  1. Hello all! I'm an undergrad interested in pursuing a graduate degree in Biostatistics but I'm unsure if I should apply for MS or MPH programs. At this point, I'm planning to pursue a PhD afterward getting my master's and am wondering if I'll be at a disadvantage if I get an MPH. I know that an MS will better help prepare me for a PhD because it'll be more research-oriented than an MPH, but does it really make a big difference to admission committees?
  2. Does anyone know how the MS program at Yale is? I'm not sure how good the CS department at Yale is.

  4. Starting this topic because I couldn't find an existing one! Has anyone heard back from CMU regarding MS in ECE for Fall 2020 cycle ?
  5. Hello! I got accepted into Columbia and UNC's MS biostatistic programs and I need some help in making my decision! So, as of right now, I'm not really considering pursuing for a PhD after the master program. But I've heard that getting a PhD in biostatistics really gives you advantages in the job market that you kinda have to have a PhD to get a job that pays well (although this applies to all fields I guess), so if anyone knows about this, please help! My main concern is about the schools themselves. For Columbia, I've heard that the MS program is easy and that they give a lot of admissions for this program every year. Given this, I'm a little concerned whether the program is really that good and whether it worth the money to go there. Also, my friend told me that UNC is closer to the firms in the industry so that it actually gives more job opportunity than Columbia does. As for UNC, I know its got a better program and higher ranks academically speaking, but I think its location has less advantage. Also, I feel like UNC's program has less "freedom" than Columbia's in the sense that it's got such a rigorous program that if I go there, I probably should be determined in biostatistics. Not that I don't, but I feel like going to Columbia and NYC can give me more leeway if I want to explore something else. Please help if you have any suggestions! I appreciate any replies!

  7. Hi all! Starting this thread for folks who applied to the MS in Information Experience Design (IXD) at Pratt for 2020 admissions. Goal is to keep track of when folks start hearing back about admissions and scholarship. I submitted my application in November 2019 and sat in on a course in May 2019. Excited about the prospect of the Research track -- not a designer here.
  8. 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)
  9. Hey all! I didn't see many forums for the counseling and other related master's and I've been obsessively starting to check my email for interview invites so put yours below! School Name: Program: (MHC, MSW, MFT, etc.) Date invite received: Interview date: if you want
  10. Hey Everyone!, a newbie to this forum here! I am a prospective student who will be applying to the MS Computer Science Program at Georgia Tech. I have a unique doubt. I have already submitted a Ph.D. application (ML Ph.D. program) at Georgia Tech. But according to this link (https://grad.gatech.edu/helpdesk/knowledgebase.php?article=7), a student is allowed to have two open applications per semester. So, my first question is that then it should not be a problem if I decide to apply to the MS CS Program, given that I have another submitted application already, right? Second, if I am allowed to apply to the MS CS Program, I have another doubt, the deadline for the Ph.D. Program was December 15th, and I will be submitting the MS application by February 1st. And since I am in the last year of my undergraduate studies, I now have the results of my Fall Semester with me as well, so the transcript I will be submitting with the MS CS Program will be the updated one and will be different from the transcript associated with my already submitted Ph.D. application, will this cause any issue in any regards? One Side note: the ML Ph.D. application was submitted to the Industrial Department while the MS in CS one will be forwarded to the School of Computer Science. I want to submit my updated transcript because I scored a perfect 10/10 GPA in my latest sem & so it increased my GPA by 0.08. Since it is a competitive program, I think this will give me an advantage. Since I am in a time crunch, sorry if I did not adhere to any of the rules of the forum, Hoping to hear a reply from you people in regards to both queries as soon as possible. I tried contacting Georgia Tech with this query but to no avail.
  11. I'm a student of Electrical Engineering at Jadavpur University, India. My profile being as follows, please indicate if my research experience would outweigh my pretty average GPA : GRE: 323(160v+163q) TOEFL iBT: 107 CGPA: 8.2 /10 Research Experience: 4 Separate research projects : 1 in condensed matter physics, 2 in Optics , and 1 in High Voltage EM computation. Publications: 1 Publication in Frontiers in Physics ( impact 1.89) on condensed matter physics ( jointly first-authored ),1 pending Publication in SPIE photonics ( submitted for review ) Schools I am considering: I am primarily interested in gaining a good understanding of Electronics and Photonics with Optics. Hence both ECE courses in some univs and Exclusively Photonics masters courses match : European Masters in Photonics at UGent + VUB Europhotonics Masters degree programme MSc at Imperial College London Masters at UCL EE at UMICH ECE MS at UIUC ECE at Georgia Tech ECE at UCSD EE at UCLA Optics master at Univ of Rochester MS in Optics at Univ. of Arizona MS programme, CREOL, UCF Abbe School of Photonics, Jena, MSc MSc in photonics in Univ of Jena Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, MSc Masters of Light science and Tech, Univ Bordeaux. Mc Gill University MS EE As you can see I seemingly have a large number of choices of varying difficulties. Please help me cut down the list by difficulty. Any Insight on Good courses in ECE that suit my profile and I might have missed would help too. Thanks.
  12. Undergraduate Institution: State school Majors: Mathematics and Psychology (Double major) GPA: Cumulative GPA: 3.03/4.00 GPA at last school attended: 3.47/4.00 Math major GPA: 3.70/4.00 Type of Student: Domestic multiracial (white/indigenous/Latina) female Relevant Courses: Past: Calculus I,II,III, IV (all A) Discrete Math (A) Ordinary Differential Equations (A) Applied Statistics (C) Linear Algebra (B) Applied Abstract Algebra (A) Mathematical Modeling (A) Topology (audited) Directed Readings (Satisfactory/Pass) Current: Abstract Algebra I (currently A) Real Analysis I (currently A) Capstone (currently A) Programming Abstractions (currently A but it will likely drop to a B ) Future? (I graduate this semester and don’t yet know if I’ll be able to take these): Real Analysis II Data Structures GRE General Test: 318 (Verbal: 159 | Quantitative: 159 | Writing: waiting to hear) Research Experience: Participated in a reading course/looked at some open problems related to lattice cryptography for one summer. I also have about six months of experience in a cognitive neuroscience lab. Extracurricular stuff: Participated in an informal reading program with a grad student, where I studied the elliptic curve factorization algorithm and algorithms for Delaunay triangulation. I also gave a talk on Delaunay triangulation. Honors/Awards: LSAMP scholar, Dean’s List (multiple semesters), President’s List (once) Interests: cryptography, graph theory, number theory, mathematical biology, computational geometry Misc. Info: I dropped out of college a couple of times and failed an entire semester back in 2012. My grades the last couple of years, especially since switching to a math major, have turned around significantly. I also have years of irrelevant work experience, but a history of being promoted. Letters of Recommendation: A math prof that I’ve had several courses with and done research with haven’t asked anyone else yet, but will likely be asking my analysis, calc 3, and algebra professors and just seeing who feels they can write a strong letter, if any. I don’t know any of them well, but I’ve been to their office hours a couple of times and I have/had good grades in their classes. Schools I might apply to: UT Arlington, PhD or MS (not sure) UT Dallas, PhD University of North Texas, PhD Southern Methodist University, PhD Applied Mathematics University of Oklahoma, MS or PhD (not sure) Oklahoma State, PhD Pure Math University of Arkansas Kansas State University of Kansas General questions: Should I retake the GRE for a higher quant score? Is this an okay list of schools? Does anyone have any suggestions for other places to apply in this general region? @BL250604
  13. Hi guys. I just gave my GRE a few days back and got an unofficial score of 303. (Quants- 150, Verbal - 153) (Not a great score,IK. TBH, my projected score in Magoosh was 310-319. I freaked out during my test). I just want to know if there's any universities in this list that would still accept this score. Boston University Georgia Institute of Technology New York University Ohio State University Purdue University Rutgers Texas A & M University University of California - Irvine University of California - Los Angeles University of Chicago University of Colorado Boulder University of Illinois - Chicago University of Massachusetts - Amherst University of Minnesota University of North Carolina University of Southern California University of Texas - Austin University of Utah University of Virginia University of Wisconsin - Madison I know the list is ambitious but I want to know if there's any chance or if I should start looking further down.
  14. I am a CS grad and after 4 years of experience I am thinking about pursuing MS. My intention behind MS is purely getting into research and robotics. I plan to learn raspberry pi and quadcopter on my own time first before approaching any professors for RAship. I am targeting a fully funded MS either by TAship or RAship. Please advise.
  15. Hey there Has anybody heard anything about UIUC's MS Psychology program? I believe it's been recently introduced and tailored to students who eventually want to pursue a PhD but don't have relevant research experience/statistical methodology. I eventually want to get a PhD in Clinical Psychology but I don't come from a Psych background so I believe this would be beneficial for me. But on the other hand, I'm not sure how it will help specifically with clinical psychology. If anybody knows anyone in this course/has any idea how it is please get back to me!! xoxo
  16. Nationality/Race : Indian Major : Electrical and Electronics engineering GPA : 8.28/10 (from a T20 college in India) GRE : 163Q 155V 4.5AWA 1 patent publication (final examination pending) 1 conference paper (might be able to get in another one) 1 journal paper which should be in review by the time I start applying for programs SOP : Should be fine except for the fact that I would be stating that a PhD would be my end goal even though I'm applying for MS programs now LoRs : 2 should be very strong(having worked with both professors for over a year) with 1 being moderate I've done multiple side projects but I do not know how much they would add to my profile 2.5 months of work experience although it's different from the programs I'm looking to apply to I want to know if I'm competitive enough for t30 USNews ECE programs (in VLSI) for MS (or) PhD
  17. Hello, I received offers from CU Boulder and NCSU in MS Electrical Engineering and now deciding what to choose. My area of interest are analog circuits, devices, RF/Microwave. Especially, I like practical side of learning, to clarify I like to create meaningful devices rather than write paper. Moreover, I expect to improve my skills in using instruments and CAD programs. Both schools seems solid in these aspects, but I was unable to find more detailed information from real engineers. Location and city are also important. I heard that Boulder prohibits expansion, so is it hard to find apartment (condo) in good condition, 1bd (or studio) with washing machine in unit ? About Raleigh I have not much information. P.S. I am still waiting answer from UCLA but chances are close to zero, so it is probably better even not to wait them because deadline is approaching.
  18. I got admits from UCSB, USC, UCI and TAMU for thesis based MS in ECE/EE depts. I am an international student and from the uni websites I gathered that Unis like TAMU and UCI look like their main focus is in wireless communications. My specific research interests are more towards statistical signal processing and ML. Can you guys help me get a perspective on these colleges regarding the research, their domains and the best college fit for me?
  19. 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
  20. Hi everyone! Could you give some advice about choosing a Master's degree in Biotechnology between Upenn or Northwestern? Or could you share some of your experiences in either of the two programs? I really don't know where to go… About myself, I prefer to pursue a PhD after the Master's degree (for now) instead of entering the industry. But I've heard that the program in Upenn is more industry-oriented, and I haven't gathered enough information about NU...Most of my information comes from the program websites, so I would like to hear more about your opinions and experiences! I will be very grateful for your suggestions! Good luck to everyone!
  21. Hi! I was wondering if there was anyone who completed or is currently attending Northwestern in the MS Biostatistics program? I am leaning towards attending this school but also can't really find any information from students about the program. I hope to work in pharma after graduation or something similar to that - I was just worried since the classes seem to point more towards clinical research. thank you!

  23. Need suggestions regarding best colleges and programs for MS in computer science related fields. Below are my scores & details : GRE Score : 158 (Quant) + 142 (Verbal) [unofficial] Work experience : '6 years 8 months' in I.T. firm as 'Data Warehouse ETL Developer'. Bachelor's degree : 'Bachelor of Technology' in 'Electrical & Electronic Engineering' GPA 2.7.
  24. I have gotten admission offers from both UCLA and UCSD for MS in ECE. UCLA is for Signals and Systems track, and UCSD is for Communication Theory. As evident from the MS specialisation, I am interested in Signals & Systems and Communication Theory. I feel course wise both schools are at par. I am interested in knowing how are the prospects of finding internships are jobs henceforth. If anyone had a similar choice to make, what and why did you choose one over another?
  25. Do all Columbia Ms Cs people get interviews. I haven't got an interview till now. What does it indicate?
