  1. Background: International student with a background in engineering and economics. I have a PhD offer from the University of Michigan's School of Information. The program looks good with a lot of interdisciplinary research. But, the Econ side of things doesn't seem to be as prominent as CS, HCI or stats within the department. On the other hand, I have PhD offers in Econ from UC-Davis, Ohio State, Iowa State and Arizona State. These are good econ program but don't have the prestige or the name recognition of UMich. After my PhD, I am equally open to an academic job or a research role in a big tech company. Please help me out with this decision.
  2. Hi all! I am pursuing a PhD in applied linguistics and have narrowed down my choices to the University of Maryland and Iowa State, but I'm now stuck between these two. My research interests involve applying pedagogy to computer-assisted language learning (CALL) programs and developing actually useful online language-learning platforms. Also, vocabulary acquisition. UMD has a smaller department with fewer professors, but they're all very experienced and respected in the field. From the students I've talked to, there are some differences in their availability but overall are still eager to work with their students. There are a lot more opportunities for work and connections in the area by virtue of location, but the department is very cognitively-focused. The research and courses there on pedagogy, assessment, and cognitive processes are still relevant to my research, but I would have to make my own opportunities to apply this to online contexts and learn about issues related to CALL. Other considerations for me: closer to my immediate and extended family, more expensive and perhaps not as nice an area, no guarantee of getting to teach a class. Iowa State has a slightly larger department but perhaps not as well-known. The program is very technology-focused, and while there aren't many courses available on the pedagogy side, I'd have a lot of support for CALL, and some of the professors and students are also doing research on learning materials. The area is a bit nicer and less expensive, but there are probably fewer opportunities in the immediate area and it's much further from my family. My graduate assistantship is specifically a TAship, so I'll definitely be teaching. Considering the differences in cost of living, the stipend is about the same (perhaps a little more generous at Iowa State). I don't really have any doubts that I could do the research I want at UMD, but I am worried about the lack of support for CALL, since that's a broad enough field that Iowa State has a whole program for it. There are definitely things that I don't have much experience in (like natural language processing), that I imagine it would be helpful to have advisors with experience in. However, at UMD I'd have the advantage of bringing in other considerations, like pedagogy and cognition. On the other hand, Iowa State is a bit more tailored to my specific interests. I'd fit right in at Iowa State... but I also don't think I'd stand out. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Hello guys, I just got accepted to MS Statistics program at Iowa State. I haven't made my final decision yet, but I'm most likely going to ISU this fall. Is anyone else going...or is already going? Let me know!
  4. Last week I contacted the graduate coordinator of my dream college to know the status of my PhD application. But she said that they have made offers and need to wait until they hear back from most of them before they could consider additional offers. At this time, they have not made a final decision on my application. What does that mean? Am i waitlisted or ????Someone pls reply.
