  1. Hello, My background is somewhat unconventional and I am having a very difficult time narrowing down the range of schools to apply to that I would likely get in. Especially since most graduate school profiles are vague on their admission statistics, it is difficult to determine what is a likely possibility of acceptance. I am unsure of which schools to target, if some of these masters programs are too ambitious, or if I am selling myself short. Right now, my school list includes the University of Texas, Texas A&M, Colorado Boulder, University of Chicago, Boston University, Univer
  2. Hi Everyone! I was wondering if I could get some advice on what tiers of schools I should apply for? I am going to apply for an MS in stats OR CS (Fall 2021). Demographics: Eastern European Undergrad: McGill Major: Joint Honours Mathematics and Economics GPA: 3.72 overall, Math major GPA: 3.73, Econ major GPA: 3.65 Coursework: MATH: Calc 3, Advanced (A,A), Honours Algebra 1, 2, 3, 4 (A,A-,A,B-), Honours Analysis 1,2 (A,A-), Honours ODEs (A), Honours Probability (A-), Honours Nonlinear Dynamics (A), Honours PDEs (B), Honours Statistics (A-).
  3. Hello! Has anyone heard from TUM regarding Wintersemester 2020/21 masters admissions? and does anyone have any idea how long it takes to hear back about admissions from TUM after your documents have been sent to the intended department? Any information would be highly appreciated, thanks in advance!
  4. I am mainly interested in Machine learning and Computer vision. The confusion exists as I am told ETHZ is clearly better in terms of research, so that will help if I decide to go for a PhD later. On the other hand, job opportunities are much better in US, so if I dont go for a PhD, UCLA holds an advantage.
  5. Hi everyone! I'm having a lot of trouble deciding which M.S. in Computer Science (with a focus on computer security) I should pick. Here is the list of the programs I've been accepted to: University of Waterloo - fully funded University of Virginia - $2000 fellowship, (potentially, i'd get in-state tuition, which is ~20k/year. out of state tuition is ~35k/year) Georgia Tech - no funding (~20k/year) University of Utah - no funding (~20k/year) University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign - no funding (~35k/year) UMD College Park - no funding (~40k/year) Ge
  6. Hi, I have received admits from both these universities. Considering the fact that Santa Barbara rent is on the higher side (living is double of Blacksburg rent), and has only 50% waiver if you get TA, unlike Tech which gives full waiver, but UCSB has a great systems research group compared to tech. I am inclined towards systems + ml research. Which university would you suggest? I am inclined to go to UCSB, but I don't know if the higher cost justify the research group and the location.
  7. Hello there 🙂, I'm seeking to apply for Computer Science PhD next fall. Here are the list of questions that I have : Does it matter if I have research experience on a different topic than what I'm interested in? I am interested in ML/NLP but most of my experience was done on cloud computing I have written multiple research papers but most were from individual studies. Only one is currently being reviewed for publication, I am unsure whether if it will get published tbh. Does my non-published papers matter and is it a good idea to list them on my CV?
  8. Hi All, I am really confused between the 2 programs. My end goal is to be in a leadership position of a tech company. Currently, I am leaning towards UPenn as CIS is a well established general degree whereas MSAII is super specific. To be honest, I like MSAII's curriculum better. Any inputs would be much appreciated. Thank you!
  9. Hi every one, I created this thread to share our results and our background and probably level of stress 😱
  10. Had a skype call with a professor from Huddersfield University. We got along really well, she was interested in my research proposal. But no official admission offer from the University yet, after 2 weeks. Is this normal?
  11. Have you guys received your official letter yet? Query for international students: Have you received your I-20?
  12. I want to apply for PhD program in mechanical engineering at Stanford. Furthermore, I want to conduct research in the area of computer vision and computer graphics with application to robotics, manufacturing and mechanical industry. However, there are not any professors in mechanical engineering department who conduct research in this area, most of the relevant professors are in Computer science or electrical engineering. Is there a way to highlight my intent to conduct interdisciplinary research with a professor outside mechanical department in the Statement of Purpose without nega
  13. I had been rejected from UT Austin's on campus MS CS for Fall 19 and they offered me an online MS admit instead. The program is new, starting in Fall 19. While I have an admit from another lesser ranked school, Austin was my first choice. I have heard Georgia Tech allows you to convert from the online program to the on campus one after a year. Can I join the other school and transfer to UT Austin's on campus MS CS after a semester? What do they usually look for when transferring schools? I know its a long shot, given that I have already been handed out a reject, but wanted to know my
  14. Hello everyone, New to the gradcafe and first time posting here. I am hoping to get some advice on what colleges (Top 10, 20, 30, 40+ rankings) I can aim for based on my application (GPA, GRE, LOR's all described below). I am hoping to apply for a Master in Computer Science this year and start in Fall 2019. I am an international student who attended UC San Diego from 2012 - 2016. I graduated with a degree in Chemical Engineering with a Cumulative GPA of 3.065 (just met the cut off!) but major GPA is 3.65. The reason my major GPA is so much higher than my cumulative is because of a c
  15. I have been accepted to the dual MS program in Journalism and Computer Science at Columbia University. Columbia Journalism school has offered aid of $36,250 for 2018-19. Even if I manage to get the same amount for 2019-20, then too the remaining expenses (including tuition and living) is about $150,000. Coming from a middle class family in India, it is impossible for me to pay this much fees. I asked the office of admissions and financial aid at the J-School if they could increase the aid amount, but they turned down my request. There are certain universities like Chicago and UPenn where stude
  16. Hi, I have been corresponding with a potential supervisor from UCalgary and he gave me the go ahead to submit the application, also said he'd follow up on my application at the appropriate time. Since then I have submitted my application and relevant documents. Calgary recommends contacting a supervisor before applying so where do my admission chances stand now?Besides UCalgary I have applied in Carleton University only. Should I apply elsewhere just to be safe? I am so confused! Please suggest some universities which would be a sure shot for my profile. Details: Btech in
  17. Hello, I have secured admission in 1. MSCS from CMU and 2. MEng in EECS from UCB with specialisation in Visual Computing and Computer Graphics with $16,000 grant I am confused between the two as I am not sure if a one-year MEng program would be treated equivalent to an MS, when it comes to job prospects. My aim is working in the industry, preferably industrial research at places like Disney Labs, or Dreamworks Research. I am pretty sure I won't be doing a PhD in the near future, at least. Will UCB give me an edge as the program is industry centric with an intensive cap
  18. How late does Texas A&M University, College Station roll out Spring admits? I have applied for Masters in Computer Science (MSCS) for Spring 2018. I have not heard of anybody getting a decision yet. This is worrisome for an International student like me, it will be extremely late for Visa application if I do get an admit. How many admits do they roll out for Spring anyway? They are not replying my emails as well!
  19. Hello. Today I took the GRE Test for the first time and got 152 on Verbal and 163 on Quant. I am an international student if it means something. I am entering the Senior Year of Chemical Engineering at a Mid-Tier state US college. However, in my junior year I found my growing interest in CS, took a couple of CS courses and decided to do MS in Computer Science. My GPA is 3.43 right now, I have worked for a year in the Chemistry Lab, had an internship this summer in an oil company and also volunteered for installation of solar panels in a low-income community. Also, I am learning Java, C+ and An
  20. Hi, Please help me decide between TU Delft and KTH for masters in Computer Science. Please comment on the following aspects in the areas of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and data science. 1) Faculty 2) Job Prospects (hot jobs in ML/AI/data science) 3) International reputation (esp. to apply for jobs internationally) 4) Life there in general/academic system (how hard it is to get top scores) Any information is appreciated. Thank You.
  21. Hello. I am applying to top CS schools in the US. Anyone willing to critique my SOP? Kindly PM me if interested. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  22. Hi, I'm thinking about applying for a Computer Science masters programs for Fall of 2017 and I'm having a dilemma whether or not I should even apply. I would like to go to a program within top 10 - 40 but I'm not sure if I would make a competitive candidate, let alone an interesting one. My background in college was BA in Biology and International Studies and my GPA was 3.3 from a top-20 (US) university. I only just started taking computer science courses at the beginning of this year to get ready and so far I've taken Introduction to Programming focused on C (A-), Discre
  23. Hi, I am a CS graduate from Carnegie Mellon based in Qatar. GPA: 3.1 , GRE: Q: 170, V: 168. I have 2 years work experience setting up and managing Carnegie Mellon Qatar's SMARTLab with the Associate dean, a lab aimed at encouraging crossovers between computer science and other disciplines. I have little research experience, but I have been working with a Computational Finance professor at CMU on using deep learning to create a market making algorithm for the Qatar Stock Exchange (however, no publications). I do have an entrepreneurial streak and was involved in a couple of failed startups
