are normally waitlisted for a robotics masters at Carnegie Mellon ? Is it reasonable to expect to get off the waitlist?
  18. I am deciding between CMU Heinz MSPPM and University of Chicago's Harris School MPP. Harris: #4 by US N&W Report in both social policy, policy analysis; Heinz: #7 in policy analysis Switched places from the last USNWR rankings for policy analysis, but both clearly top-tiered and quantitatively strong. For financial aid, Harris offered 10k/year and Heinz 24k/year. Which one should I choose? Does anyone know much about the differences between these two programs? Thanks!
  19. Hi, I am an Undergraduate student applying for MS in Electrical Engineering for Fall 2012 at UMich, USC, CMU, Cornell and Arizona State University. I have finished my online application part couple of days ago. I have also asked ETS to send the universities my GRE and TOEFL Scores. The letters of recommendation have been submitted by the professors. Now the only remaining part is the supplementary document submission. But I was wondering what exactly is meant by supplementary document. Should I be sending only my undergraduate transcripts to the university or should I include another cop
