  1. Hi! Created this thread where we can share admission decisions from Canadian universities for Master's and PhD.
  2. I am currently wait-listed for the given program. I will possibly get some acceptances oncoming weeks, that I will have to answer. Should I wait for CEU until the end of May? Is there any experience of being admitted right after the wait-list? Vielen Dank!
  3. I applied for Uottawa's Fall 2021 CS masters program (concentration in applied AI) on the 15th of January. Recently, I found out that my application status got updated to "Second Evaluation" on the 9th of this month. I wanted to ask how long this takes or if anyone finds themselves in this same situation.
  4. I've seen posts regarding PhD decision-anxiety after the April 15th decision deadline, but most posts seem to have dealt with regret/anxieties over selecting one program over another after April 15th. I made the very difficult decision of turning down a fully funded offer but am now feeling some regret. I'm wondering if it's possible to change my mind now... (And, even if the department was able and willing to make it work, would this be too much of a faux pas?) The last thing I would want is to start off on bad terms with my department and advisors. Has anyone else (either in th
  5. I am super confused between these three univs for pursuing MS in mechanical, with just a week remaining to finalize my decision it will be really helpful if someone can comment about these univs wrt following- 1. Funding. (UMich seems too expensive with little probability of Masters securing RA positions, UIUC on the other hand seems to have plenty of options) 2. Research (My area of specialization will be micro/nanosystems or MEMS, please comment on this specific research aspect for the three univs. I feel UIUC has the best research facility for micronano stuff) 3. Job Opportun
  6. With the deadline approaching, I'm very confused which one to choose. Given that Georgia is cheaper and affordable compared to Michigan, UMich is a great place to study. I somehow feel that a college town will establish more connections with the people than a city. Both places are great wrt academics and research. I am very interested in research and hope to get into RnD division after my masters. I'm particularly thinking about the job opportunities only. I have heard too many people say that any decision I take wont go wrong, so I wish someone can provide me with a little bit more insight on
  7. Decision day is right around the corner--and I can't decide between the two schools. I am interested in inorganic synthesis (had been researching on nanomaterials and energy conversion in undergrad research). Both schools are providing stipends, both seem to have great professors in inorganic field.. any advice/feedback about the two schools would be appreciated!
  8. Hello! I have narrowed my list down to these two schools and I am trying to make the decision and would love an outside perspective! Wisconsin Madison: Pros: *Tons of labs that interest me, including a relatively famous PI who has shown interest in me *a location that really appeals to me (though I have never been) *good impression during visit days, people had good work life balance, the school seemed very supportive etc. Cons: *stipend seems a little low (even taking into account COL) especially because you have to pay student fees and health i
  9. Seeking help in deciding between these two programs. I'm coming straight out of undergrad (domestic student) as a stats major with no relevant internship experience (covid) and seeking to break into data science. Both of these programs seem to value their master's students much more than other schools (I've already decided against Columbia), while Duke might have a slight edge here due to the smaller class size. I'm fairly indifferent between the two locations, but I feel like Chicago would have more attractive job/internship opportunities locally, and a similar or better reputation nationwid
  10. Hello all, April 15 is the deadline to decide where I'll be going for my Master's in Stats! I'm posting here to get a better idea of where I should go. Here are my options: UChicago, Duke, UNC-Chapel Hill, UW-Madison, and ETH Zurich. Worth noting is that UW-Madison is free, although money isn't really a concern for me. As of now, I'd say I'm definitely leaning UChicago based on its prestige and the strength of its master's program. While I'm not that interested at the moment in pursuing a PhD following my Master's, I suppose leaving that door open can't hurt and that there's a lot of good
  11. Right now, I am choosing between the following for data science/analytics: -NYU: MS Data Science -Columbia: MS Data Science -USC: MS Applied Data Science -UChicago: MS Analytics -Northwestern: MS Analytics Having lived in the NYC area my entire life, I am leaning towards Northwestern/UChicago to try a new place. Any input specifically to which of these two programs (or any of them) might be better? I have looked extensively at both and think either would be great.
  12. So I have an offer that I received yesterday (March 3), and I need to respond back by March 9th. However, I haven't even heard back from any of the other universities I applied to, and I'm sure they'll come mid-end of March. Has anyone had this experience, and what did you do? Do you think it's acceptable I email the university that I received an offer from for an extension? And/Or do you think I can email the universities I haven't received an offer from to see if they can tell me their decision earlier?
  13. Hi, everyone! Would really appreciate any insight or advice as I struggle with my grad school decision. I got in to both of my top masters programs: Boston University School of Medicine and Penn GSE. I love both schools so much, and am really struggling to decide where to go. I like that BU's program is in their medical school and is CACREP accredited. I also really could see myself living in Boston. But then UPenn is UPenn, and I would get two masters in two years. I haven't heard much about living in Philadelphia, so that's really my only worry. If you have any advice o
  14. If I got a job offer ($55K+) in my field of interest (philanthropy) before hearing back from any/all the programs I applied to, do you think I should take the job offer instead and decline/defer grad school to apply again in future, decline the job offer and go to grad school, or try to do the grad program part-time while working? I am in the interview process for 3 organizations that I'm decently excited about. And mindful that the avg salary upon graduating from many of the programs I applied for is $50-70K anyways.. Paying for classes, exposure to professors & new network, capstone
  15. Hi every one, I am a senior applying for Biostatistics Phd program this cycle (international student, bachelor in America). So far, it has been quiet dissapointing with all rejections, and every single school I applied to admit me to its MS program. I am still waiting for Brown and Rochester, which I received inivation to their recruitment events/ interviews. Regardless, I really appreciate if every one can chime in and help me decide where to go in case I will not get in to any PhD programs. So far, I have gotten into Duke MS (with 20 000 dollars scholarship per year), Emory MSPH (i
  16. Hi everyone, I am a senior undergrad looking to go into the biotech industry. I have seen many schools offering a biotech masters degree, but am unsure which one I should be applying to because there are too many choices and variations. I have a GRE score of 330, good GPA, and 3 years of research experience, so please feel free to suggest any school you think is best for this degree! I am hoping to go into industry after this degree, in biopharma or consulting.
  17. Hi all, This month I got accepted to two master's degrees: MA in International Relations at Leiden University, with a Global Political Economy specialization, and MSc Development Studies at SOAS. I'm very happy as both interest me a lot, and are in great universities, but now I can't decide which one I should choose, and would like some help with it. At first, I was more inclined to choose SOAS, as I heard many good things about it from a friend of mine who did his Master's there. I did some research about SOAS and student life there, and I thought it would be a place where I'd real
  18. Hello everyone, I have to applied to international affairs schools and have been admitted to SAIS, Fletcher, Syracuse-Maxwell and GPS at UCSD. Academically I prefer 1) SAIS 2) Fletcher 3) Maxwell and finally UCSD, since I consider it is too far away from the cities I want to be closed to like Boston, NYC and DC. However, I am an international student from argentina and my funding options are limited. I have been granted a 54 k scholarship at SAIS, 64k at Fletcher and full tuition at Maxwell and UCSD. Enrolling in SAIS or Fletcher would imply taking student debt for at least
  19. It’s quite a hard choice for me… Let me first describe a bit about my struggle. I wanna pursue an academic career in the discipline of international relations. My main research interests include international cooperation, IR theory, IOs, and Asia-Pacific. Both schools have very significant pros and cons in my view. ANU is a leading institution in Asia-Pacific studies and very rich in academic resources. However, I tend to complete my doctoral studies (PhD) in the US. As you guy may know, ANU is a base for the English School (emphasize the value of traditional research

  21. Background: I'm still waiting to hear back from a few UCs (davis and irvine) that I applied to. I've seen cases where they don't send out offers until May. I've gotten an offer of admission from another school (deadline to accept is April 15). Question: Does anyone know whether it's possible/alright to accept the offer of admission and then change my mind if I hear back positively from those UCs? It's not an ideal situation, but I don't believe accepting an offer (especially for a master's program) is legally binding... That said, I'm not too happy with how the U
  22. Hi, I got admits for MS in Computer Science from Columbia, UT Austin and UIUC. I'm an international student and I'm mostly inclined to go for a job post MS. Can you help me decide on which program to go for? Columbia is an Ivy but looks too expensive. Others are cheaper and have decent CS programs but I'm not really sure how to compare the ROI between them. Thanks.
  23. I've had the good fortune of being accepted to two incredible programs: a PhD in Logic & Philosophy of Science, and a PhD in Cognitive Science. Both programs are at UC Irvine. I'm having an incredibly hard time choosing between them. The LPS program is really amazing, and I see it as the best intellectual/cultural fit for me. The CogSci program is great too, and I have several fantastic PIs in the department interested in taking me on as a student. I think the two programs would be very different experiences since the CogSci program is structured more like a STEM program while LPS is,
  24. I have been accepted by University of Illinois at Chicago for MA English (Creative Writing). The department does not have funding for MA students for this particular program. When I told them that I cannot pay, they said I could apply for graduate assistant jobs which could get me a partial fee waiver and stipend. But the problem is that applying for job is chance-based. Its totally possible that I might not get the job. In that case I might be stranded with near to no money. Should I accept the offer?
  25. Hello guys, So I've gotten admits to TU Delft's Msc in Sustainable Energy Technology and KU Leuven's Master of Engineering: Energy I would like to know which program is better. This is the primary difference, TU Delft's program focuses on Renewable energy generation while KU Leuven focuses on energy distribution and utilization. I have an interest in both of them. My primary intention is to get a good job. Am not interested to further do a PhD. If anyone studies in these programs or knows anyone who does, your help is deeply appreciated.
