  1. Hi Everyone, I just wanted to start a forum on those waiting for admission to Fall 2018 University of Michigan School of Information Master's program! Here is a space for you to discuss your worries, get information from others applying, and ask about acceptances/denials. We're all in the same boat! UMSI '18!!
  2. Hey guys Has anyone heard back from SJSU HFE yet? or from UCI MHCID?

    CMU MHCI vs UW MHCI+D

    Hey guys! I just got accepted into CMU's MHCI program and am so happy. I'm just waiting on University of Washington MHCI+D's decision. If I get rejected from UW, I'm going to CMU. However, if I get accepted to UW, I'll have to make a decision. I might be jumping the gun here, but I want to get some outside thoughts and give myself enough time to think. I'm leaning towards CMU because it seems to be slightly better overall. Is there any reason that someone should take UW over CMU? UW is a fair bit cheaper, and it's located in Seattle where it will be easier to transition into a job afterward (but I don't think job placement is an issue with CMU). I know that CMU is focused a little more on theory, but they still have the capstone project to help build a portfolio. If anyone is also making a similar decision please share your thoughts! Any insights to the program beyond what's on the websites would be really helpful. Thank you!
  4. Has anyone else applied to/heard back from Pratt's new IXD program?

    Technology innovation education harvard

    How good is Harvard’s technology innovation education program and how does it compare to other programs? Also what are similar programs?
  7. Anyone applied to CMU METALS (Master of Educational Technology and Applied Learning Science)? I applied to the METALS program but has not heard from it yet, nor is there any visit on my portfolio. One can only wait.
  8. Currently reanalyzing every second of a recent online (Zoom) interview I had with a top tier Human-Computer Interaction school. The thing I'm internally deliberating is whether or not I should have worn a suit for this online interview. I dressed business casual (clean white button up with sweater on top, and nice glasses, clean cut appearance etc.). For context, this program is considered more of a professional preparation program rather than an academic focus (yet being at the school it is, academic play a major role). Also, I'm a male. I've just been accepted into a very well known HCI school, so my anxiety has subsided a bit. What are your opinions on dress code for online interviews?
  9. Hi all, I'm revising my SoP for grad programs in Human-Computer Interaction and would be extremely grateful to get any feedback/criticism before submitting. Is there anyone in this field (or related fields) who may be willing to help? More than happy to swap/review other statements- even if in different areas. Thanks in advance! Danielle

    MS in UX/ HCI 2019

    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.
  11. Hello! I am a Junior student planning to pursue a Ph.D. in USA. UW is really my top 1 dream school. I know it's very hard to get into UW Ph.D. program. So I really wish to know my odds given my background. Thanks in advance! Undergrad: Zhejiang University, China (top 2 in computer science) Major: Honors college of Computer Science GPA: Overall 3.87/4.0, major GPA 3.95/4.0, ranking top 5% TOEFL: 107 (R24 L27 S26 W30) Letters of Rec: I will have a rec letter from a prof at Zhejiang University (my mentor, strongly rec), a prof at UC Davis (visualization&HCI research), and a prof at Cornell (HCI research, UW Ph.D. alumni) GRE: Plan to take soon, expect result: V158 Q170 AW4 Research Experience: 1. 2 HCI research experiences at Zhejiang University with HKUST for 1 year, plan to submit a paper to MobileHCI'19, but the result will not come out before 15th Dec. 2. HCI&Visualization summer research at UC Davis VIDI Lab for 3 months, will submit a paper to PacificVis'19 (visualization conference), second author. 3. HCI&Accessibility research at Cornell for 3 months. Have published a demo paper on ASSETS'18 (accessibility top conference), and will submit a paper to CHI'19 Work Experiences: 1. Teaching Assistant for a distinguished professor from UT-Austin, member of the USA National Academy of Engineering 2. Internship at Alibaba group, designed some intelligent interactive system for data analysis. Awards: First class scholarship every year in college, and many other less important awards. To summarize, I think my academic record is not very bad, my English has met their request, and I will have (if I am very lucky) 2-4 papers published on top & 1st tier conferences. I also have TA experience for a famous professor and a rec letter from a professor who is UW alumni. Given my background, do I stand a chance to be admitted to their CSE Ph.D. program? I really like the school because they have several professors who are doing research I am really interested in and my previous work matches theirs. I also got 3 Email feedback from UW professors. They all said that they are recruiting, and they appreciate my experiences. They also highly encourage me to apply for their Ph.D. program, but they have a committee to review all applications so that's the reason I come here for help. I cannot simply ask professors about my odds. Thanks for your comment!
  12. I applied to a few schools in early January and was accepted to my reach school and accepted an offer. I just got an interview invite for one if the applications today and I'm wondering what I should do. Should I just do the interview and see what they have to say? I'm worried that of it goes well I'll get an offer and at this point I don't see myself really taking it over the first program. Any advice welcome

    RIT vs UMBC for MS in HCI

    Hi Friends, I've got admits in University of Maryland, Baltimore County (MS in Human Centred Computing) RIT (MS in Human Computer Interaction) Can you people please help me decide which college to choose, considering all the factors like research, faculty, future prospects, college reputation (if it matters at all) and security index. Also, please mention the reasons you think one is better that other. PS: Even with the scholarship at RIT, it costs at least $20,000 more than UMBC. So, is it worth to spend those extra dollars?

    MSHCI at Gatech - waitlist?

    Is there anyone here who has applied to MSHCI at Gatech and whose Status still says "To Dept For Review". Plenty of people have already got admits and rejects in the past few weeks but mine is still under review. I contacted the HCI dept through the Contact form and got no response. Anyone else in a similar position?
  15. Hello, GradCafe, I have 5 (holy moly) offers from various HCI (Human-Centered Computing, Information Science) programs around the country. I would love some feedback on making the decision. I love the cohort and students at each, so culture is not a huge factor for me. Although I am leaning towards two schools, in particular, I will post my top 3 and the situation at each: UC Irvine (Informatics): When I applied initially, this was my top choice. However, I was not paired to be advised by the faculty I had applied to work with, and was assigned to a new junior faculty member who has not published much in the HCI space (ACM conferences and such). He seems very excited to work with me, but I am a bit nervous about establishing connections in the field and gaining internship and career help because this faculty member is very new and not well known. I have reached out a bit to other people I wished to work with and they are currently at capacity or on sabbatical. I also love the weather and the housing situation is great there, though the city of Irvine is stale. UC Boulder (Information Science): I am paired with faculty who have very close research interests in mind and we seem to click really well. The program itself is junior, only 2 years old, but the two faculty are founding members and are well-known in the field. There are also some HCI heavy weights who are in the program already. I loved CU Boulder when I visited, because of the climate, proximity to both nature and Denver, and walkablility to restaurants. I am mostly nervous that there have been no PhD graduates yet, thus no internship or job data. Boulder's housing situation seems to be the most problematic of all the schools. University of Michigan (Information): One of my faculty pairs in particular is a great research match and has ideas for my project I would love to do. There is another faculty member I am not paired with but really like as well. The funding package is also amazing here. Faculty also great really great research and job connections as it is an old program with a great track record. I like the walkability of Ann Arbor, as well. The only major downside is the weather and location. It is pretty far from the bigger cities and real nature (plus, it's flat). The snow in the winter is the worst part, though. And my partner has expressed really not wanting to move north. I would love some insight from everyone here on these decisions. Thanks so much!
  16. Anybody here applied for Stanford MS in Engg Design Impact Program? Please reply, have few queries if they took interviews for selected candidates.

    CMU or Harvard?

    Here are my top choices so far: Harvard: -MDes (Technology) Carnegie Mellon University: -MDes -MS in Computational Design (partial scholarship) -MHCI Going to Harvard and taking classes at MIT (especially the Media Lab) would be a dream. I just cannot figure out where Harvard MDes will take me professionally. CMU is very transparent about the graduates' career statistics. CMU students seem to be doing well professionally and financially. Does anyone know how well Harvard MDes grads transition to industry? Also, one of my goals is to learn as much CS as possible during grad school. Also admitted to: Columbia University: MArch Rice University: MArch (full ride) TU Delft: Design for Interaction Georgia Tech: Master of Science in Architecture (Digital Design and Fabrication)

    UW MHCID 2017 Applicants

    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
  19. So I'm waiting it out and getting a little anxious so I scraped data from the grad cafe website and found: Average wait time between interviews and earliest reported decision (18.8 Days) Average date of earliest decision notification (Feb 17th) Average day of week of earliest notification (Wednesday) You can check it out here: https://goo.gl/JgjACc Also, Cornell reports on their admission statistics and you can see that data here: https://goo.gl/RF4kFt Happy waiting!
  20. I'm in the process of compiling a list of schools to apply to for in a few months to start in fall 2018. I am interested more in the information science side of things and would hope to pursue a career in user experience, information architecture, hci etc with a research focus. I am interested if anyone has applied or gone to mlis programs, especially in Canada with a similar background. So far I'm looking at U of T (for sure gonna apply) UBC (interested but not sure it would fit my focus) Do any of the of mlis programs in Canada fit this description?
  21. is anyone willing to look over my sop for my app due jan 15 please? pm if interested thanks
  22. I'm applying to MS Computer Science programs this fall. Wanted some feedback on what I could consider safe and reach schools. My undergraduate degree was an unrelated field at a fairly small liberal arts school in Washington, but I've taken a lot of foundational CS coursework at my local community college (all my relevant course work has been an A and one B, but some C's from 5+ years ago that are completely outside my major at this school bring my overall GPA down). GRE Scores: GPA: My CS coursework will include Calculus 1-3, Java and C++ Programming, Discrete Math, Elementary Computer Organization and Architecture, and Data Structures and Algorithms with a a few other elective CS classes.I graduated with my BA in 2015 and have some research experience in Cognition and Learning Labs with rats and risk behavior research, but no publications. I also have a minor in Studio Art. Project-wise, I made a third person maze game for a mobile game class (group project), but don't have many other side projects. I'm involved in my community college's robotics club this year which will complete in NASA's Swarmathon in spring and I'm doing a Hackathon which I assume will give me something for a resume, but I don't have any work experience in the computer science realm and don't have any non-school related solo projects. I am a tutor this year in my school’s CS department. I have some vague interest in Human Computer Interaction fields (knowing that my art/psychology background connects), but I don't really feel like I am familiar with all of the options to rule any thing else out. I'm also vaguely interested in AI and Data Analytics if I'm a good fit, but I'm sure there are other interesting areas I could connect with. My current school list include Georgia Tech (reach?), University of Wisconsin Madison (reach?), and University of Colorado Boulder (?). I have a lot more schools I'm researching, but I would appreciate any suggestions for schools to look at more closely if I would stand a chance of getting in or could qualify it as "safe."

    Human Computer Interaction

    I graduated with a BA in Psychology in 2015. Since then I have been pivoting into Computer Science. My community college level coursework includes: Java and C++ Programming Data Structures and Algorithms Internet Programming (Javascript, CSS, HTML) Elementary Computer Organization -- currently enrolled Calculus I and II (III is planned) -- currently enrolled in II Discrete Mathematics (planned) My undergraduate GPA was 3.54. My current Comp Sci GPA is 4.0 (though is all undergraduate level). I'm a tutor this fall for the college's CS department, though I have no work/internship experience. I did do research in the cognition and learning labs for my psychology department in 2014-15. From my research into schools, I will be eligible to enroll in some MS CS programs. Given my background in psychology, I have some interest in Human Computer Interaction. Are there any schools that have particularly good programs for someone with that emphasis? Any recommendation for schools I should look into? Also should I pursue the MS CS with emphasis in HCI or should I be looking into MS HCI programs instead?

    MS in HCI Fall '18

    Hi, GRE: Verbal - 156, Quant - 167, AWA - 3.5 | TOEFL - 111 I have 2 years of relevant work experience as Research Assistant at a top ranked design institute. Co-authored a research paper in an international conference (accepted for Interact '17). Undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from top ranked university (60.2 %). I needed an extension to finish my undergraduate degree (finished in 5 years, expected time is 4 years). Also I have made a switch in my field from chemical engineering to HCI. I wish to get into a good graduate program. Some programs on my list are: MSI - UMich Ann Arbor, HCIM - U of Maryland College Park, HCI/d Indiana University, Bloomington and MS in Media Arts and Sciences - MIT Media Lab (it's too ambitious, but I still wish to apply). Which other universities in US should I apply to, which usually accept students with similar profiles? What can I do to counter my low undergraduate marks - online courses, retake GRE for higher score? Is there a possibility of getting into a PhD. program directly, in a moderate university?
