Hi, I’m a Dutch computer science major. Over the last couple of months, I have been developing my statement of purposes for the universities which I will be applying to. I'm finally at a point where I feel confident enough about my SOPs that I am willing to share it with people outside my family and references. My transcript and GRE scores aren’t anywhere near what I had hope so a solid SOP is really important. My average is a 7.6 on a 10-point scale which translate to roughly a 3.4 – 3.6 GPA. My GRE is V:155, Q:163 and W:4.5. For my letter of recommendations, I have found the following references: 1. Associate Professor whom I will be assisting in research starting next month. He gave the project I did during his course last year a 10. 2. Lecturer of the courses “Computer Architecture” and “Information Security”, I received good grades in both. He is not a professor but he is well known for his course on C++. 3. Associate Professor in machine learning. He is well known for his work in Vector Quantization. Did part of his MS. at the University of Washington. I am mostly interested in the research areas of CS Theory and AI/ML. Ideally, I would like to combine them both. I will be applying to the Ph.D. or MS. program at UCB, UW, GATech, UCSB, Toronto and Montreal. If all my applications would be unsuccessful I will probably continue with a master’s degree at my current university in the Netherlands. This is a top 100 school with a solid machine learning track, since I am guaranteed to be accepted here I decided to aim high. I’m looking for as much feedback on my SOP as possible, but I understand that it might nog be beneficial to post it here directly. I would be very appreciative if I could DM it to some people. Additionally, does anyone know of more platforms that could assist me in getting feedback on my SOP, free or paid? Thank you.
Hello all! I'm new to this forum and this is my first post here. I'm in a bit of a dilemma so I thought I'd ask you guys because I've been going over the posts on this forum and you all give some great advice! Basically, I've applied to about 8 schools for my Master's in Aerospace Engineering (Aerodynamics in particular) and I've gotten accepted to 2 of them. I'm still waiting to hear from the rest. I've received admits from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft, Netherlands) and University of Illinois - Urbana Champaign (unofficial, but still). Both great schools but I have not received funding offers from either of them. The cost of attending TU Delft (incl. living) is about half of that of UIUC, but I'm pretty sure chances of getting an RA/TA in UIUC would be much higher as TU Delft requires their RAs/TAs to speak Dutch, which I do not. Assuming I get no funding from the remaining offers as well (keeping my expectations low so as to not be disappointed), it really boils down to a US vs. Netherlands debate. Most of the schools I have applied to in the US have around the same cost, so I can safely say that I'll be paying half of what I would in the US, at TU Delft. However, I am also sure that my chances of getting an RA/TA would be much higher in the US, than in the Netherlands. What do you all think I should do? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
Hi guys, I have been accepted on to the Msc Economic Policy program at the Erasmus School of Economics. I was wondering if anyone else has also had an offer? Has anyone already graduated from the University? What is the course like, and what were your job prospects afterwards? Regards, Amino
