  1. Hello, I received offers from CU Boulder and NCSU in MS Electrical Engineering and now deciding what to choose. My area of interest are analog circuits, devices, RF/Microwave. Especially, I like practical side of learning, to clarify I like to create meaningful devices rather than write paper. Moreover, I expect to improve my skills in using instruments and CAD programs. Both schools seems solid in these aspects, but I was unable to find more detailed information from real engineers. Location and city are also important. I heard that Boulder prohibits expansion, so is it hard to find apartment (condo) in good condition, 1bd (or studio) with washing machine in unit ? About Raleigh I have not much information. P.S. I am still waiting answer from UCLA but chances are close to zero, so it is probably better even not to wait them because deadline is approaching.
  2. Has anyone who has applied to UC Boulder's physiology program for Fall 2019 (master's or PhD) heard back yet?
  3. I have received admits from CU Boulder and NCSU for Masters in Aerospace program. Which is the best choice amongst these two?
  4. Has anyone who was waitlisted to cu boulder heard back yet? They said they would text us (weird right) on April 15th or soon after if a spot opens up but I wonder if they’ll let us know if there’s not a spot for us...
  5. Has anyone heard back from MCD Biology at CU Boulder? I have interview with the admission committee and they said they will notify me in 1-2 weeks cause they need to interview with other top international candidates. But it's already been two weeks and I'm still waiting... Does this mean my chance of getting admitted is also getting lower? Should I send them an email and ask about the result? It's pretty annoying when you can't do anything but nonstop checking your email boxes
  6. Hello all, I am wondering if anyone received an acceptance for a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering at CU Boulder for Fall - 18? I had an interview with the POI before the prospective visit day and I was told that the decision is typically made at the end of March. Is this true? Has anyone received the offer yet?

  8. How does each of the universities fare in ML research at Masters level (please justify, that would be very helpful :)? What is the placement scenario at each of the universities? Please try to rate the universities out of 5 with 0.5 increments.
  9. Did anyone else apply to their Ph.D. (or Masters!) programs? I was invited to the "finalist weekend" yesterday and am really excited.
  10. Cross posting it from the Computer Science thread: I've got admits from University of Colorado, Boulder and University of California, Davis, both for MS CS programs. I'm interested in machine learning (and NLP, recently) and I'll probably not be pursuing a PhD after MS. From what I've found, UCD is somewhat cheaper overall and has marginally better ranking in ML but is pretty poor NLP wise whereas CU Boulder is great in NLP. Research interests line up in both schools. No funding in either, and as far as I'm aware, job opportunities are somewhat better in California than Colorado because of the tech scene. My main issue is whether a degree from UC Davis is perceived as being of "lesser" value because it has a reputation for being rather laidback? And does the UC tag by itself hold any value over CU Boulder? Do you guys have any suggestions or any other information that could help?

  12. Has anyone else applied to the Strategic Communication Design MA at CU Boulder? And have you heard anything yet? They're kind of driving me nuts. The site says since it's rolling admissions, it shouldn't take longer than 3 weeks for us to get a response, but I applied in mid-January and haven't heard anything. I emailed the program director last week and he said that he was meeting with his committee early this week to make the final decisions, so I assumed I would hear something by the end of the week, but still silence. My anxiety is through the roof right now. I hate feeling so unorganized about life plans.
  13. I've read through a few of these threads, and the common theme seems to be people who clearly (from an outsider's perspective) already know what they want coming to that realization on their own by hearing input from others. So...here I am. Possibly already decided, but certainly don't feel that way. I've been accepted to UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, Northwestern, and CU Boulder for CS PhD programs. As far as I can see, here is how things breakdown. Stipends are comparable at each school: UC Berkeley Area: I don't love NorCal (I lived in the area for ~7 years so I'm pretty familiar), but there are a TON of opportunities to get involved with startups in the area. Research fit: AWESOME, I'd work on super wacky stuff the likes of which I haven't seen at other places. I also love the prof BUT he can be EXTREMELY difficult to get in touch with. That's been a problem for me in the past - I'm independent, but I don't like to be completely abandoned. Prestige: Super high obviously. Long-term prospects: Name recognition through the roof, plus I'd likely already develop relationships with awesome industry companies. Focus: Developing new platforms. UC Santa Cruz Area: Again, NorCal, not my fave, but off in the woods seems like a better fit for me. Still plenty of great access to the startups and so forth in the area. Research fit: Also AWESOME. I'd be working with a professor who does super wacky stuff that's right up my alley. I've felt the strongest "gut fit" with this prof. Prestige: Not so great? Long-term prospects: I'd develop some strong relationships that could take me far, and doing research that I'm super interested in sounds excellent. Focus: Playful technology / user-centered design / games CU Boulder Area: My absolute favorite place by far, hands down. Living here would be a joy every day. Some tech startup activity in the area, but probably not much compared to the Bay Area. Research fit: EXCELLENT. Very interdisciplinary campus, new program ramping up (I tend to thrive in slightly chaotic environments like this as long as I'm given the power to change things). Prestige: Not so great? Long-term prospects: Craft technology / schools Northwestern Area: Chicago, big cities just aren't my thing. BUT, they do have opportunities, and I'd do work in museums, and possibly with some amazing performing groups there. Research fit: Great, I think? I'm questioning my commitment to the focus here, but until super recently I was way gung-ho about it. Prestige: Excellent. Long-term prospects: I'd build relationships with museums, since that's the main focus of the lab. Anyway, there's no clear winner here to me, at least. I...I'm not even sure what I'm asking for... I guess I'm just hoping that if I type this all out, someone will be able to hold up a mirror to what I've said and help me see my own hopes and dreams more clearly. Here's a question I guess: How does CU Boulder rank as compared with Santa Cruz or Northwestern?
  14. Has anyone else applied to the CU Boulder Geography Graduate program? I know admission decisions probably won't be out for a while but I am just so anxious to hear! Does anyone know about the time/how the geography department notifies students? From what I have seen on this site from prior years, the website doesn't seem to get updated very often and mostly you hear from email. Thank you in advance for any advice! Good luck to everyone!
