  1. 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:
  2. Hiii everyone, I have applied for many 19 Fall's MSE/BME Ph.D. programs, and my research interests are mainly in the field of biomaterials/biosensing. But it is February now and there is no good news. So I would like to seek MSE/BME Master programs that have not yet reached the deadline. If any of them are thesis-based, it would be better! Any relevant information or suggestions are welcome. Thank you so much!
  3. Hi all! I could really use some help. I am working towards my BS/MS in Biomedical Engineering, thesis option. I want to pursue my PhD in MSE with a focus on biomaterials, particularly for diagnostics, biomimetics, and drug delivery. GPA: 3.55 (not great) GRE: 161V, 163Q Research: 2 publications (1 first author, 1 2nd), 3 conference presentations, 3 years research at Tier-1 research institution, summer internship at top international uni I will be applying to: University of Minnesota, U of Wisconsin, Boston University, Oregon State, UC Riverside, and maybe Washington State I am hoping to add 1 or 2 safety schools to this list, as I feel I am shooting above where I can realistically get in. I have no problem finding research I am interested in, but I don't know how to tell if I have a decent chance at admission. Also, is there any way to determine likelihood of full funding? I have heard many horror stories lately.
  4. 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
  5. Hi Everyone! Saw a very informative thread with some active discussion for Fall 17 (link above) so thought I should replicate it for Fall 18. Lets get to know each other better!
  6. Can anybody share university rankings by US News for material science and engineering program? Also how good is QS ranking in that regard? Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi everyone! I wanted to create this thread for (Fall 2017) MS operations research, industrial engineering, management science & engineering applicants to get to know each other a little better. Who else is applied this cycle? What are your research interests, and what are some of the schools that you're looking at? I applied to Columbia, MIT, Michigan, Stanford and Univ of Florida
  8. Hello Everyone! I have been accepted to Duke MEM and Columbia MS&E Programs starting Fall'17 and need to decide between the two in next 2 days due to my deadline for deposit. I am EXTREMELY confused between these two schools. My main concern is "Choosing better ranked university or better ranked program"? Both can be completed in 1 calendar year. Duke has no doubt one of the best MEM Programs (ranked 3rd in the world) and huge campus and great university ranking (11/US) but is in Durham NC. Total cost is aprox 75k USD Columbia has the Ivy League tag to it, not known for its MEM but is in NYC and ranked 3-4 points above Duke overall. Total cost is approx 110k USD which is very expensive for me considering I will be an international Student and taking loans for my Masters program. I am from mechanical engineering background who wishes to work as a special consultant in future for engineering firms in fields ranging from Supply Chain, Operations, Innovation technology, Optimizing Manufacturing processes etc. I haven't been to US yet but do not mind NYC or Durham given that I get to network. As the University ranking and Program rankings difference for both negates the other, I would really appreciate your insight on how much does location matter in terms of NYC and Durham for job opportunities? Outside US, people know Columbia better than Duke, Does this hold true within US as well? Does brand value matter to an extent that a similar ranking school which is not as popular but with a better program should be declined? How is the student life at these two schools? How is the MEM faculty, student competitions, work load and alumni network specific to both these programs at these schools? Does Duke being part of MEMPC holds greater relevancy in MEM course for future recruiters? How does the industry collaboration opportunities given to MEM students vary between these schools? Sorry for the long post. I feel regardless of what I choose, at some point I guess I am going to regret not taking the other in some way. As this is something where I am investing all of my life savings, I want to be sure of what I choose. I would really appreciate your honest feedback on above even if you're able to answer just few of my concerns and not all. Thanks a lot for your time!
  9. 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!
  10. I just got admitted to the MSE in ECE with a concentration in Robotics at JHU, I was wondering what is the difference between this program and the MSE in Robotics program there? Will there be any difference concerning access to research opportunities?

  12. I am applying to all of the top engineering schools for my masters, and I was wondering about whether I should go for brute honesty or a little more finesse. I am not yet 100% sure that I want to do research, but I have heard rumors that admissions counselors frown down upon people who do not have a clear vision as to what they are going to do in the future by now. As such, should I stick to trying to spin everything in my SOP about research, or should I blatantly say that I am not yet sure. Also, would it be detrimental if I wrote that I am doing a Masters just to gain more skills, rather than focusing on research?? Again I am talking about the higher ranking schools here, UCSD, GA Tech, Stanford, Johns Hopkins, etc.
  13. Hey Guys, First Post. I was wondering how to tell the competitiveness of the Penn's MSE program before I apply for the March Deadline. The most recent stats has someone with a GPA under 3.4! And then there are two other people, one has a 3.9 and high GRE scores and the other doesn't have any listed stats. Do you think they have a low threshold in accepting people, even if it is Penn? Thanks!
