  1. 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~

    MS in Computers

    Which country will be good to pursue MS in Computers, considering political issues regarding foreigners still unstable in the States. PS I am Indian.
  5. I plan to do my masters in Mechanical Engineering and the area of concentration which I have chosen is Fluid and Thermal Sciences. I have admits from NCSU (for Fall 2018) and from USC (for Spring 2019). Which one shall I go for and why?
  6. Hey fellow MSE gradcafe residents! Based on @shur42's thread from last year, I thought it would be good to start a thread for MSE students applying for the Fall 2018 cycle, to get to know each other and learn about each other's application profiles. Would also be helpful for those from the Fall 2017 cycle to contribute their profiles and any tips This is the template that they used (from a biology thread) for application profiles: Undergrad Institution: (School or type of school, such as big state, lib arts, ivy, technical, foreign (what country?))Major(s):Minor(s):GPA in Major:Overall GPA:Position in Class: (No numbers needed, but are you top? near top? average? struggling?)Type of Student: (Domestic/International, male/female, minority?)GRE Scores (revised/old version):Q:V:W:TOEFL Total: (if applicable, otherwise delete this)Research Experience: (At your school or elsewhere? What field? How much time? Any publications (Mth author out of N?) or conference talks etc...)Awards/Honors/Recognitions: (Within your school or outside?)Pertinent Activities or Jobs: (Such as tutor, TA, etc...)Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help:Special Bonus Points: (Such as connections, grad classes, famous recommenders, female or minority status etc...)Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter:Applying to Where:School - Department - Research InterestSchool - Department - Research InterestSchool - Department - Research Interest
  7. Applying to Environmental Engineering MS (and later PhD) here. I got an acceptance from Carnegie Mellon Feb 1st (funding but not full ride), and an acceptance from Montana State University March 27th. I still have not heard back from the other two schools, (Oregon State University and University of Minnesota). Minnesota is my number 1 pick because of their Bioremediation focus (which is my focus). But I don't know what to do because the April 15th deadline is this Sunday! Also Minnesota seems to be avoiding me because the professor I have been communicating with for the last year is suddenly unresponsive and the admissions department is also not responding to me... Do yall think I should just accept my number 2 (Carnegie Mellon) and withdraw if I get a good offer from Minnesota? I would rather not tarnish bridges and be out a $100 deposit if I don't have to. But I will if I need to. Carnegie Mellon said they would give me another week past April 15th if I need it, I just don't know how long to hold out and I am going crazy. Also, does anyone know if University of Minnesota Civil and Environmental Engineering Masters offers have gone out yet? I suspect a first round went out a while ago but don't have any information on that. Thanks! GPA: 3.69 Major: Biology , Minor: Chemistry GRE: 159 Verbal (83%), 160 Quantitative (76%), 4.5 Writing (82%)
  8. Hi all. I recently got an admit (big surprise) from University of Washington's Computational Linguistics Master's degree. Do any of you have more information on it? How is the course, job placements, research etc? I am from India and primarily looking for a job + H1B visa in an ML/NLP job profile. Thanks

    NYU FALL2018

    Any NYU admits for MS CS fall 2018??
  10. I've read a lot of posts asking about a low GPA and getting into masters programs, but I thought I'd ask about my particular situation. I wasn't going to, but now I am at my wit's end. I thought I could recover my 3.1 GPA this semester because I got a 96 on the first exam in Multivariable Calculus, but then I got shit on by this past exam and will most likely be getting a B+ in the class. I'm a junior majoring in Mathematics-Statistics and minoring in Computer Science at the University of Connecticut. My relevant grades are as follows: * Calc 1 = A- * Calc 2 = A- * Multi = Pending (but hopefully B+/A-) * Linear algebra = B * Differential Equations = A- * Introduction to Programming Principles = B- (notoriously hard) * Data Structures = B * Discrete Systems (Discrete math in CS department) = B * Intro to Proofs (Basically repeat of Discrete Systems but way more writing) = Pending (Looking like A-) * Algorithms = Pending (Looking like B/B+) * Intro to Software Engineering = Pending (Looking like A-) * Computer Architecture = Pending (Looking like I'm taking these before I submit my applications. **Fall 2018** * Statistical Methods * Probability * Numerical Analysis * Mathematical Statistics 1 * Mathematical Modeling * Design of Experiments The reason for the low 3.1 GPA is that I transferred after my freshman year, and therefore had less time and classes to balance out my C- in Gen Chem 1 and C- in Gen Chem 2. I also have W's in Intro to Stats (yikes) , Theory of Computation, and Microeconomics. Grad school was never in my mind until recently so I never thought W's would matter, but now I hate myself for not sticking through it. I know my grades are a disaster, but I'd really like to continue my education and learn statistics in depth to become....get this.... a data scientist. I am going to apply to masters programs in statistics in early January so that I can have an extra semester to bring my GPA up. If I can get my GPA up to a 3.3-3.4, get excellent LORs from professors and kick ass on GRE (like 165+ in Q), do I have a good chance into getting into these schools: * University of Connecticut (#1 CHOICE) * Central Connecticut State University * Iowa State University * University of Maryland * UC San Diego * UC Davis

    Dartmouth college

    Hello, Congratulations to all who have received acceptance to Dartmouth. I am looking for a ( girl) roommate at Dartmouth College Hanover. Interested people , kindly drop your comments below!
  12. I'm a fourth year ChemE student at an engineering college in India. I've applied to pursue M.S in ChemE in the US and received admits from Cornell, UMich, CMU and Northwestern. All this while, I was dead sure I was going to go to UMich, simply because I felt it was a really selective program and I loved the fact that you could do interdisciplinary projects that were funded by industrial partners. A couple of weeks later, I heard from Cornell University, which was initially the place I really wanted to go because of the research, before applying for the unis. UMich was quite an ambitious college. Most of the professors who I talk to, they all recommend Cornell because they're very aware of its prestige. I'm aware that the job situation is grim for international students in Chemical Engineering. Could you please advise which university would be better for me?
  13. Hi everyone, I recently got admits from UCSD, UCI, UMD, UMich, all MS in CS. None comes with funding. I'm having a hard time making a decision, and really appreciate any help you could provide. For the context, I want to focus on AI/HCI for my MS CS. Because I am an international student, these are my top two priorities to decide: 1. ROI, or career prospect in the US after graduation 2. TA/RA opportunities, anything to help with the cost These are general feelings I had from reading through the internet and department websites (the only source I had), please correct me if any is wrong: - UCSD: the Design Lab, Prof. Don Norman, Scott Klemmer - UCI: Big school of CS & informatics, lots of professors, more resource (?) - UMD: Research oriented, big HCI, Good TA/RA opportunities* - UMich: Good AI, overall CS rep (I got Texas A&M and CU Boulder, but will probably choose from 4 schools above. Please add anything that comes to your mind.) Thank you very much.
  14. Is there any whatsapp group for students joining MS, CEE (civil and environmental engineering) carnegie mellon university in fall 2018??
  15. So which of the two is better? MS ECE in NCSU vs MEng ECE Virginia Tech. I chose these mainly for embedded systems, but in a dilemma now. Course wise NCSU is spread out while Virginia tech is specific to certain areas but both are good in heir own way. Please suggest tips on how to proceed or suggest which school to choose. It would also great if someone told about each of the programs at these schools in general.

    ASU MSME vs UH MSME

    ADMITS, REJECTS, PENDING... University of Houston Mechanical MS vs ASU Mechanical MS. Which will be a better choice considering am interested in research after MS. Like funding opportunities and etc? Houston is also far cheaper and offering a $1k Scholarship. Thanks for the help
  17. Hey! So which is the better university for masters in communication theory and systems? UCLA or UCSD? TIA
  18. Applied for MS in CS. So I just received an acceptance from: UNCC GSU Universities yet to reply: UofM UofW (St. Louis) WMU MTU Should I wait or go either one of these? If so, which one???
  19. Hello! I've been accepted into Columbia and UNC's Biostatistics MS programs and I'm having trouble deciding between the two! I'm leaning towards Columbia but it worries me that their Stats department is apparently not well regarded. Does this reputation extend to their Biostats department, even though their department is still in the top 10? I know that UNC is a better program overall and has more renowned professors, but if my end goal is to pursue a PhD, does it matter where I get my MS? Cost is not a strong factor because I consider living in NYC to be a once in a lifetime opportunity. I am also more interested in eventually working in industry if that helps. (I've heard that Columbia has more ties in industry and UNC is more theoretical with difficult quals) Thanks so much for any replies!
  20. I was admitted to both with no funding and as a non-resident. It looks like UW would be the better financial decision if I can find a TA-ship (full tuition waiver vs. half-waiver at UCSD with a TA-ship), but I'm also getting the sense that UCSD tends to make the MS-to-PhD transition easier and that it might be easier to find a TA position at UCSD. Does anyone have any information about whether it's really difficult to find a TA position at UW (the admissions site suggests so) and if I'm correct in thinking a UCSD MS may give me a better shot at getting into the UCSD PhD program down the line? Also, does anyone know how coursework compares between the two programs?
  21. Would be delighted to know if anyone got through the design Impact program. If possible pls connect on mail - ivymuk2010@gmail.com
  22. I have received admits from these colleges for fall 2018

    Late applications

    Is there anyone browsing who still has at least one application to be submitted or recently submitted? I'd love to talk and know.
  24. I got an admission for MS in Electrical Engineering programs from UCLA, UIUC and UT Austin. I am not sure which one should I go for. I am interested in VLSI circuits and systems. I want this decision to be made considering the following factors: 1. Reputation of school in the field of electrical engineering 2. Future job prospects 3. Quality and level of research and professors 4. Financial aid easiness in the university 5. University's inclination to Electrical Engineering, especially VLSI, Power Electronics and machine learning (and the extent of inter disciplinary encouragement of different engineering departments) Please help in selecting. Thank You
