  1. 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!
  2. 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!!
  3. 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)
  4. Hey guys Has anyone heard back from SJSU HFE yet? or from UCI MHCID?
  5. 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!!!

    HCDE Vs UMSI MSI

    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?

    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!
  8. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  15. 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!
  16. 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?
  19. 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!
  20. 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
  23. 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!
  24. 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?
