  1. I have got master of science offer in chemical engineering program of Cornell University and UCLA. I intend to get PhD, most likely staying in the same school. Any good recommendation?
  2. Hello, I am currently a 4th year undergrad at UCLA studying materials engineering. I need to decide whether to stay at UCLA or head off to Cornell for a masters in materials engineering. I am quite sure I do not want to do a PhD and want to set myself up to be able to get a job either in aerospace/automotive or electronics/semiconductor industries in CA. I was wondering if anyone had any firsthand experiences with the Cornell M. Eng program, or if anyone had any thoughts/advice/tips? UCLA (MS) would be the easy comfortable choice to make but it would be a good opportunity to go out of my comfort zone and go to an Ivy League. I’m just hoping that Cornell will adequately prepare me and help jumpstart my career: are cornell’s internships/projects rewarding and comprehensive enough to better myself as an engineer and will it’s geographic distance from CA impact my job search? cornell is a 1 year program + maybe additional summer session and UCLA is a 3-5 quarter program which will take 1-1.5 years

  4. Which school to choose, Cornell or UT Austin for PhD in mixed signal and analog circuits?
  5. I am currently considering between these choices: - UC Berkeley Mechanical Engineering (Product Design/ Controls) [https://me.berkeley.edu/graduate/meng/] - Penn Robotics [https://www.grasp.upenn.edu/academics/masters] - Cornell Engineering Management [https://www.engmanagement.cornell.edu/em] My background is in Mechanical Engineering from a top 5 undergraduate school. Mainly hope to develop a deep specialization in robotics, controls, design for manufacturability, hardware systems development on the technical side, and take 2-3 management courses from the business school. Highly interested in technology entrepreneurship and have attended programs/ started companies previously. If any current students or prospective students can share your opinions, it would be incredibly helpful!
  6. Admitted to Cornell ECE MEng. without any funding. While waiting for decisions from other universities, I'm wondering if this program is worth its cost. I currently have a well paying job so my opportunity cost is pretty high too. How easy is it to get an internship? Is it feasible at all? Any insight you can provide is much appreciated!
  7. Hi guys, this is my first ever post, so I hope to not be doing anything wrong. I am a mechanical engineering undergraduate student from Brazil, and will be applying for graduate school in the US and in Canada for fall 2020 admission. Since the admission process is fairly different from what is done here in my country, I'm not familiar with the credentials that are considered to be good or bad for top schools (I do know, however, that the competition is fierce and sometimes even the best students don't get in), so any advice will be helpful. Here is a brief overview of my CV: Major: Mechanical Engineering Undergrad University: Top 30 in Brazil, but I don't know if it is well known internationally CGPA: 9/10 TOEFL: 110/120 GRE: Haven't taken it yet, but assume that I got stellar results Research Experience: 2 years at the Fluid Mechanics Lab (Mech Eng department), 3+ years at the Processes and Simulations Lab (Chemical Eng department), 1 year at the Renewable Energy Technology research group (Mech Eng department). PS: I participate simultaneously of these three groups. Publications: - Two as second author at an international congress (automated a device that allows for great precision in wind tunnel measurements and helped formulate a new mathematical model for blood flow). - One as second author at a national congress (had minor impact on this one, just analyzed some data and helped to write the paper). - One as second author at a respected peer-reviewed journal (submitted) (developed a new technology design that increases the energy output of hydroturbines). And, if all goes well, by the time I submit my application, I'll have 2-3 more publications (1 of these as first author) at highly regarded journals in my desired field (these publications are related to renewable energy such as hydroturbines and biomass combustion, plus a publication of experimental work that I'm currently carrying out with a masters student). Accomplishments/Awards: My CGPA may not seem so great when compared to other students, but in my department I'm ranked in the top 0.01% (yes, that's how they call it haha) of ALL students ever. Co-founded a research group with my professor. No awards. LORs: One from my long time advisor, who knows me very well and has been a huge part of my research career so far. One from other professor with whom I also conduct research and also happens to be very close. One from the department head, from when I took a graduate course in which he was the professor, and had the best grades in class. He also is my co-advisor (Got his PhD from Cornell). Extracurriculars: Part of the aerodynamics crew of a SAE aerodesign team. Was briefly part of the robotics team. Target schools: I intend to test my luck and apply to MIT, Stanford, Princeton, Cornell and University of Toronto. I know that it is impossible to say for sure if a CV is good enough or not since the admissions process is a crapshoot most of the time, but I would like to know your honest opinion based on your experiences. Thank you for your time.
  8. Hello to all, I've been ask to do a video interview as part of my application process to do an MPA at Cornell (CIPA). They said that the questions haven been pre-recorded, and that I could do it at any time. I have some questions I was hoping to answer here: 1) Have any one know what type of question could I find? 2) Does this mean anything regarding my application? Thank you a lot!
  9. Hi, Does anyone know what questions Cornell CIPA asks your recommenders? Thanks in advance.
  10. Hi, I have been invited to do a Skype interview with a professor at Cornell Tech for the M.Eng in Computer Science. I was wondering what kind of interview it will be and what kind of questions I can expect? The only information I got in the email from the admissions department was that I should be prepared to answer technical questions about my experience in computer science. What do you think they mean by that? They also mentioned that the interview will only take between 15 - 30 minutes. If anyone has some experience, then I would be grateful if you could share your advice and experience.
  11. Hi all, I’ve been lucky enough to be accepted to my top two programs, the Master of Public Administration at Cornell and the MPA- Environmental Science and Policy at Columbia. I am kind of torn as to what to do, as both programs have strengths that seem equally important for me, so I was hoping I could get some advice from a forum I have religiously stalked this entire process ? With the funding I have received, what I have saved, and living expenses factored in, Cornell is about 13k cheaper, but I would be alright paying a little more for the program from Columbia if that was a better opportunity. So while finances are important, they’re not a huge factor at this point in my decision. I’m planning on entering the field of environmental policy/management (in the public or nonprofit sector), and because Columbia’s program actually includes some environmental science I thought this might be beneficial. However, Cornell’s program seems to be more well-rounded in all aspects you’d typically expect to find in an MPA/MPP program. Columbia’s program is also only a year long, which is great for the financial aspect of things but does condense the material into a much shorter span of time, and I worry will not be as in-depth. On the flip side of the coin, I think Columbia’s degree is (obviously) more geared toward the environmental side of things and could be a good opportunity to really specialize, and the degree seems very marketable as such. As far as location of the program, I am really not a huge NYC fan- I know, it might not have seemed like the smartest decision to apply to Columbia then, but the MPA-ESP program seemed absolutely worth it to me. The only other school with this option is Harris, and that seemed was way too expensive for me. I could be ok with NYC for a year, but honestly that’s it. I visited both campuses and found Cornell and the Ithaca area to be very comfortable and much more of my ideal grad school experience, however I don’t know how much weight this should hold on my decision. Finally, although I feel like this is very superficial detail, I’m a little worried about the benefits each degree would hold to employers. By all means Columbia is traditionally a more prestigious school, but at this level is it important? Would it hold weight between these two schools? I went to a big commuter school that was somewhere from 200-300 in the rankings, and although I think I made up for it with work experience, I don’t know if this would be worthwhile grounds to choose a more prestigious school, even amongst Ivies. I really don’t think it is, but again I’m not an expert and wanted a second opinion. I don’t have that long to make my final decision, so I would really appreciate any input you guys have on either of these schools or this decision. Thank you so much in advance!

    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.
  13. Hello everyone, I am currently an undergraduate student studying History at SUNY Oneonta. My current GPA at SUNY O is 3.93, and I am working for the department chair as a research assistantship (funded work). I have worked as a research assistant for another professor, and I will be working as a teaching assistant next semester. I am also learning Russian and French, and I will be studying abroad in Saint Petersburg. Unfortunately, my academic history is hardly great outside of SUNY Oneonta. I started college when I was 16 at SUNY Delhi. I did 100 level classes with a mix of A's and B's. I started the nursing program there, and the results were poor. I obtained largely C's (some A's and B's but they were online classes). It was an associate degree, and unfortunately in the last semester I obtained two D's, which did not allow me to graduate. I guess I couldn't get my mind to enjoy the nursing like I have the history. With that said I looking for answers and advice. How do schools (PhD in history programs) view my nursing school failures? Even though the GPA is good, does SUNY O, hardly a reknown school, not make it look like a great turn around? What schools would be within my reach? Any response is greatly appreciated!
  14. 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
  15. 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?
  16. 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!
  17. Which School do you prefer? All schools guarantee full funding and similar stipend for me. If not engineering, is Cornell the best?
  18. 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.
  19. 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..
  20. 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!
  21. 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)
  22. I'm starting this thread to connect with other applicants to Cornell CIPA 2018.
  23. 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!
  24. 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
