  1. Hi, all! I'm new here 😀 I'm graduating from Russian top master's program this year, and wish to apply for Ph.D. in Computer science in US for fall 2021. I am interested in Computer vision. I am really looking for help from kind people of GradCafe with my profile evaluation. Particularly, I am worried about my low GPA at bachelor. Bachelor institution: top-ranked Russian university. GPA: 3.0/4.0 Major: Data Analysis Master institution: other top-ranked Russian university. GPA 3.92/4.0 Major: Computer Science IELTS - 7.0 Type of S
  2. This is a cautionary note to the shiny-eyed prospective graduate student that dreams of actually learning something in this pile of steaming hot shit. If you have any self-respect and dignity, I entreat you, do not waste precious years of your productive life in this hell hole. Stay in your home country instead and learn from online courses, trust me, you'll learn more. You'll be lucky if you escape this farce of a department unscathed. The tenured professors sit on their fat asses and shit on the graduate students because that's how they can validate their miniscule ego. Some little shits hav
  3. I'm new here, so I apologize if I ask too many questions! Basically, I'm currently a senior at NYU and in May I'll be graduating with a B.A. in Math and Psychology. Going into my senior year, I had been planning on applying to several Ph.D. programs in Data Science and Statistics and my career goal was to be a data scientist. However, upon meeting with the professor whose lab I do research in, he stated that it would be very difficult for me to get into any Ph.D. program with only a year of undergraduate research experience. So, I applied to 6 Masters programs and the Ph.D. in Data Science pro
  4. I have received admission at WVU in Computer Science PhD starting Fall 2020 with full funding and tuition waiver (of 9 credits). I still deciding whether or not I should I attend WVU. What worries me is the reputation of the university - "Party School". I am not sure if this title suits the grad school at all. Does anyone have any review about the program? This would help me a lot in making a good decision. Thanks!
  5. Does anyone know how the MS program at Yale is? I'm not sure how good the CS department at Yale is.
  6. Hey everyone, Anyone with admits/rejects to the Washington computational linguistics or other similar programs?
  7. Hey guys, I am looking for some advice on graduate school choosing. I've narrowed my result down to Columbia MSCS, GaTech MSCS, CMU INI MS in Mobile and IoT Engineering and Brown ScM CS. I want to find SDE jobs, CMU got a good brand but its focus is on Mobile and IoT, which will include some hardware. However, the last semester of this program will be taken in Silicon Valley, which will be somewhat helpful for finding full time jobs I think. GaTech costs less and Columbia/Brown are Ivies. what are your thoughts?
  8. I'm waiting for the decision of the PMP. Waiting makes me feel anxious...
  9. Hi folks. I have shortlisted these two from a handful of offers as final contenders for grad school destination. This turns out to be a much harder decision than I imagined. Below I try to list all that I can think of right now. There are generic factors and there are factors that are really specific to me. Basic info: The Oxford offer is a non-funded program under the supervision of a moderately renowned professor (I rate his academic prestige at 8/10) and a Royal Society Fellow co-advisor (10/10). I can apply to China Scholarship Council (hopes are slim though) but the cost is mana
  10. Hi all, I don’t have an admit for Stanford’s MS CS yet — but it’s perhaps the only programme that would make me second guess accepting UIUC’s MS CS. Can you guys help me make the decision early? I’m certainly leaning towards UIUC, and I might decide later on to potentially move to a PhD. Tuition is not an issue for either. UIUC Interesting research topic lined up — could potentially start early? The Midwest is cheaper Seems to be more straightforward to enter PhD? Stanford Name recognition Cheers!
  11. So here's the dilemma: I'm a pure math guy who's mostly interested in theoretical computer science, but also partly interested in theoretical machine learning. I've been accepted with similar funding yada yada to both UCLA and UC Irvine's CS PhD programs. The professor at UC Irvine more so matches my interests (graph theory, approximation algorithms, pure math-y stuff) and he's also highly distinguished, coming off a 15 year stint doing theory at Georgia Tech. The professor at UCLA is more engineering focused. There's a few questions I need answers to influencing my decision:
  12. Recently I got admission from University of Chicago and University of Washington (Seattle), both are statistics master programs. I hope to work in IT companies in my future career, such as FLAG. As far as I know, the stats program in Uchicago tends to be very theroretical, and it asks students to take 9 courses and a thesis in order to graduate, which is a pretty good program for those who want to pursue a Phd program after graduation. And if I want to be a data scientist, a Phd degree is much better than a master degree when seeking for a job. Also,UChicago is well-known for many other
  13. I'd applied to Columbia for MS in Computer Science for Fall 2019 and submitted my application on Jan 15th. I got an interview invitation from on 9th March, 2019, which I gave on 10th. I haven't heard back from them since. I enquired about the same yesterday (21st March, 2019) if there was any status update for the application or if I was required to do anything else. I received a one liner reply stating that my application "remains in their review pipeline." Now, I understand around this time of the year, they'd be getting a lot of enquiries. So I wasn't really expecting
  14. I am admitted to the master of data science program at Harvard and MIIS at CMU. I am trying to decide between the two programs. Harvard's brand name is really attractive, but I don't know if a master is considered an alumnus. And also CMU is number 1 in CS field. I went to Umich for undergraduate and I majored in computer science. My current career goal is to become an SDE or data scientist after graduating from grad school. But I didn't completely rule out the possibility of getting a Ph.D. I would really appreciate any advice!
  15. Would appreciate if someone could give my essay a review and some constructive criticism, particularly with focus and improving language. Please comment and I will PM you if you are willing to help, thanks in advance!
  16. I am applying for a Masters in Computer Science, specializing in Artificial Intelligence, from a non-traditional background. Afterward, I am targeting a PhD in Computational Neuroscience or interdisciplinary in AI, Neuroscience, and related fields. Big picture, I want to contribute to mental health at the intersection of Computer Science and Neuroscience (e.g., improved diagnostics methods, computational modeling of mental illnesses, new therapeutic targets). I am looking for advice on which of the below 2 paths makes the most sense in the long term. Stats at the bottom -- thanks in
  17. Hi guys, I am a senior in college pursuing a Bachelor's degree, and I need some advice on picking my career options. I am double majoring in computer science and psychology, and I am looking for a field where I can utilize my knowledge and skills from both of the fields. I have a lot of research experience and am currently considering going to graduate school to study fields like AI or HCI. I am not interested in becoming a professor as of right now, but I enjoy every step of research projects. However, I am still unsure of what exactly I want to do or how I can integrate two separat
  18. Hello everyone I am a master student at Georgia Tech, in Electrical Engineering. My major is Signal Processing. I want to continue to PhD but change my field to a more creative/graphics side. I am a digital illustrator on the side. There is also some geographical conditions for choosing phd school. I have made the following list, and would really appreciate some comments. It would be good if the school is in a nice city, not bad crime situation or middle of nowehere. Planning to apply to CS except for MIT, where it is Media Arts and Sciences. Thank you !

  24. Hey guys, I got accepted by the Master in Intelligent Information System (MIIS) and Master in Computational Data Science (MCDS) programs in Carnegie Mellon University. Both programs are industry-oriented and are provided by the Language Technology Institute. As far as I'm concerned, the main difference is that MIIS is more focused on applying Machine Learning to Natural Language Processing as well as Text Mining while MCDS focuses more on Machine Learning itself as well as Data Science. Personally, I'm interested in all the fields mentioned above so it doesn't matter which one
