  1. I'm a fourth year ChemE student at an engineering college in India. I've applied to pursue M.S in ChemE in the US and received admits from Cornell, UMich, CMU and Northwestern. All this while, I was dead sure I was going to go to UMich, simply because I felt it was a really selective program and I loved the fact that you could do interdisciplinary projects that were funded by industrial partners. A couple of weeks later, I heard from Cornell University, which was initially the place I really wanted to go because of the research, before applying for the unis. UMich was quite an ambitious college. Most of the professors who I talk to, they all recommend Cornell because they're very aware of its prestige. I'm aware that the job situation is grim for international students in Chemical Engineering. Could you please advise which university would be better for me?

    Cornell CIPA MPA 2018

    I have been browsing the forums for some time now but haven't found any applicants to Cornell CIPA 2018. Has anyone heard from CIPA, or does anyone have an idea of what their timeline is this year? I submitted my application January 15 and I am waiting since then
  3. Hi, I've been seeing some posts on the survey page of people getting interviews for the Fall 2018 PhD program. I couldn't establish a pattern looking at last year's posts so I thought I'd post here. Are interviews a definitive step or do people get accepted without interviews? Do people get rejected out of interviews? The program's info on the site does not mention interviews at all but a lot of people seem to go through one. Hope someone can bring some insight. Thanks!
  4. So, the title pretty much sums it up. I got into the M.Eng. in Computer Science program at Cornell and was offered a scholarship for exactly half of the tuition cost. All in all, I'd graduate in a year with $38,000 in loans, including from my undergrad. Tonight I got into the M.S. in Data Analytics program at Fordham, and they're offering over $63,000 in a scholarship that covers full tuition, health insurance, and a $23,000 stipend. When I was originally applying to graduate programs, I intended on going into Data Science, but now that I got into the Comp Sci program, I'm heavily leaning toward going into software engineering (I've always wanted to, but thought I would've had to have majored in Computer Science as an undergrad). On the one hand I feel like Cornell is the obvious choice, but on the other hand I feel like the financial aid package at Fordham is the obvious choice. Any input? Thank you.

    Cornell MMH Round 2

    Hi, is there anyone out here who applied for Cornell's MMH program for Round 2? I am wondering if you have received a decision yet..
  6. Hello Everyone! I have an offer from Cornell for their MPS program (One-year program contains IT area and social system area), an offer from Tufts for their MS CS program and an offer from UMass for their MS CS. My undergraduate major is biostatistics so I don' t have a solid background of computer science. I plan to be a software development engineer after graduate. Cornell is pretigious but I am afraid of one-year is too short to be ready for the job hunting. UMass campus is rural but their CS program is highly-ranked. Tufts has good location and good reputation but I am not sure if it has a good CS program. Does anyone know something about these programs? Thanks for sharing your advice!
  7. What should one do? Pay $50,000 tuition at an ivy league university, or pay $0 - $10,000 at some other university (say any US university with QS world ranking below 250)

    Cornell 2018

    Hello! Anybody else considering going to Cornell in the spring or fall? I might be starting a PhD in Development Sociology there, which is housed in the public part of Cornell. Did anybody else know that Cornell is part-private, part-public? Here's some info on its public, "contract colleges" : https://www.sucf.suny.edu/project/mcp/cornell.pdf.

    Cornell CIPA 2018

    I'm starting this thread to connect with other applicants to Cornell CIPA 2018.
  10. Is it a no-brainer (MIT) or am I mistaken? What would you do?
  11. Hello all! Negotiating offers for a PhD in Chemical Engineering between Amherst, Georgia Tech, Cornell, Michigan, and UT Austin. Cornell's offer has proven to be most financially competitive, yet all are within the same stipend ball park. Interested in biological research, primarily regarding cellular engineering. Little bit about me: first gen college student, female, first gen US citizen (originally from Moscow, Russia), currently at Northeastern University and completed my elementary through high school education in NJ. Also, I'm a total work horse and prefer a heavily shifted work:life balance. Currently 21 years old, looking to complete my PhD by 25 in order to kick start my career then! Let me know your opinions!
  12. Hey everyone, I’m new to the forum so apologies if this thread is in the wrong section. I’m currently applying to the following schools and just wondered if any of you have also applied to any of these programs, and if so, have you heard anything back yet? Or if any of you have previously applied, what time-frame did you receive your answers by? As of right now, my primary concern is for Princeton, Yale, and Cornell. I’ve read a lot of theories on whether or not hearing anything by late February is a good sign or a bad sign— but I’m not sure if these theories hold any water. I’ve only heard back from NYU so far. Princeton: PhD Phil - Logic & Phil of Sci track Yale: PhD Phil Cornell: PhD Phil Columbia: MA Phil NYU: MBE (Masters of Bioethics) - Accepted with Scholarship on Feb 15th UPenn: MBE Johns Hopkins: MBE Stony Brook: MA Med Humanities, Compassionate Care, and Bioethics Temple: Dual MA Phil/ MA Urban Bioethics
  13. Hey Guys, Just wanted to get opinions from someone about both of these universities for MS&E. Supposing I have found faculty I would love to work with in both of the universities, which one would be the better choice? In terms of facilities, connectivity, etc? Any advice would be really useful.
  14. So I'm waiting it out and getting a little anxious so I scraped data from the grad cafe website and found: Average wait time between interviews and earliest reported decision (18.8 Days) Average date of earliest decision notification (Feb 17th) Average day of week of earliest notification (Wednesday) You can check it out here: https://goo.gl/JgjACc Also, Cornell reports on their admission statistics and you can see that data here: https://goo.gl/RF4kFt Happy waiting!
  15. Hey all, I'm currently wrapping up my last application of the cycle (Glad to almost be done!) and it's for Cornell's program. Part of the application asks whether I'd like to be considered for a diversity fellowship. The prompt is pretty straightforward but other than the prompt itself there is no other information provided. Is anyone else submitting a diversity essay, and if so how long is/was it? Thanks for the help!

    MPA/MPP vs MSc Econ

    Hey guys, I cannot seem to decide which Masters would be best suited to me. About me :- An Economics Graduate of LUMS (Lahore University of Management Sciences), Lahore, Pakistan. GPA :- 3.2 Work Experience :- 11 Months so far Job :- External Consultant to University of Oxford. Past Experience :- Finance Intern at Standard Chartered Bank Pakistan Head office and Analyst at Federal Ministry of Planning, Development and Reform (Worked directly under the Federal Minister of Planning and Development) - placed via USAID. Currently working on an IPA (Innovations for poverty actions) funded joint project of University of Oxford and LUMS. The supervisor being Simon Quinn and Meki, Associate Professor at Oxford and PhD candidate at Oxford respectively. It is an RCT designed to test the new financial product. Interests :- *Primarily Interested in International Economics, Business, Geopolitics, Mega-Infrastructure Projects and to some extent Philosophy.*I *Ideal career as envisioned :- In 10 years, the ideal version of me should be travelling around the globe advising the Governments of China, Kenya and Ukraine to set up Special Economic Zones in Urumqi, build a railway network to increase Intra-regional connectivity, set up a trade policy and formulate or lead development of industrial estates in Eastern Ukraine to neutralize the secessionist movements. *At the same time, I would want to work on projects such as formulating a comprehensive strategy for AirAsia’s Expansion into the Brazilian Market, Design the route of Shell’s oil and gas pipeline in Kazakhstan from its oil/gas fields to the port of Aktau on the Caspian. *Despite the average GPA (mainly due to mathematics courses, I have always topped every group project and did most of the work/took initiative) *Marketing Models – Most of the work was done by me and ! Got the highest in project (Demand Forecasting using Marketing Engineering for Excel), same goes with Principles of Finance (Indus Motor’s expansion), Intermediate Finance ( Pakistan Shipping Corp Valuation), Options, Swaps and Derivatives (Designing of Shorting Strategies for Unilever and Air Canada) and more recently, was applauded for the best project ever by the instructor in ACF (Advanced Corporate Finance) - The merger of BG and Shell’s valuation using SPSS/Advanced Excel and STATA. The issue that I am facing is I can't seem to decide which Masters Degree will end up opening the aforementioned options for me. I have considered Fletcher's MIB but it is more inclined towards Management or Corporate Firms and Social Development rather than my interests. Have looked at SIPA/SAIS/WWS as well as but I am really not sure. Not getting the feeling that THIS IS THE ONE FOR ME ! Any insight would be highly appreciated. Thank you.
  17. I thought the waiting period was the most torturing, it turned out the decision time is no less tougher. I'm having a tough time deciding between SAIS (International Development - IDEV) and Cornell's CIPA (MPA - International Development/ Social Policy concentration). I'm actually accepted into SIPA (MPA) as well but without any funding offer, so this makes it impossible to me to even consider SIPA as a choice. I am, therefore, down to these two-- CIPA and SAIS. They offer me equally generous fundings so money is not the deciding factor here. I know SAIS seems like an obvious choice as its reputation in this field is almost second to none. It's also located in DC while I'll be rather far removed from action if I choose to go to Cornell. In short, here are my personal pros/cons of these two programs: SAIS Pros: - Well-regarded in the field. - Well-structured program (IDEV) with rigorous quantitative focus. - Good networking/internship opportunities in DC. - Strong alumni network-- the SAIS alums in my country just organized a welcoming event for the admitted students a week ago. SAIS alumni relations coordinated and made this happen in different countries around the world. I was really impressed. There were A LOT of alums turning up and they seemed to really have been keeping very well in touch. SAIS Cons: - Johns Hopkins is not as well known as Cornell in my country (I'm an international student on a Fulbright fellowship; I have to come back to work in my country for around 2 years after graduation). - As my undergraduate major was English, I have a very weak economics background and will be required to take online Principles to Economics course + Intermediate Microeconomics pre-term before the semester starts. I need to pass B- for both courses to be able to officially join IDEV. I know that I'm going to be putting my best effort in completing these two courses, but what if something happens and I don't get a B- plus? Would appreciate some insights from any SAIS students/alums here. - Very few courses on education development is offered. (I plan to focus on education development as my policy specialization). - No campus life. (But maybe DC can be my campus in this case? lol) CIPA Pros: - The MPA program at CIPA is unique in that it offers high flexibility to self-customize my own study experience. This means I can take courses across colleges and schools in Cornell to make sure I get the skills in the area I need. And of course, more courses on education are offered. - Beautiful campus; access to resources of the university. - I do not have to fulfill any additional requirements before matriculation. CIPA Cons: - Ithaca is beautiful but it's so far removed from action and this can affect internship/networking opportunities. I also consider myself a city girl-- not in terms of partying or nightlife--but I very much enjoy the city life. So I'm not sure if Ithaca would be too secluded in this case. - The program is less known in the field. - Too much flexibility in course selection can be a problem as well. - I only know/heard of a few alums in my country so far. Thank you for reading this until here. It's longer than I expected but I just wanted to make sure my predicament is clear enough for you guys to give me some useful advice.
  18. Dear friends, I am stuck in a MAJOR dilemma and my life has been majorly messed up because of it. I would appreciate some responses urgently, as I have to make a decision as soon as possible. So I am a Pakistani student with a passion for policy and development, but still confused about what to specialize in. I completed my undergrad in June 2016 and have worked in an NGO in agriculture since (1 year). I applied to Cornell CIPA in Jan, 2017 and got in with a 40% tuition reduction. Because CIPA's base tuition is $34k, my per year tuition is $20k (which is very little compared to competing programs, I think). But I can also defer my offer (the 40% reduction will not be deferred and I will compete with next year's batch for it) and get 1 year of more work experience before coming. The problem is that I am coming to USA exclusively to get a job there, and getting a job in Trump's America for a south asian with a very Muslim name is near impossible, I've heard. Especially considering all the paperwork employers have to do to sponsor my H1B. So I was advised by some people that I should get more work experience before coming, since I only get one shot at this, and employers value more work experience. But the risk is that I don't get this much financial aid from CIPA next year (no one knows how funding will change by next year due to the political situation in US), and some people advised me not to take the risk as I can't afford to come without aid. The upside is that I can get the chance apply to competing programs as well next year. But my GPA is pretty bad (I've given my profile at the end). Am I competitive for HKS with funding/WWS/UChicago with funding, if I improve my GRE score?? Basically I can't afford to come without funding and Cornell seems to be among the few in financial range (I heard Uchicago and WWS give good aid) Also, I'm concerned about Ithaca's distance from major cities. Being in Boston, NYC and DC to me seems very important for a policy program. Is this a valid concern? What are your thoughts about CIPA? Can someone offer me some advise? Is CIPA's offer worth deferring and the award worth passing over for a more work experience and a chance at UChicago/HKS/Princeton next year? Or should I come to CIPA with my 1 year of work experience? My profile: GPA: 3.04, LUMS BSc Management Science (less emphasis on economics but more on business and quantitative skills, such as statistical modelling, R, data mining, BI, etc.) GRE: v162, q156, w5 WE: 1 year full-time at an NGO as a research and strategy associate, where I interacted and worked with government, farmers, corporations, consultants. 2 years part-time running and managing a small, subsidized school for poor children

    Cornell 2017

    Hello potential Cornell Grads! I was accepted to their Chemistry PhD program on Christmas Eve! It was my top choice and I'm stoked! Anyone else attending the group visit on Feb. 24th? Also, general thoughts on whether you'll accept? I got into 4 other schools, the other top choice being UCSB. My focus is organic and polymers. Congrats to those also accepted!
  20. I have narrowed the schools I have received offers from down to these three. I was wondering what your guys opinions are on the resulting job opportunities and overall benefits of each program, considering that I am 90% sure that I do not plan on pursuing a PhD in EE. My main concern is with UIUC. The relatively new program is all coursework, and I would like to know exactly how good this program is, especially from someone who knows something more about the program.
  21. Hi all, I have been selected in the Physics grad programs at UIUC and Cornell. My field is experimental condensed matter physics. I am having a hard time deciding between the two. UIUC has a big department with lot of potential PI's and is ranked higher, but Cornell is more reputed and has 2 people (big shots) with whom I would like to work with. I have heard the climate is more or less similar. Any help/suggestion will be appreciated! Thank You!

  23. I'm currently deciding between Penn State MAS program and the Cornell MPS program. Both will be a one year program because I did my undergrad at PSU. As a current Penn State undergraduate I'm leaning towards the staying here because I'm familiar with the area, the professors, have a job, research hook ups, ect However, I know Cornell has very good name recognition. My main goal is to go straight into industry. I looked over the post graduate survey for Cornell and was unimpressed with the average salary (70k) seeing as a few months ago I turned down a 63k a year job hoping to get accepted into graduate school. I'm not aware of any Penn State version of post graduate survey. The price tag is about 22k for Penn State and Cornell is 52k in tuition alone. I could probably afford Cornell without too many loans (coming out of undergrad I have no loans) but I feel that the average starting salary should be higher to justify the double price tag. I'm wondering if anyone has any insight into which program could be better for me. I'm an American and I know most of Cornell MPS students are chinese internationals so I'm wondering if that's bring the average salary down significantly and that for a domestic student, the salary prospects are much better. Thanks in advance for any help.
  24. Hi, I have been accepted by the following graduate programs: Columbia Stats, Cornell Applied Stats, and Brown Biostats. I have read carefully about each program on their official websites but I still cannot make a decision. So I sincerely want some advice. Are you willing to help? Thank you very much!
  25. Hi, I have 4 admits and I am highly confused as to what should I choose, 1. Gatech - MS ECE 2. UT Austin - MS ECE: ICS track 3. UCSD - MS ECE : ECS track 4. Cornell - M.Eng. ECE My interests are in VLSI design(preferably digital) and Computer architecture. I have not received any funding with my invite. RAship and TAship may be a possibility, but nothing currently. Can some current/past students list out the merits and demerits of each program and school and also what are the job prospects after completion of the courses. TIA
