  1. Hi everyone! I didn't see a thread for this year's materials science applicants, so I decided to create one to discuss acceptances, research interests, and all of the different programs people are applying to. I am interested in energy materials with specific applications to energy storage or fuel cells. I applied to PhD programs at University of Chicago Molecular Engineering, Northwestern, UPenn, Drexel, UMich, University of Illinois at Chicago, and Yale. I also applied to a master's program at Illinois Institute of Technology. So far I have only heard back from University of Chicago where I was rejected. Anyway, feel free to respond and talk about how the application cycle is treating you so I don't feel like the only neurotic low-life out here
  2. Hi all!! I noticed there were a decent amount of people on here applying for MSE graduate degrees, so I figured I would make this. Good luck to everyone! Use the template below to plug in your applicant information: _________________________________________ Undergrad Institution (approx. rank/reputation in STEM): Major(s): Minor(s): GPA in Major: x.xx/4.00 Overall GPA: x.xx/4.00 Demographics/Background: GRE Scores: Q: xxx (xx%) V: xxx (xx%) W: x.x (xx%) LOR: Research Experience: Publications/Abstracts/Presentations: Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Fellowships/Funding: Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Other Miscellaneous Accomplishments: Anything else in your application that might matter (faculty connections, etc.): Research Interests: Institutions/Programs: Comments:
  3. Hello, I am currently a 4th year undergrad at UCLA studying materials engineering. I need to decide whether to stay at UCLA or head off to Cornell for a masters in materials engineering. I am quite sure I do not want to do a PhD and want to set myself up to be able to get a job either in aerospace/automotive or electronics/semiconductor industries in CA. I was wondering if anyone had any firsthand experiences with the Cornell M. Eng program, or if anyone had any thoughts/advice/tips? UCLA (MS) would be the easy comfortable choice to make but it would be a good opportunity to go out of my comfort zone and go to an Ivy League. I’m just hoping that Cornell will adequately prepare me and help jumpstart my career: are cornell’s internships/projects rewarding and comprehensive enough to better myself as an engineer and will it’s geographic distance from CA impact my job search? cornell is a 1 year program + maybe additional summer session and UCLA is a 3-5 quarter program which will take 1-1.5 years

  5. Saw some other majors that had a thread for people to post where they chose to accept and which school they are declining. Thought it might be interesting to see!

  7. I have recently been admitted into the Materials PhD programme at UC Santa Barbara. Whilst I am aware that it has been highly ranked by several bodies, I would like a more educated opinion from people here. Is it really as good as they say it is? I am slightly worried as I am an international student. The reputation of UCSB isn't very significant outside of the US and I am hoping I am making the right decision to invest at least 5 years of my life there
  8. I am an international student who was recently accepted into the PhD program for materials science and engineering at UCLA. I was told I would have to support myself for my first year. However, they added that I could apply for TA positions in my second year. What are the chances of me getting those TA positions and funding for next few years at UCLA?
