  1. Hello everyone. I have been accepted to two really great physics schools for my Ph.D. - MIT and Princeton. However, the admission to MIT is through the EECS department’s applied physics route while Princeton is just traditional physics (I also applied to MIT’s physics program but have not heard back from them. Considering all the acceptances that were sent out on Friday, I will assume that I have been rejected). My area of focus at the current moment is experimental condensed matter (CME) and quantum computing (QC). In this respect, MIT is stronger, but I am anxious about how the dec
  2. Hi everyone,I shortlisted the schools down to UIUC and CMU but can't decide on which to attend. My future plans is to stay in academia with postdocs at top schools (perhaps at MIT or Stanford) but I don't want closed doors to the industry. Here are the good vs bad things about both of these schoolsUIUCGood: The PI is highly reputed very famous in contro&gamel theory. The school is also ranked higher in ECE (US News). Very strong faculty members. In addition, I will be working on multi-agent reinforcement learning which I am quite interested in.Bad: I am not quite sure if this would be a cr
  3. I was wait-listed by MIT EECS and accepted to UCLA ECE with generous funding this year. When I applied, my bachelor's degree was not complete and my GPA increased significantly after the last semester to be near-perfect. One of my papers was also accepted after the application deadline to a very good journal. So I feel that if I continue doing good research, I'll have a generous chance of getting to MIT next year. The problem is: does the prestige of MIT matter so much that it makes sense to hold out another year? I know that I could do more or less the same quality research at both place
  4. Hi Y'all Looking at the lack of dedicated threads for EE/ECE and Computer Engineering students/prospective-grads to share their admits/applications/interviews information, I wanted to create a separate topic for it in which all of us prospective grad students can contribute, share our admit/interview experiences for the benefit of all. This would get a dialogue started where hopefully all of us can learn and contribute something.
  5. Hi guys. I'm just curious. Did anyone applying to Masters in EE Stanford get interviewed yet?
  6. Is there anyone who got interviews from POIs? I saw plenty of interview postings last year, but not nowadays... Does the interview indicate admission for UCB? (I mean being interviewed = high possibility of admission) Also, when will the results come out?? It's really painful to wait
  7. Hi everybody! I am planning on pursuing MS degree in EE with the concentration on RFIC. My chance of getting into UIUC EEMS is high because of some department policy. But I want to try different university for graduate study (due to personal issues). I performed pretty bad in GRE writing but I heard for engineering field, the writing is not that important so I will still use the current GRE score in my application. Lack of publication and research experience are also my weaknesses. Major: EE from UIUCGPA in Major: 3.85 / 4Overall GPA: 3.93 / 4Type of Student: International male,
  8. Hi all I have been offered admission to Electrical Engineering PhD at UW Madison but haven't heard anything about funding. Have tried contacting professors but no luck. The department has yet to give their final word (they said next week). I am an international student and want to know if anyone is in the same boat. Really want to attend but funding is an issue for me. How common is it for them to admit PhDs without funding?
  9. I got an admission for MS in Electrical Engineering programs from UCLA, UIUC and UT Austin. I am not sure which one should I go for. I am interested in VLSI circuits and systems. I want this decision to be made considering the following factors: 1. Reputation of school in the field of electrical engineering 2. Future job prospects 3. Quality and level of research and professors 4. Financial aid easiness in the university 5. University's inclination to Electrical Engineering, especially VLSI, Power Electronics and machine learning (and the extent of inter disciplinary e
  10. Hello, I am electrical engineering major and My GPA is 2.65/4.0 My GRE score is V:145, Q:158 AW: 3.5. I applied about 17 schools, and I already got 4 rejects... The rank of schools varies from top 20 to top 100. Could you recommend any schools that I could get an acceptance letter possibly? Thank you.
  11. Hello everyone. Hope this get answered. I was accepted to both UC Davis and the university of Washington for an M.S. in electrical engineering. I am an international student, and till now I didn't receive any words regarding funding. I am interested in communication and signal processing fields, mainly wireless communications' structure. At first, I was leaning towards the university of Washington, but reading more about each university's research and labs made me hesitant. From what I read, UW communication research field is not as robust as UC Davis, and by that I mean UC Da
  12. Hi all, I'm an international student and I've been offered a GRA Funding of 18k CAD/year from my potential MSc supervisor in UBC (from which I'll pay around 5K CAD/year for tuition and leaving 13K CAD/year for living expenses). Is it below average compared to GRA fundings in the ECE department in UBC ? Is it enough for my living expenses in Vancouver ? Thanks
  13. I currently am graduating with a B.S. in Computational and applied mathematics. I concentrated in statistics and have a minor in it, but am only also a class different from a Statistics B.S. as well. I took a class in mathematics of large data and it concentrated in Laplace and Fourier transformations of data, such as signals within pictures, voice and speaker recognition, and wavelets JPEG. I absolutely loved it. I was wondering what I should do now? I have heard that mathematicians can go to grad school for electrical engineering and not be behind if they are going to focus on signal
  14. Should I explain average GRE, or why my average GRE maths scores are not indicative of my mathematical ability? Also would tutoring experience be something to include? Applying for PhD in Electrical Engineering for reference.
  15. I am worried about my application, due to my low GRE scores. I have retaken the test 3 times with little increases, and don't think I have the mental capacity to try again before fall 2018 apps are due. My current profile is: Undergrad GPA 3.86, honors from University of Washington, Bothell Electrical Engineering GRE take 2 152 V, 155 Q, 4 AWA take 3 148 V, 157 Q, 4 AWA Research: 2 recent conference proceedings, a journal publication (2nd author) and research scholarship during undergrad. Good LOR's from undergrad research adivser, current research advi
  16. Hello, Ive received admits for MS in electrical enginerring fro Univ of California Irvine (UCI) for fall '17 and Univ of Southern California (USC) for spring '18. Which one should i opt for? ( state reason if possible, it will be really helpful) Does the university ranking of these two have an impact on future job prospects as well?
  17. Hello, I am a Sophomore (Junior in few days) in electrical engineering and was wondering if it would be too late for a shot at getting into top tier masters/PhD programs. I just recently became interested in graduate school and it is too late to apply for summer research and even my college's year round research program for '17-'18. Next year I will begin REU and other research applications early and hope to gain some then, but would that be enough to get into top programs? I will have a 3.95+ gpa after this semester so I don't think grades will hold me back at all. I'm looking at elite school
  18. Hello everybody! I applied for a specific position with deadline in the 10th of January. Since then I haven't heard back, I sent an email during February and they told me that it will take some more time. Has anyone heard back from KTH or knows from previous experience the decision timeline approximately? Thank you in advance.
  19. It's April 7th and I still haven't heard from UCLA. Is anyone on the same boat?
  20. Hey everyone So i've gotten admits from University of Southern California (USC) and University of Wisconsin Madison (UWM) for electrical engineering. My primary focus would be on power electronics as I want to pursue my career in the electric vehicle industry. Which is a better university and why? Thanks in advance!
  21. I'd like to know if it is common for masters students in EE at the top universities in Europe to publish papers (either journal or conference papers). I'm interested specially at the following universities in the field of communications systems: ETH Zurich, Imperial College London, TU Delft, KTH and TU Munich.

  23. Hello Guys. Thanking all of you ahead for reading my posts and writing your thoughts as comments. I have been out of Grad School application scene past 5 years and need some help assessing my profile and giving me few tips and suggestion. It will be great to know how my profile stacks up against fellow applications for Top 30 EE RFIC/Analog IC/Circuits PhD Programs in US/Europe. Any University suggestion is appreciated as well. For Spring 2018/Fall 2018 session. (Critics are welcome as i need to improve, be as frank as possible) My Profile: GRE (Q 170 / V 155 / 4.0) , MS in EE w
  24. Having a hard time not focusing on anything while we all wait to hear back from schools. I think my app is weak in key areas, wondering if people think I should apply to more safety schools while there is still some time, or if anyone had recommendations. Concerned because I did not major in engineering, lowish GPA, and unknown school. Undergrad Institution: Unknown, unranked Liberal Arts school Major(s): Physics Minor(s): Math GPA in Major: 3.78/4.00 Overall GPA: 3.43/4.00 Demographics/Background: Underrepresented Minority GRE Scores: Q: 162 (82%) V: 166 (97%) W: 4.0 (
