  1. I'm applying to translational biomedical graduate programs and am looking to replace my old laptop. I'm more familiar with Macs but know that there are some statistical packages, molecular modeling programs, etc. that run better on a PC or Mac. And PC's tend to be cheaper - is it worth switching to a PC or should I stay with what I know?
  2. Hi y'all, So quick question for you all...my computer is currently dying a very slow death. It's gone from being able to last days to holding a FULL battery for maybe 4 hours. It's gotten pretty bad, so I'm in the market for a new laptop. I've been using a macbook for the last 6 years. I like the simplicity of it. But, that being said, I'm open to other idea's. I've been doing some research into the Microsoft Surface laptop which seems pretty close to the macbook. What does everyone else use? I'm looking for something with great battery life, easy to use, and will last me thro
  3. Looking for guidance in choosing new laptop. We've had a MacBook Pro since 2011 and don't use enough of the features to justify the cost of another one! My needs are: MS Office Netflix/Hulu/Etc. streaming Reliability for interacting during live online grad school classes. Preferences are: Intel i5 or i7 SSD Comfortable keyboard 15 inch screen Any advice, warnings, and guidance are welcome! Thank you.
  4. What kind of computer is everyone getting (or already have) for grad school? I have a Macbook Pro that's four years old, but I'm wondering if I should get a new computer for grad school.
  5. Which of these two schools would be suitable for embedded systems?

  8. Hi all, has any graduate student received an offer from the ECE department at UofT ? I'm a MSc applicant and would like to know if they started sending offers or not. Thanks
  9. Hi all, has any graduate student received an offer from the ECE department at U of Toronto ? Thanks
  10. Hey all, I'm applying to a mix of math and computer science PhD programs and took the October mGRE. I was wondering, since most computer science programs don't require it, what would be a high enough score to consider it a positive addition to my application? I got around the 75th percentile, which from what I can gather is just on the bottom end of what top math programs are looking for. I'm applying to some very competitive schools and don't want to put anything on my application that won't help.
  11. Hello everyone, I'm new to the Grad Cafe. I'm an international 3rd year undergraduate student from another country who is seeking a funded phd program in electrical/computer engineering in the US (I cannot afford colleges in the US). In my first year of college, due to some health problems my GPA ended up very poorly (1.2/4 gpa in the 1st year). However, I have fixed it later on, and raised it to 3.3 / 4 by the end of my 3rd year. And I can say that my average GPA in the last two years is 3.5+. In my school it is usually very hard to get high grades, so I am right now the best stude
  12. Is there anyone applied for TUM Summer semester 2017? Waiting for admission results :/
  13. I had an interview on Monday: a short 15-20 minute video chat (I am doing my masters in France) with a professor whose work I had mentioned in my statement of purpose. It was a nice conversation, but I was left with more questions than answers? Does it mean I have a higher chance of acceptance? Since he didn't mention my admission status, does it mean I didn't get in? My real question is: do you typically end an interview knowing whether or not you are accepted?
  14. I have been invited to a phone interview with the University of Oxford. A few weeks back they sent me 4 mostly technical questions I had to answer within 48 hours, so I'm wondering, could I still expect technical questions during the phone interview? Or will it be behavioral, given that they already tested my technical ability?
  15. Hi all, I got admits from University of Massachusetts-Amherst (VLSI/CAD and Embedded Systems) as well as USC (VLSI Design). My profile is as follows: GRE:165Q/156V/4AWA TOEFL: 113 CGPA:8.75/10 So I was looking for advice as to which university to pick off the both and the factors to be considered while picking. Thank you'll
  16. Hi everyone, Looking for a new computer for grad school. I will need to run some simulations and computational stuff locally. I also need to put together presentations quite often (~3/month). Dont care about local memory too much since I have a 4tb external drive to store all my data. Any suggestions would be great! Even just sharing your current setup is fine too.
  17. Hi everyone, I'm starting graduate school in the Fall and currently on the market for a new, reliable laptop. Unfortunately, I know nothing about laptops/technology (I've been using a MacBook since 2009 for leisure and work laptops for data analysis and paper/poster presentation) and would really appreciate some advice! Here's some qualifications: 1) Inexpensive, because come on. I'm going to be a grad student. 2) Lightweight. I really hate using heavy laptops and would love to have a lightweight laptop that can be easily transported. 3) Battery life. I'm currently in an
  18. Hi, would I be able to get into a graduate program for biomedical engineering with a degree in computer engineering? would it be better to get a degree in electrical engineering? I think I would like computer engineering better than electrical. Also the compE program at my school seems to lean heavily towards the CS side of the spectrum. only 2 EE classes and a software engineering class, the rest is the same as the CS curriculum. I want to major in computer engineering but I'm worried I wont learn enough about EE to be a good biomedical engineer. what should I do? I havnt done any
  19. I've been recently admitted to both (Computer Science & Engineering - UC San Diego, Computer Engineering - U Southern California). I have trouble deciding which one I should pick, so I will lay out what I have discovered so far. 1. A little bit of background I received BS Computer Engineering from Purdue University. Being an out-of-nowhere campus, I am hardly able to land jobs that I really like doing. I ended up working for a traditional company in a tiny town. Although the money is really good and the technical challenge is just ok, I don't really have passion for my work and I hate
  20. Hello all, Until now, I have been accepted to 4 universities to pursue a PhD degree in electrical and computer engineering, and at this point I am a bit confused. These schools are: 1. USC (Computer Engineering), in contact with professors in computer architecture. There are professors showing considerable interest in working with me. Location-wise: very enjoyable weather, close to very good places for travelling and close to industry but I heard that the neighborhood is not very nice. 2+2 year guaranteed fellowship: I have the first two years to decide which professo
  21. Hello everyone. I am an undergrad student at a not well known private university in New York. I would like to apply to a few top schools for an MS in Computer Science (possibly PhD). University: Private liberal arts university with small CS department Major: Computer Science and Math (Double Major) GPA: 3.89 GPA Major: Computer Science: 4.0 (ranked 1st in department of about 10) GPA Major: Mathematics: 3.91 (ranked 2nd in department of about 20) GRE: Have not taken yet but I should do very well in Quant 760-800 and above average in Verbal Work Experience: Recently finished a 6 month
  22. Hi guys, I am now applying for the program at Upenn. My undergraduate major is MIS, and I took one year exchange program(non-degree) at University of Oregon--this year I majored in CS, but I only took 2 classes in CS due to some reason. There are two program at Upenn, MCIT is for those without backgroud in CS area and MSE intends for CS guys. I haven't taken several core classes as Operating system, Network...But I did have some classes--database applicaiton, programming in Java, C++ and Windows. So now i am wondering which program(MCIT or MSE?) I should apply... This question really c
  23. I am in quite a conundrum, and I was hoping that you of thegradcafe's forums might help. I received a B.A. from Duke University last year, majoring in English and Classical Languages. I am now in an M.A./ Ph.D. program in Comparative Literature; the plan was for me to be a professor. It has taken me perhaps too long to realize that I find the humanities to be little more than a worthless curiosity: pleasurable, but not worth diligent study. I am interested in artificial intelligence, particularly the field of natural language processing. I have learned C++ on my own and kept up with ma
