  1. Hi guys, this is my first ever post, so I hope to not be doing anything wrong. I am a mechanical engineering undergraduate student from Brazil, and will be applying for graduate school in the US and in Canada for fall 2020 admission. Since the admission process is fairly different from what is done here in my country, I'm not familiar with the credentials that are considered to be good or bad for top schools (I do know, however, that the competition is fierce and sometimes even the best students don't get in), so any advice will be helpful. Here is a brief overview of my CV: Major: Mechanical Engineering Undergrad University: Top 30 in Brazil, but I don't know if it is well known internationally CGPA: 9/10 TOEFL: 110/120 GRE: Haven't taken it yet, but assume that I got stellar results Research Experience: 2 years at the Fluid Mechanics Lab (Mech Eng department), 3+ years at the Processes and Simulations Lab (Chemical Eng department), 1 year at the Renewable Energy Technology research group (Mech Eng department). PS: I participate simultaneously of these three groups. Publications: - Two as second author at an international congress (automated a device that allows for great precision in wind tunnel measurements and helped formulate a new mathematical model for blood flow). - One as second author at a national congress (had minor impact on this one, just analyzed some data and helped to write the paper). - One as second author at a respected peer-reviewed journal (submitted) (developed a new technology design that increases the energy output of hydroturbines). And, if all goes well, by the time I submit my application, I'll have 2-3 more publications (1 of these as first author) at highly regarded journals in my desired field (these publications are related to renewable energy such as hydroturbines and biomass combustion, plus a publication of experimental work that I'm currently carrying out with a masters student). Accomplishments/Awards: My CGPA may not seem so great when compared to other students, but in my department I'm ranked in the top 0.01% (yes, that's how they call it haha) of ALL students ever. Co-founded a research group with my professor. No awards. LORs: One from my long time advisor, who knows me very well and has been a huge part of my research career so far. One from other professor with whom I also conduct research and also happens to be very close. One from the department head, from when I took a graduate course in which he was the professor, and had the best grades in class. He also is my co-advisor (Got his PhD from Cornell). Extracurriculars: Part of the aerodynamics crew of a SAE aerodesign team. Was briefly part of the robotics team. Target schools: I intend to test my luck and apply to MIT, Stanford, Princeton, Cornell and University of Toronto. I know that it is impossible to say for sure if a CV is good enough or not since the admissions process is a crapshoot most of the time, but I would like to know your honest opinion based on your experiences. Thank you for your time.
  2. 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
  3. Once you know the type of program you want, what do you look for in schools and how do you look for it? For example, I like to look at program websites and read up on what types of projects the faculty are working on or what types of theses students in the program have written. I also look into the town/city to try to get a sense of the neighborhood I might be living in. How about you guys? Is it usually OK to reach out to alumni you find through the program website and ask them about their experiences?
  4. I just got an email from Johns Hopkins asking when I am available for a phone interview. Has anyone done this interview yet? What kinds of questions do they ask? What should I do to prepare? Interview's make me nervous so any input would be greatly appreciated.
  5. How is the application reviewed in the interview phase of EECS MS/PhD at UC Berkeley? If interviewed and accepted into the program, would the interviewer (by default) be the PhD supervisor? Or, is the student first accepted into the program and needs to find a research supervisor later? If the students are first accepted into the program and not by a specific advisor, how would funding be handled?

    NSF GRFP after Masters +1

    I'm enrolled in a joint BS/MS program but, due to university policy, I receive my B.S. degree this semester, and then my M.S. next year (called "Masters PlusOne" on my transcript). How does this effect my eligibility for the NSF GRFP? I see on the FAQ that there are different rules for BS/MS programs but I'm a bit confused by them. Should I wait until I'm enrolled in a PhD program to apply, since it seems like I only have 1 shot? And, if I'm not eligible to apply, I've seen some alternatives--like the NDSEG and the Hertz fellowships. Does anyone have a more comprehensive (or at least longer) list of alternative fellowships somewhere? First time posting, so please let me know if this isn't the right place! Thanks!
  7. Hey, I am unable to find much information regarding brown university's solid mechanics graduate program on the internet. Their webpage seems okay and prima facie the program looks strong, and I even spoke to a graduate student who said that the program is really good, but I was unable to find any other information otherwise. Can someone give me any information regarding this?
  8. Hello, I'm in my second year of my Masters program as a Biology major and I have never done a research project and have struggled to make connections with Professors. I fail to find internships for biology labs and am afraid of missing the opportunity for one. I have felt overwhelmed and my adviser wanted me to pick a Professor to mentor me on my Thesis, which I do not have. I have a new adviser now and feel like I'm back at square one. My grades have been slipping from stress and me desperately clawing for a social life, my GPA was 3.21 and I fear it dropping further. I have been feeling overwhelmed when trying to find a thesis topic, it hits me like a brick wall and I don't know how to get over it. I am trying to become a Clinical Laboratory Scientist (Medical Technician) but I have no job experience. I've never had a job before. I don't really know what job to get as a biology grad student, and if I can even get one. I really need advice on this. My College offers a Non-Thesis route, but I have gotten conflicting advice on whether to take it. I don't want to be a researcher, so is it the better option? I have terrible networking skills. I fail to keep in touch with Professors and my previous adviser, who is teaching a course I'm taking, is not impressed; she's worried about me (I have terrible depression where I'm unable to function in class group work and I can't control my emotions anymore, she has noticed my declining grades and mood). How am I going to network and connect with Professors with this mental decline on my back? The mistake I made was joining a Masters program right after completing my Bachelors degree in Biology. I wasn't prepared.
  9. Hello everyone, I have been having trouble lately matching my profile with potential MS ECE programs and would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me with shortlisting potential MS programs to apply to. I aim to apply mostly to universities in Canada and Europe, basically anywhere but the US (as I won't be able to take the GRE in time). I am also mainly looking for research/thesis based degrees, and preferably RA/TA funded degrees. My profile: Undergrad: B.Sc. ECE from an unknown institution internationally, but known regionally and undoubtedly one of the best nationally, Score: 83%. Research Interest: Electromagnetics and optics. IELTS: 9.

I have been working as an RA for the last few months, potentially a couple more publications are in the works. Which Canadian/European/Australian/Asian universities can I target with this profile for example for a funded research based MSc. degree? I don't want to waste time and money applying to prestigious institutions where I have no chance, so I would like to know where my 'level' is so to speak. I am an EU citizen if that makes any difference. Would really appreciate any feedback, please let me know if any extra info is needed. TIA .

    Recommend programs Canada 2019

  16. I would like to provide some information regarding the reality of getting admitted to top 5 ranked Canadian graduate schools in the Computer Science Program. I work in the field and it appears to me that many applicants are not aware of some of the basic requirements to be admitted that are not overtly stated but definitely required. Unfortunately, I am unable to reveal my university or position as I wish to remain anonymous. Most of the time, you MUST have previous degree from a top school of your country, especially for students with a degree outside of Canada/USA/UK. This is extremely crucial for international students and unless you meet this requirement, it is extremely difficult to be admitted. For most countries, you will need to be in the top 5-10 universities in your country (excluding Canada/US/UK/India). For India, UK, and Canada you will generally need to be in the top 20 universities and for the US, top 50 may be considered, however, top 20 has a greater chance of being admitted. One of the first considerations of the reviewer is the school in which you graduated and how that school ranks in your country. To elaborate, having a degree from a top university is important because this is the only sure way to prove that you are performing well academically because the teaching standard and research caliber of top schools are widely recognized and can easily be compared top Canadian universities. It is impossible for each top Canadian university to understand the teaching, grading and research standard of hundreds of thousands of universities in the world, including many in a foreign language with public and private systems and most reviewers will not dig around for information regarding unknown institutions. For example, there are some universities that give a grade of 75% or above to only one in a few thousand students, whereas another university can have a graduating average of 3.7 GPA. With variations like these, unless you graduated from a top university in your country where the general grading trend and teaching quality is recognized by the Canadian school, your chances of admission are slim to none. Furthermore, the other reason a top university is important is that reviewers want to see reference letters from colleagues or faculty they know and value the opinions of. Since most top researchers in Computer Science meet in major conferences, presentations and events around the world, they are aware of each other’s work, reputation and standards when writing and reading reference letters. Most of these outstanding members of the academic community are also positioned in top schools coinciding with the reviewer’s search applications from top schools. The top Canadian graduate programs in Computer Science receive over 1000 and sometimes even over 2000 applications per year, with three reference letters per application this is an astronomical number of letters to read. Taking this number into account, while the content of reference letters matter, the respectability of the reference writer is arguably even more important. For example, a reviewer reading 100 applications a day would have to read 300 reference letters, 100 of them may indicate that the student is in the top 10% of their program. In the end, being top 10% may not mean anything because there are too many top 10%s and it does not indicate the quality of the student or education. Moreover, there have been examples where the same reference writer indicated that three different students from the same year and class were the number one student in their class. In cases like these, reviewers go back to looking at the top universities, since the caliber of education is known, and they may know the reference writers, therefore, ensuring the letter is reliable. If you believe that there are many exceptions to the rule, consider that the admission data from the previous year from one of the top Canadians schools: only TWO offers out of more than 100 offers made were outside of the guidelines above. Of course, an excellent statement, GPA, reference letters, GRE, and English proficiency are also required even from a top university. Moreover, other factors such as publications, conference experience, research projects and work experience, other achievements are also considered, however, if you do not meet the top university requirement, you will likely need astounding achievements in the other factors to even be considered for admission. The information provided refers to research Master’s and PhD programs in top Canadian universities and does not necessarily reflect industry targeted master’s programs in Computer Science. I am happy to answer any questions or clarify any points, feel free to contact me or respond to this post.
  17. Hi, I am a Senior Year undergrad studying B. Engg in Information Technology. I am planning to do Masters by thesis in Computer Science from a good university in the USA, preferably FALL 2019. I have given the GRE and my scores are Q - 161 , V - 152 and AWA - 3.5. My CGPA is currently 7.47/ 10.0 (uptill 6th semester) and my SGPAs' from first sem to sixth sem are 8.33, 8.08, 6.92, 7.23, 7.16, 7.19 on a scale of 10.0. Also, my grades in key subjects like Operating Systems, Computer Networks, Probability and Random process, Discrete Mathematics, Compiler Construction, Theory of Automata are usually either C or D and occasionally B. What are my chances of getting into some of the decent colleges for MS in CS like Stony Brook, Rutgers NB, UMASS Amherst, University of Maryland, Texas A&M Collegestation etc ? Would I be able to get into a respectable grad program in any public research university with good placements and engaging programs? TLDR: My CGPA - 7.47/10.0 and SGPA dropped from 8.33 to a low of 6.92 due to poor health and stabilised around 7.2 by end of 6th sem. Poor grades in important subjects. Chances of getting into colleges like UMASS Amherst, Ohio State University, Rutgers NB, Stony Brook etc. PS: Giving my TOEFL on sep 15 and Thanks in Advance!

Thank you in advance.
  19. Hi everybody! I am planning on pursuing MS degree in EE with the concentration on RFIC. My chance of getting into UIUC EEMS is high because of some department policy. But I want to try different university for graduate study (due to personal issues). I performed pretty bad in GRE writing but I heard for engineering field, the writing is not that important so I will still use the current GRE score in my application. Lack of publication and research experience are also my weaknesses. Major: EE from UIUCGPA in Major: 3.85 / 4Overall GPA: 3.93 / 4Type of Student: International male, AsianGRE Scores: 331+3Q: 169 (96%)V: 162 (91%)W: 3 (17%)TOEFL Total: 108 LOR: Three from EE professors (all specialized in my field of interest). Pretty sure will get one strong letter from the prof I am currently doing research with. Research Experience: 7 months and ongoing Undergrad RA in UIUC. My jobs involved redesign the RF circuit for isolator and circulator, analyze the experiment data and fabricate the circuit board. No publications so far but most likely will get one this fall (2nd author out of 4). Did a summer project about microstrip antenna directly with professor. It was not a strong research project and only involved some basic antenna elements design and elaborated simulation. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: earned highly competitive merit-based scholarships once and dean's list every semesterPertinent Activities or Jobs: grader for three semesters in a DSP course. I was responsible for grading homework. Applying to Where: Stanford University - Electrical Engineering MS (IC) Princeton University- EE PhD (IC) UC-Berkeley - EE PhD (IC) Thank you in advance for your time and assistance! I am open to all opinions. I can graduate one semester earlier than scheduled if I choose to stay in UIUC (spring admission) and I am happy with it. But I dreamed about studying at Stanford since my very young age. I would like to hear some suggestions.
  20. Hello everyone, I am kinda freaking out right now because idk if I will get accepted into an SLP Master's Program. I know that it's a very competitive field and I don't have the best statuses. Here are my stats, Overall GPA 3.3, Major GPA 3.5, GRE: 139V 142Q 3.0AW (I know its bad Dx). I am planning to retake the GRE one more time before August and hoping to get in the 150's (I've been using Magoosh and it's been helping. The practice tests say I would probably score 145-150, but I still have a month til my test). I currently live in Nevada and there's only one Master's program here. I am currently looking at these schools: Old Dominion, Hampton University, distance programs such as Nova and NYU Steinfield, Louisiana State University, Arizona State University, etc. If you applied or was accepted can you tell me how you like it and if I have a chance of being accepted. Thank you everyone~
  21. Hello Everyone, Present I am currently working as a Full Stack developer for a technology company. I have had hands on experience with recent .Net(MVC, WebAPI) and front end frameworks(AngularJS/Angular2/4/5). I started working with a startup right after my under-grad and have been with them for 3.5 years now. I got promoted from Software Engineer to Sr. Software Engineer and currently lead a team of 15 people on several projects. Simultaneously, I work for an international client (Director of Technology) on building their complex internal use software, for which I have designed the architecture, take requirements(Agile), develop and deploy its releases. I have a stack overflow reputation of ~4K. I am in top 5% users in AngularJs and top 20% in c# and always #SOreadytohelp. Past I graduated from Manipal University, Karantaka after completing my BE in computer science. I have had a tough time in my college as I could manage a mere 5.73/10 cgpa with over 15 backlogs. I self taught myself different languages(c#, javascript, python, PHP, etc..) and worked on small and enterprise projects when i entered the real world. Future Now, I believe I have gained enough knowledge that I could have from my current role and wish to explore further on my potential by doing masters in either MIS/DataScience/ML/AI. Another reason is that I really wish to taste proper education by studying in a good school. GRE/TOEFL I would be giving the standardized tests by end of August and very certain to score 320-323 in GRE and 105-107 in TOEFL (got this data by analyzing mock tests I have given). LOR I can manage 4 recommendations 1 from either my java or maths professor in college. 1 from my ex-manager who recently quit. 1 from the CEO of my current company with whom I have worked on php projects. 1 from the client based in USA for whom I have worked closely in developing internal software. SOP I believe that I can write a convincing statement about my potential to work for the program, defend my low grades and other relevant things. Funding I have gathered some to self-fund my tuition fees and rest would be a bank loan depending on the tuition cost (15K-25K per annum) Need clarification on the below queries : What if I could not manage a LOR from any of my professors since its been 4 years now, would a professor LOR really be required? How do I go about shortlisting universities(Ambi, Mod, Safe) which are not GPA centric yet can offer competitive computer science programs? Which universities of Canada can offer similar programs with my profile? What are my chances of scholarship in these universities? Are my chances better if i apply early to these programs?
  22. Undergrad Institution: Top 5 Undergrad Institution, Top 5 for Statistics - USNWR Major: Statistics GPA: 3.1/4.0 cumulative, 2.97/4.0 major (No excuses, I wish I had worked harder.

Built a large scale data visualization application first summer in a CS institute. Working at a Data Science Institute for this summer. Both are a part of my university. Recommendation Letter: Two with senior researchers that I RA'd for; one from a well-known CS professor that I've taken two classes with. One from a Stat professor that I got along with and may do research with this summer. Coding Experience: R, Python, C/C++ Other experience: Software Engineering Intern for a large consulting company. Worked in their IT Department. Awards/Honors: N/A I have no clue which schools to aim for. Would love MS program recommendations.
