  2. Hi everyone, I'm applying for ms cs this year in the following Canadian universities. U of T Waterloo McGill UBC McMaster I have GRE scores of Verbal 163 Quantitative 165 Writing 4.0/6.0. I have a 3.33 GPA from a top 3 university for CS(also known for grade deflation unfortunately) in the USA. How likely am i to get in to these universities for their Masters programs in computer science (non-phd)?
  3. Hey guys, I am a 4th year dual degree student (B.Tech+M.Tech) in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Bombay, India (rank 1 in India according to QS). I am planning to apply for MS or PhD programs for fall 2022 in Mechanical Engineering (thinking about Energy Systems as well). The following are the universities that I plan on applying to - Stanford, UC Berkeley, University of Michigan, Georgia Tech, Purdue, EPFL, ETH, TU Delft, University of Toronto An overview of my profile: CGPA : 9.15/10 (~top 15% in my class) TOEFL : 113/120 2 Research projects under profs in my department Research intern in Canada (upcoming summer) 1 Publication in an international journal (submitted) 2 Internships - one industrial and one at a startup Dual Degree Project (ongoing) My B.Tech degree will be with honours as I did some extra courses Taking GRE soon (expecting around 330) Recommendation letters - one from Dual Degree Project guide, one from research intern guide, one from a senior prof in my department who knows me well ( I did 3 courses under him and got the highest grade in each) Can anyone tell me if my university choices are overly ambitious (worried about my CGPA)? Should I add more safety schools? I would prefer to join a PhD program directly but would be okay with an MS as well. Will my M.Tech be a disadvantage for the MS programs? My main targets are ETH and EPFL. Thanks in advance! Any advice would be really helpful.
  4. Hi, everyone. I have already got admitted by UCLA and UCSD for MS program. My undergraduate major is civil engineering and I want to focus on my area on structural engineering. For UCLA, I was admitted into civil engineering MS program and there is structural area under civil engineering department. For UCSD, I was admitted into structural engineering MS program. I want to study about computational mechanics/structural simulation/seismic structures. Also, I am wondering which university is open to dual master program. If you have any experience about those two school in Structural Engineering, feel free to reply me! It will be helpful for me. Thank you!
  5. The well-being of a society is enhanced when many of its people question authority. The issue posed presumes a positive relationship between the society’s well-being and the challenges to authority by the people. Even the correlation between the two can seem a little unbalanced at times, my position weighs more in support of the statement. As democracy has it, the well-being of society more generally points at the development and well-being of its people, who, however have placed a party in the position of authority for the very same purpose. Economics run on the fundamentals of individuals behaving in a way that best suit their individual interests and hence, questioning the authority is a way of expressing disagreement with the actions of authorities in terms of interests of the people, and evidently, the society. The position of authority is best utilised when those in power do not become lethargic at the position and questioning the authority ensures just that. It is because plain assertiveness with those in power serves best in interests of those in the position for it cannot be expected from an individual to completely replace their rational interests with feelings of altruism, irrespective of the position of authority. A peek at a regular day in today’s world politics would establish the same point significantly, with authorities in power riddled with their own ideologies and self-interests at the expense of what the people in the country want. Even though it is true that a group of people can act in their selfish interests and question the authority with motives not aligned to the well-being of the society as a whole, if many of the society’s people question the authority, as the question proposes, the selfish interests of individuals or a group of individuals are overshadowed with those that extend the well-being of the society. Questioning the authority has proved to be an efficient mechanism behind the working of democracies for the longest time, in countries belonging to all categories in the world. How else do we justify the overpowering role of unbiased media in ensuring allied behaviour of the authorities with the people’s demands and needs? After all, media explicitly works to amplify the voices of the people. Hence, it can be concluded that a society functions better when its people question authorities, more often than displaying unrivalled faith in those in power.
  6. I am super confused between these three univs for pursuing MS in mechanical, with just a week remaining to finalize my decision it will be really helpful if someone can comment about these univs wrt following- 1. Funding. (UMich seems too expensive with little probability of Masters securing RA positions, UIUC on the other hand seems to have plenty of options) 2. Research (My area of specialization will be micro/nanosystems or MEMS, please comment on this specific research aspect for the three univs. I feel UIUC has the best research facility for micronano stuff) 3. Job Opportunities (I don't plan to continue for PhD, so finally getting a decent job is my target. Please comment about the pros and cons of these univs regarding recruitment by industries) Right now I'm inclined towards UIUC due to better funding opportunities and research facilities but letting go of UMich seems difficult due to it's excellent ranking and reputation. UCLA also is lucrative due to it's location and job hunt feasibility. Kindly give any relevant suggestion to help me finalize something :)
  7. I am from Uzbekistan and I'm a female, so I might qualify for underrepresented nation/sex in science. I can't find any open calls
  8. Hi, Has anyone here heard from Georgia Tech MS ECE program in nanotechnology track? Recently there were a string of admits but none of them seemed to be from Nanotechnology track. I was curious as to the difference in timelines for issuing admits to various tracks within ECE. Any information on this would be helpful. Thanks!
  9. Hi All, Really looking to get some advise here! Please help out! I got accepted to Boston University's Artificial Intelligence program and Cornell Tech Master of Engineering in Computer Science this year. I am currently a full time software engineer (full stack and backend) who finished my undergrad in CS in 2019 and wish to transition into more data and ML related fields so Im pursuing a MS degree. During my masters I wish to try my best to put up a strong application package for PhD applications with more research exposure (RIP undergrad where I did not do any research). As I cannot make an immediate decision, genuinely asking which program would be a better choice for me?
  10. May I ask how would everyone compare Berkeley and Stanford in terms of their programs in computational geomechanics? I have been admitted to both MS programs but applied to both for a PhD program at first. Since I am working towards a PhD degree, which one will offer more research opportunities and be more suitable to acquire such trainings? Also, what will the chances of getting into a PhD program after graduating from these two programs (either stay at the same uni or apply to another one)? Many thanks in advance!
  11. Starting this thread for a friend who's applying to MSBA programs and anxiously waiting. We'd love to hear any updates anyone have on their applications!
  12. 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
  13. Is Web and App Development considered a relevant skill while applying to MS programs across USA ?
  14. Hello !I'm a biotechnology undergrad and I'm applying for a masters in environmental sciences and sustainability. I've had a couple of courses on environmental sciences and technology and frankly wish to explore and learn more in this field but I'm stuck with my SOP and I personally feel like I don't have enough academic background(theoretical) or practical experience to backup my resolve on my SOP.As for a research question, I'm a novice and haven't really explored much to come up with a question. Here are a few things that I thought would support my SOP Presented a relevant research paper in class(effect of climate change on European fisheries and climate risk assesment) college electives - environmental science, environmental biotechnology, ecology and society Coursera - a few courses (in progress)(will the certificate be mandatory?) Project on industrial contaminant(napthenic acid) treatment and risk I'm not that optimistic about my chances but i don't want to leave without giving it my all. Any ideas?Anyone who'd be willing to review my SOP?I'll PM it to you (fairly new to this forum so I've to figure out how) I'm applying for fall 2021 and I'm already extremely late so any help will be appreciated ! Any info on unis which are known for this course will also be appreciated! Thank you! P.S :I wish I had discovered this space much earlier,smh

  16. Hi, I'm currently applying for my masters in I/O psychology. I'm mostly applying to American schools, but am considering also applying to the University of Waterloo in Canada. All of undergrad I've been told how important research experience is for grad school. I'm wondering if the same mindset applies when it comes to Canadian grad schools? Or is work experience more valued? Thank you!
  17. Hello everyone! Greetings from India. I have a doubt regarding Masters requirements for a long time. Do universities (globally; say the US or UK) accept early graduates (i.e. those who graduated in 3.5 years), or do they strictly expect 4-year Bachelors students (from India)? I tried to find answers on the web but to no avail. I'd appreciate any information about the same!
  18. Hey everyone, I would appreciate a rundown of my profile and would love some advice/tips. Thanks. I'm entering from a mostly unrelated field. Undergrad Institution: Large State School Major(s): Criminal Justice/Criminology Minor(s): Mathematics (Post-bacc mostly) GPA: 3.5 (4.0 since start of Junior year) Type of Student: DWM, LGBT but I probably won't be mentioning that in my application. GRE General Test: I'm a very bad test-taker and will be retaking. Q: 157 (62%) V: 161(88%) W: 4.5 (80%) GRE Subject Test in Mathematics:n/a TOEFL Score:n/a Grad Institution: n/a Concentration: GPA: Programs Applying: Statistics/Biostatistics (Master's only). Research Experience: Unpublished firearm policy/casualty trends research conducted through R. My mentor on this project is an epidemiologist at my university and will be writing one of my letters of rec. I've also been listed as a contributor on a submitted-for-publishing epidemiology study. I also have one presentation at a conference under my belt. Nothing too exciting. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Nothing outside of president's list. Pertinent Activities or Jobs: TA'd a Calculus course for economic/business majors. Also employed as a math tutor at my university. Letters of Recommendation: Two letters from math professors I know very well (including the one I TA'd for) and the previously mentioned epidemiologist. Math/Statistics Grades: Calculus 1-3 (A), Discrete Math (A), Linear Algebra (A), Intro to Statistics (A). I'm also taking Probability, Diff Eq, and a prerequisite course to Real Analysis this upcoming semester. Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: Without being too specific, a lot work I did in undergrad had ties to public-health in minority populations. My main interest is using/developing statistical methods to better study aspects of healthcare, especially those that are more related to SES issues. I don't know how programs would view this since my background isn't strictly in Math/Biology/Statistics. Also, if I fail to increase my GRE Quant to 163+ before the deadline, how badly do you think my chances will be impacted? Applying to Where: (All Master's) (You're welcome to add suggestions, although I'd prefer to not be on the West Coast.) University of Florida University of Georgia University of South Carolina University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill University of Iowa University of Minnesota University of Michigan Duke University Emory University Thank you!
  19. 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?

  21. 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 ?
  22. 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!

  24. 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.
  25. 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)
