  1. Hi, I majored in Psychology at a top university in India. My undergrad GPA is low (3.04/4.0). However, I am currently doing some PG work in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to make up for my poor gpa (and a three year undergrad degree). By the time I submit my application, I'll have work exp of about 2 years. I want to know how else can I make up for my low GPA, if I want to apply to good HCI programs? Some schools I am looking at are - GTech, UofW, UofMaryland, etc. Do I even stand a chance?
  2. Anyone else out there just apply for Fall 2020?
  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. Hey! Applications are opening and i thought it would be best to freak out together! Drop in a comment if you're applying for fall 2020, with your Uni list, background and anything else you would like to share!
  5. Hi! I'm planning on pursuing UX Design as a career and am currently making final decisions for graduate school. I'd love your inputs as every program seems to be excellent in their own ways. I'd appreciate any opinions thanks! Carnegie Mellon University - MHCI UC Berkeley - MIMS (Concentrations: HCI & UX Design) Parsons - MFA in Design and Technology

  7. Hey, I have an architecture background and switching to hci/ui ux and will apply OCT 2019. Anyone else in the same application boat? In the process of shortlisting schools currently! Would love to connect during the entire application process! Read here that Pratts program wasn't the best. Anyone else have any information about other programs in the US, Canada as well as EU? Currently considering UW, CMU, University of Michigan Ann arbor, Umea, Delft, Alto (for visual communication design)
  8. 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!!
  9. Hi, I have applied for masters in human computer interaction at Georgia tech, CMU and UW but have not heard anything from them. Did anyone of you get to hear from them..? Or any idea when the results will be out..?
  10. Hi all ! I recently was updated about a first author conference proceedings acceptance. This is about 2 months after submitting my PhD applications. Im looking for advice on this - I read somewhere that it might help to email the adcomm with an updated resume. Would emailing at this point be appropriate?
  11. Hi there - I wasn't quite sure where to post this, but "Interdisciplinary" seems like the best place. I'm a UX researcher/designer with 8 years professional experience. I want to go back to school to learn how to be a tech professional who can support tech companies in creating more ethical products and services. MIT's MS (I'm not interested in PhD) program seems like SUCH a good place to think critically about technology and how it gets made, and experiment with new solutions. I've looked at other HCI/Information/UX programs, and found that most MS programs don't seem to have the opportunities MIT does. It feels like most of the classes at other programs are tech positive and there's not space to challenge tech and look at it differently. I'm a non-academic tech worker (not a programmer though, no CS skills here) looking to contribute to a more ethical tech future. Is anyone in the same boat as me? Or in a boat nearby?
  12. Has anyone else applied to/heard back from Pratt's new IXD program?
  13. Hi, everyone! I got offers of admission from both the University of Michigan and the University of Toronto into their information studies respectively (i.e. UMSI and iSchool). I would definitely like to attend the UMSI, but unfortunately I was not awarded any financial aids.. So.. now that I have to pay approximately the 40K tuition + 20K living expenses per year to study at the University of Michigan, I am doubtful whether it is a good decision to choose the UMSI over the U of T's iSchool because the latter would cost much much less (I am a Permanent Resident in Canada, and I would move to Toronto with my family, so I wouldn't have to pay rent and plus, the tuition is much less, 13K per year) . The decision would have been much easier if I had received any awards from the U of T, but unfortunately again.. I didn't... (In fact, I expected to get some since my CGPA is 3.93/4.0 from McGill Honours' Degree..) Anyways, my ultimate plan is to work as a UX designer after graduate studies, and I would like to work in the states considering UX designers earn more there, but I would also love to stay in Canada and work here. So.. Please help me make the decision! Any help or advice would be much much appreciated!! Thank you so much and have a great day!
  14. Took the GRE two weeks ago and got the scores (Q169/V161/AW4.0). I'm a non-native English speaker. I think I could probably improve my AWA to 4.5 with enough practices, yet I doubt I could reach the same QV scores again (during mock exams my average is around 323). Just curious if this score is good & safe enough for applying HCI master programs, or is it worth it to retake the test simply for AWA's sake? Other background info: Foreign Languages and Literatures Major - 3.96/4.3 or around 3.7/4.0 GPA 2 years working experiences in digital advertising agency as project planner / product marketer Currently working on UX side projects as I have relatively few experiences in the field I have okay relationships with my professors and boss (I think lol) I am currently researching programs I am interested in and their average/required scores; Sadly, a lot of schools do not have them posted. Any advice would be great and would be much appreciated! Thanks!
  15. Hey guys Has anyone heard back from SJSU HFE yet? or from UCI MHCID?
  16. Well, the decision deadline is coming really soon but I'm still hesitating... I currently have 2 offers, one from School of Information Studies, McGill, and the other from Interactive arts and Technology, Simon Fraser University. Both have supervisors appointed. More details are listed below. A. McGill Information Studies: Supervisor: Karyn Moffatt, Canadian research chair, https://scholar.google.com.hk/citations?user=FYdnVc0AAAAJ&hl=zh-CN&oi=ao Human Computer Interaction/Accessibility/Design for Older Adults citation 968, h-index 15 Advantages: a. Well, the main advantage is, McGill is McGill... I've been there as an intern, and I love the life there. Also I suppose the reputation is better? After all it's the 1st tier school in Canada... b. It's a non thesis, project based programme, somewhere halfway between the industry and the academia. After the project I spent a whole 6 months on had a horrible clash with MSR and went unpublishable, I don't really think I want to step into the academia now... I'm always the engineer and I just enjoy the process crafting things to solve the problem, but not coming up with a question... c. Course options for cs related courses, e.g.Database, Information Retrieval, Data Mining, etc... It seems a bit easier to land in a job taking this programme. (My favourite is hardware prototyping, which is what Wolfgang wants me to do... but job chances are more limited doing what I love Disadvantages: a. Soooo little funding. I only received a 4750 CAD entering award, and nothing else. I have enough savings to pay the tuition and all living expenses, but I have to admit I felt a bit hesitant if I should really spend all my savings for the last 5 years on that... b. Karyn is the more "hands off" sort of guy. Bringing up my own ideas is not such an enjoyable process to me, so I don't think I really fit her workstyle... B. Wolfgang Stuerzlinger https://scholar.google.com.hk/citations?user=78KBaPsAAAAJ&hl=zh-CN&oi=ao 3D User Interfaces, Immersive Analytics, Virtual Reality, Human-Computer Interaction citation 5887, h index 40 Advantages: a. Ohhhhhh seriously, he's almost perfect, except for my love for McGill. Many of our ideas regarding research fits perfectly, like, either submitting to the best conference or don't submit it at all. He did have a relatively mature topic for me to work on once I start my master study, and it's about haptics, something I love but seldom have a chance to get my hands on. Also, he is, relatively speaking, a little bit pushy, which is something I think I do need (someone to be there kickin' my butt, lol b. SFU SIAT has a good reputation in HCI research... But I don't know if that, too, applies when coming to the industry. c. A scholarship of 22k CAD each year, 6k CAD of entering award, and a separate funding for the project I'm going to work on.(Whereas Karyn said, most of the students didn't do what they wrote on their research proposal in the end, so I guess she might not consider my idea to be good enough Disadvantages: Well the main problem is the reputation... Would there be situations like, McGill is in the target school list whilst SFU isn't, especially in terms of joining large corporates, i.e. Google, Microsoft, etc? Would the better supervisor overweigh the reputation gap between a tier 2 university and one of the best? Hope to hear from you guys, thx!!!
  17. 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?
  18. 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!
  19. Hi guys, I heard that GT sent out admissions on Feb.22 and Feb.26. Congradulations to those who have been admitted to this competitive program!!! I am wondering if the four tracks (IC/ID/PSY/LMC) send out admissions independently? If so, which track did you receive your admission from? Thanks & Congrats!!!
  20. How good is Harvard’s technology innovation education program and how does it compare to other programs? Also what are similar programs?
  21. 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.
  22. 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?
  23. 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
  24. 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.
