  1. I've recently been accepted to the MS HCDE at University of Washington, Seattle. I'm very confused as to should I accept the offer or wait for Georgia Tech MS HCI to roll out their decisions. Is UW better than GT or vice versa? I'm inclining towards UW because of the location but GT has a great reputation in HCI.
  2. Hello all, I recently received the great news of being accepted to Berkeley's MIMS program and the University of Washington's HCDE program. I am also waiting for some good news from the Georgia Tech HCI program. If I get into all three of the schools, I will have a hard time picking one. Therefore, I'd like to pick your brain on which school to choose: Which school is the best career-seeking wise? Which school has the highest ROI? Etc. Here are a few things about me: UX/HCI design is my primary interest I don't have a strong technical background (I studied social sciences) but I am willing to learn I am an international student, and therefore cannot work part time during the first year and may consider returning to my home country at some point, post graduation Cost is and also is not an issue. I will get some financial support from my parents but will also need student loans. Thank you in advance!
  3. Hi all, I've been looking to transition into the field of User Experience Research and Design and have been fortunate to be accepted into a large number of graduate programs for Fall 2020. I had this fear that I wouldn't get in anywhere and ended up applying to a huge mix of programs that I liked, but now I have a tough decision to make. Here are the programs I'm considering: University of Washington - HCDE University of Texas - Austin MSIS University of Michigan MSI University of Maryland HCIM University of Minnesota - Twin Cities HFE Every time I attend an admitted students day I end up liking new things about each program. I am currently leaning towards the University of Washington's HCDE program. My only reservation with HCDE is that I know the cohort is larger, mixed with full and part time students, and has mostly evening classes. I am a little worried about the social aspect and also what to do with my time during the day. I'd consider getting a job but what I'd prefer would be to complete a program quickly and get into the field, still I know Seattle is a great place to be for UX and that HCDE is the most competitive program I've been accepted into. I was doing my own research too but I was wondering if anyone had any feedback as applicants or students on any programs that I should give more consideration to or take off my list. Any information is appreciated while I try to make the best decision! Thank you
  4. Looks like most of the schools I applied to start sending out news mid-March but the wait is agonizing to say the least. I don't even know if I can be confident. This is my first time applying and I am straight out of undergrad. One can only hope.
  5. I'm having a tough time deciding between HCDE and MSI at UMich. I'm leaning towards UMich as it's a reputed uni with a very strong student community. But HCDE is amazing as well and less expensive when compared to UMSI. Is anyone in the same place as me? What are your decisions and what are the factors that you considered?
  6. Hi all, Thankfully, I have been accepted to the three programs above (UW HCDE, UMICH MSI, and UCI MHCID) and those are my top choices for HCI/Design masters programs that I have applied to. I am having difficulty deciding what school to choose. Any help or advice by anyone who has heard about or done these programs would be greatly appreciated. I currently work in Los Angeles, CA as an associate interaction designer and since UCI has a mostly online program that caters to working professionals, it helps me budget wise. I would not have to worry about moving and can still work at my current job. However, UCI (still a great school) seems to be the least known program out of the other two for HCI. UW HCDE and Michigan's MSI program seem to be really well known in the HCI world and have access to a large alumni network as well. It seems like big companies recruit at both schools quite often. Michigan's program does cost almost twice as much because of the out of state tuition however. So far I am leaning towards UW since it still in the west coast and the cost difference compared to Michigan (even though cost is not the biggest concern for me). I also feel like I am not growing too much at my current job so I am not too scared to leave it. I feel like I would prefer Seattle to Ann arbor as well but it does seem like U of Michigan has slightly more prestige. Ideally, I would like to work at a large/well known company soon after graduating (automotive industry a bonus). Those are my current thoughts but if anyone has any general insight to any of these programs or are also deciding and can give their thoughts, that would be great! Thanks in advance.
  7. Hello folks ! I'm willing to pursue MS in UX / HCI preferably in Seattle, but I don't meet the toefl requirement which is a score of 106 with 26 in Speaking. Still any chance to get in ,in either of MHCID, HCDE (UW) or MSTI (Bellevue)? I have 94 in toefl with 25 in speaking. Any suggestions will be really appreciated. Best, -Ketki.
  8. Just throwing this out there for any other UW MHCI+D applicants for 2017. As you all know, apps were due on Jan 12th so we have a little while to wait! I only applied to MHCI+D, but this could be a discussion area for applicants of similar programs (HCDE, etc) to vent/rant/discuss as well
  9. Short version: should I do into debt at my dream school, or accept a full-ride to my third choice? I was thrilled when I got into my dream program, the MHCI program at CMU. I never thought I would get in, and I feel like I won the lottery. Then today I was offered $80,000 scholarship from University of Michigan. Suddenly everything feels very real. I think CMU is a much better fit-- I want to make things, not research. I love that it is a professional program, and I like that it is smaller, and very focused curriculum. The curriculum seems perfectly tailored to my interests. Not going to lie, I also like the prestige. What I am worried about is that the economy will crash and I will find myself in debt and in a no-longer-high-in-demand profession. Not having to pay tuition would really help me get my adult life started on the right track (I am only 22, and this is my first time leaving my home town). I'm probably looking at upwards of $20k debt at CMU (I have savings and leftover Florida Prepaid to get through the first 2ish semesters). Then there is the University of Washington's HCDE program. I haven't even heard back from UW yet, but I visited last year and it was my second choice after CMU (really the first choice, since CMU was such a "reach".) If I get in, it will make this decision even harder. (UW curriculum is more my style than UM, and tuition is cheaper.) Another factor is that my husband is also moving with me, and while he is very supportive, I hate the idea of dragging him to Ann Arbor because the job prospects for him are much slimmer than in a larger city (Seattle or Pittsburgh). I don't really want to live in AA either.
  10. Hoping I'm not the only one out there waiting anxiously for an update from UW. Are there any other applicants out there for the same program? Did you apply to any other programs? Let's hope that these next couple weeks bring swift news either way.
