  1. 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 advance! Post bac before Masters (total of 3 years; 1 year post-bac, 2 years Masters) Tufts Straight into the Masters (2.5-3 years, assuming a semester or two for pre-reqs) UPenn (MCIT first), Harvard, NYU, UC Davis, UC Irvine, Boston University, Northeastern ----- Stats Undergrad from Top 30 school in US, majoring in Psychology and Neuroscience GPA: 3.04 (high upward trend with 3.65 GPA in latter half) Major/Sciences GPA: 3.67 332 GRE (166Q/166V/5.5AW) 3 years of management consulting consulting in healthcare/pharma 2 years of Psychology research (started in undergrad, continued post-graduation, no publication) Additional stats, if post bac: 1 year of relevant research Recommendation letters from professors in target area GPA boost, and demonstration of ability to perform in relevant coursework Pre-requisites met In addition to the above benefits from the post bac, making me more competitive for 'better' programs, I think it: allows me to maximize my time during Masters for research (not spent struggling thorough coursework, and to narrow down research interests for the next step). Any thoughts and advance appreciated. Thanks.
  2. 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 separate fields. There is no professor or staff at my college who has experience in these two fields, and the suggestions I receive from professors are usually biased towards their field. I am also struggling to decide if I should (1) find a job after graduation and keep searching for an ideal field in graduate, (2) go to master's program, or (3) go to master's & doctoral dual program. Getting scholarships is another factor that I have to consider as I will not able to financially support myself without a full scholarship and some stipend. Someone told me that if I want to go to graduate school right away, I should choose a dual program in master's & Ph.D. because they tend to have more funds for students than master's programs. As someone who needs scholarships but also unsure of what field to study, I am very conflicted with what path to take. Could you please give me some insights on this situation? Any advice is helpful. Thank you so much in advance!

  8. I will be glad if someone can help reviewing my SOP for PhD position in Computer Science. If you can, please let me know to send it to you as a private message.
  9. 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 I choose. However, a balance between study and social life means a lot to me. Please let me know which one (if any) has a chill environment and is less competitive. Thanks

  17. Hello Folks, I hope all of you are doing well. Please use this thread to discuss Admits, Reject and Waiting for Applicants of University of Western Ontario for Computer Science Fall 2019. How long is the reply going to take? My Application: MSc Computer Science Coursework (1.5 Years) Fall 2019, CGPA: 8.6/10 TOEFL(IBT): 99. Regards.
  18. Hello. I got admitted by UCF for their CS PhD program starting in Fall 2019. The acceptance letter said the following: " If you are awarded a financial offer package (for degree-seeking students only), this information will be sent separately from this admission letter". It has been 1 month since I receive the acceptance letter and I still have not received any information about funding. I found that I am not the only one without that information on the Results Search section of thegradcafe. Does anyone have some information about it?
  19. Greetings, I have recently been accepted to an MS/PhD program at КАUST and am trying to decide if I should go there. The professor and the group's research look great to me, they moved there very recently from a top 20 uni (their motivation was that КАUST provides much better funding, they don't have to apply to any grants and have nearly unlimited travel funds, more time and freedom for research, etc.). Judging by the current PhD students and a discussion with the professor, I think there are great prospects to do some amazing research and publish in top conferences during my PhD with the group. The position would likely be my top choice ever, if it were in a more well-known western place. I am mainly concerned about my career opportunities in competitive places in the US/Europe after getting that PhD. I have seen some quite radical opinions that it is nearly impossible to get a good position in academia in the US with a PhD from a non-western institution (e.g. "Is obtaining a PhD from an Asian country really a career suicide?"). I am also not sure about prospects of getting research positions/internships in tech companies (e.g. machine learning teams in Google, FB, etc.), since it seems they already have lots of qualified candidates from the US and it may be a problem to get through HR screen in the first place. The professor surely has some connections that would be helpful, but it still seems like a huge risk to me. The offered scholarship is pretty good, but not extraordinary: similar yearly salary to what a PhD would get in the US + free housing/no taxes (cost of living is not much lower than in the US). I am OK with the location and its advantages/disadvantages, I'd say I am really excited to explore a place like that for some time (e.g. a year), but not super excited about spending next 4-5 years there (but that is a less important factor for me). I didn't apply to any other PhD programs this year. Getting a 3-year BS from a not so highly ranked uni in Europe (with great GPA though), with average recommendation letters, without substantial research experience, I intended to first get a masters and more research experience and try my chances at PhD applications later. At the moment, my other option is an MS program in a top Swiss uni. Although it is somewhat questionable what are my chances of getting a comparably good PhD after that Swiss program, since the MS program here is more oriented on taking courses and there is not much time for doing research, only in summer and in the MS thesis (but that is not my main question here). TL;DR: Should I do a PhD in a not widely known non-western institution, but in a great group with great funding? Should I be concerned about my career prospects in western countries, or is the institution's reputation nearly irrelevant compared to my research output? Should I rather aim to find a PhD in a well-known top place, if that is what matters for me? Thank you for your opinions.
  20. How many of you have accepted MSc in Computer Science(Fall 2019) offer from Oxford University? Anyone here who has been shortlisted for any of the Oxford's "no seperate application required" scholarships?
  21. How unusual is it for someone to apply to CogSci PhD programs with a research background in artificial intelligence/data science? How should I ask for recommendation letters if my strongest ties are to faculty in Computer Science? I'm mostly interested in computational models of behavior, language processing, decision making, etc. My BS is cogsci but since I focused more on the computational side during my undergrad, I feel like I might have more knowledge gaps than someone from psychology or neuroscience. I'm a bit hesitant to try for a MA/MS program first since I'm already pursuing a MS in computer science, and I'd really like to jump into some PhD soon. Edit: Edited the title since "CS" can stand for both computer science and cognitive science, haha.
  22. 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 a very verbose response about the status update. But what do you guys think? Is this a positive indication? Or does this imply a rejection? Or worse yet, does this imply nothing at all and it could turn out either way? Honestly, this wait has now become nerve wracking.
