  1. So here's the dilemma: I'm a pure math guy who's mostly interested in theoretical computer science, but also partly interested in theoretical machine learning. I've been accepted with similar funding yada yada to both UCLA and UC Irvine's CS PhD programs. The professor at UC Irvine more so matches my interests (graph theory, approximation algorithms, pure math-y stuff) and he's also highly distinguished, coming off a 15 year stint doing theory at Georgia Tech. The professor at UCLA is more engineering focused. There's a few questions I need answers to influencing my decision: How important is the prestige of a university compared to the prestige of one's research advisor when it comes to securing faculty positions? How easy is it at UCLA (or in general) to either co-advise with another department (theory) or switch entirely, and would this affect funding offers? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Hello everyone, I know these are both relatively new programs, but I was wondering if anyone had information on the MS in Business Analytics at UCSD and UCI. I just got accepted to both of these programs and am having a hard time deciding between the two. Both programs are super similar based on the information provided on the website, but I am leaning towards UCSD based on the location and reputation of the school in general. If anyone had some opinions on the programs, that would be great! edit: If there is no information on the specific program, some sort of information on graduate life at either school is also appreciated.
  3. Hey guys, i've been accepted into University of California Irvine and Northeastern University, Boston for Computer Engineering. I'm having a hard time deciding which would be a better choice.
  4. Heyy guys, anyone still waiting for UCI MSCS decision for fall 2018? My application has been in the "being reviewed" status for about a month now. Any idea what "being reviewed" means and when can I expect a decision?
  5. Is it top 10, top 20, top 30? Especially relative to places like Berkeley, MIT, Chicago. I was recently accepted to UCI's anthropology PhD program with full funding (I will research medical anthropology and STS), and I was wondering what the program's reputation is in that field, especially on the R1 academic job market? Their recent PhD's don't do *too* great at getting R1 positions, though the faculty are amazing, so I'm just curious.
  6. Hey, so I've been admitted to UBC, Texas A&M and UC, Irvine for their grad programs in chemistry. I'm more than confused with where to go. By ranking UBC is higher but only by a bit. All the schools have professors that I'm interested in and have been corresponding. The other major difference is the stipend, UBC offers $21000+one time 2000. A&M 24000, UCI 29500. Which school is the best place all around? When it comes to living and work. P. S. I'm an international student so US or Canada will be a new experience to me. And I'm mostly interested in inorganic chemistry
  7. Meet and greet for those considering/accepting UC Irvine? No specific program.
  8. How do you choose between schools when you're a good fit at both but in different ways, one is a smidgen more name-brand-y, the other seems a smidgen more collegial, one has a lot of top-notch university resources for professionalization, the other where the department itself seems to have more focus on professionalization, one that has well-known recommenders while the other has (apparently) more involved mentors, one that has no core courses because you're free to build your degree, while the other has core courses that help you better get a handle on disciplinary conventions, one that's located in boring city that's close to a bunch of cool cities and the other which is located in a small college town? Helppppppp
  9. So I'm a little torn on applications this year, as I really would like to stay in my current area (So Cal) and am extremely interested in two different programs at two institutions, USC (Creative Writing PhD and Comp. Media and Culture, Track I) and Irvine (Poetry MFA, where I was waitlisted in a previous cycle, but their Culture and Theory program is also so excellent and very suited to my research interests.) I realize these programs are different and I enjoy different kinds of writing. My own poetic work is deeply informed by my research interests. My poetic practice thrived most while I was immersed in high-level theory-saturated courses as an undergrad — and I honestly enjoy writing papers as well as poems, reported essays, and other things. If I did an MFA, I would certainly seek out the chance to take classes outside the creative writing dept suited to those interests. To boot, these programs are all quite competitive, and while I intend to apply to a few programs elsewhere that I'm particularly excited about, I'd frankly prefer not to move unless it's for my *dream school*. Is it taboo to apply to two programs from the same school? If not or not necessarily, should I acknowledge that I am doing so in statements? Does it just come off too thirsty? Do I have to choose?
  10. Last years they would've released results at this moment. Anyone has any insight?
  11. Hi, GradCafe members, I noticed on the Results forum that a couple of the GradCafe members had been accepted to the PhD in Education program at UCI (University of California Irvine). If you are out there, can you please PM me? I was also accepted, and would appreciate a chat to share resources and thoughts about the program. Thank you!
  12. Hello, anyone going to UCI next Fall? I am an international PhD student starting next Fall.
  13. Hi: I am deciding between UCI and USC masters program currently and both schools rank around the same (30+). While I really like the campus and environment of USC, I feel like UCI offers a biomedical engineering/bioengineering program that I look for. I have a medical device background but during my undergraduate years I begin losing interest in it. It's basically EE and ME more so than bio. I also feel like biotech companies rather just recruit a EECS or ME person rather than a BioE. Thus, I am beginning to gravitate towards cellular/genetic engineering, a concentration not found at USC. While I feel like I already answered my own question, I want to see if anyone have any other convincing reasons that I might not know of about USC that will allow me to take the offer at USC. I low key really prefer it over UCI just because of the reputation and LA.
  14. Has anyone else gotten any news from UC Irvine EE? I think I got admitted, but they sent me info on proof of funds as if I was a foreign student and then said it was a mistake.
  15. I've been able to look up information on average GPAs and GRE scores; however, I'd like to know if anyone can offer advice as to the rest of the application? What about work experience? Volunteerism? Other community involvement? Honors recognitions/ societies? Any suggestions for activities with which I can become involved for my junior and senior years as an English major? What about advice for course-load? Specific classes/ subject areas? Anything else that I might've missed despite my dozen questions? I'm interested in top-tier M.A./ Ph.D. programs, so I would like any and all input as far as preparation goes. Thanks in advance! Much appreciated!!
