  1. Northwestern has already offered me a fully-funded package while Columbia simply mean more debt. Right now, my decision has brought about a serious conflict between what my mind wants (the economic convenience and flexibility presented by Northwestern) and what my heart desires (the academic prestige, rigor, faculty, and of course, the city lifestyle presented by Columbia). I already visited Northwestern's campus and the greater Chicago area last month as part of the recruiting event; I was able to spend time with the other accepted students (there were about 5-6 of us), the faculty, and even
  2. I recently finished the application season (Masters) and have the following acceptances: UCSD, Duke, Columbia, Boston University, Northwesterm These are amongst others (Yale, Berkeley, Cornell, Michigan, UCLA, etc.) however they were either one year or non-thesis programs, or the university's main focus was not BME so I have decided to throw those out. Again if you think that isn't a wise decision please let me know. I have also been waitlisted at Hopkins, and am looking to accept that should I get in. Anyone familiar with these schools that can help me out? I am looking ve
  3. Hi everyone. I applied and heard back from them the second week of January. The interview was from February 5th-8th. It is a very small program, of 10 individuals invited to interview there will only be 2 spots available for PhD students. They told me that top contenders would be extended offers within the first two weeks following the interview. As of now, I have not heard back.
  4. I'm anxiously awaiting my decision from Northwestern. I believe this is a pretty small program, and I haven't seen anyone talk about it yet this year! Has anyone heard anything?
  5. Does anyone know when will NW Master of Analytics admissions team send out interview invitations? Thanks!
  6. Hi! I just committed to a PhD program in materials science at Northwestern. Are there any other students who will be attending Northwestern in the fall (in any field)? I currently live in Phoenix and will be moving there in August. I'd also be interested in getting to know other students moving to the Chicago area.
  7. I got accepted to NU and UIUC for a fully funded PhD in Mechanical engineering plus stipend. I was first accepted to UIUC and attended the visit day. I have had a great time, met amazing people and faculty, and in general, liked the department. Moreover, I went on another visit day at Madison Wisconsin a week later and immediately knew that Champaign was a better fit for me and I almost committed. However, I hated Champaign (the town) and was hoping to get into another school in a better location. Finally, four days before I need to make a decision, I got into Northwestern which is in Chicago
  8. Between Brown Biotechnology (Master) and Northwestern Biotechnology (Master), what should I choose?
  9. Hi everyone! Could you give some advice about choosing a Master's degree in Biotechnology between Upenn or Northwestern? Or could you share some of your experiences in either of the two programs? I really don't know where to go… About myself, I prefer to pursue a PhD after the Master's degree (for now) instead of entering the industry. But I've heard that the program in Upenn is more industry-oriented, and I haven't gathered enough information about NU...Most of my information comes from the program websites, so I would like to hear more about your opinions and experiences! I will be
  10. I'm super excited to have been accepted here but am kinda panicking about the tuition. Northwestern was my top choice but I'm not sure I want to be in that much debt! But I also don't want to regret not going since it was my top choice!! Anyone else feeling the same or know how current/past students are managing to pay?
  11. Hi Everyone, I've been asked to interview for Masters in Analytics at Northwestern. Can someone throw light on following question: 1) General format of interview 2) Highly technical? 3) Resume and past projects based? 4) Will they be checking my maths and programming knowledge. (Scared coz I'm a little out of touch) This is my first ever interview and I don't want to screw it up as this program is my dream univ. P.S - I reached out to previous students but no luck there. P.S - Went through threads of Masters interview but could not find a relevant one.
  12. For a person inclined towards applied theory, which is a better grad school Columbia or NWU ?
  13. Hey guys, I am going to be starting grad school this fall so I'm wondering if anyone wants to share an apartment in Evanston or nearby. I am a 23 yr old male, pretty tidy, looking to live walking or biking distance from campus. Let me know if you're interested in sharing an apartment!
  14. I am trying to decide between two MS Biostatistics programs and am wondering if anyone can offer insight. 1. Boston University MS Applied Biostatistics. This is a 12 month (full time) program is in a School of Public Health, but incorporates a research component (500 hours total). 2. Northwestern University MS Biostatistics. This is also a 12 month (full time) program in the School of Medicine. My goal is to work as a data analyst in a hospital or university, with specific interests in clinical epidemiology. Although I’m still open to pursuing a PhD (most
  15. Hello, gradcafe! I am making a difficult decision. For my SLP master's I must choose between Rush and Northwestern. Rush is $40,000 cheaper than Northwestern, which begs the question, is Northwestern worth 40K more? Will I have a higher earning potential if I go to Northwestern? Is it that much better of a program? Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you:) C
  16. Hi, I feel a bit too new to open a new topic, but here goes. I just checked on the status page that someone got an interview for cs & ls. Oh no. I am freaking out as this is the first or at least second school on my wishlist and also had thought as application deadlines were so late, that interview emails would come later this month. Plus I saw past posts that said the interviews were on feb! Did anyone else get emails? Does NU send out interview emails over a longer period than just a day? I'm extremely anxious and completely unable to focus on anything else, HELP!
  17. Is there anyone else applying to the same program? I submitted mine in late November and haven't heard a thing yet. Has anyone gotten an interview already? I'm literally freaking out right now.
  18. Hi, Anyone past or present get accepted into both programs? What was your decision? What factored into your decision? Thanks in advance!
  19. Hi all, I just received my admission from Northwestern IMC and am facing difficulties deciding on which program to choose. As UT Austin is a newer program, there doesn't seem to be many posts on the program so I was wondering if anyone could provide any insights that can help me toward deciding! I have accepted my admission at UT Austin and paid a deposit of 2000$, and even finished my career services interview. I thought I didn't have a chance to get into Northwestern, but it turns out I got admitted the last day of being on the waitlist! It's very hard of a decision as the tui
  20. Hi, Could I please get some thoughts on deciding where to accept? Living standards, preferences, money aside - I just want to gather which department people find better. I am leaning towards macro in my studies. In my opinion, they are fairly similar in rankings. I know that some people are much better informed about the development of the departments. Do you think in 5 years NYU will be better than NW? As of now it seems NW is still a bit more prestigious but NYU is rising? I know it is not an easy question and it "really depends" but I am sure that you understand I am just try
  21. Hey all, I'm writhing in the end throes of application-cycle purgatory over here and was hoping for a little bit of advice. (Going for an MFA in Creative Writing - Fiction.) I've been accepted to Northwestern's MFA program so far. However, it's a part-time program, which means funding is limited or nonexistent. The part-time thing isn't really a deal-breaker for me; I was planning on working during school anyway, so in that sense it might be a good fit for me. I am worried, though that I won't get the full MFA experience that I'm looking for. I'm also not opposed to taking out m
  22. Can anyone give me insight into which school would be better to attend/some pros and cons of each?
  23. I graduated from the George Washington University, majoring in International Affairs, now seeking for graduate studies to solidify my knowledge and apply some practical skills. I applied several schools for 2017 spring. Now I am deciding between two schools: NYU vs. Northwestern University. I am writing down some of my comments here for your reference and I would love to hear feedbacks from current student or past graduates since I can only find limited information on those two programs. NYU: Master of Science in Global Affairs. First of all, NYC is an international hub for glo
  24. Hey all! I'm super excited to say that I've been accepted to Columbia, CUNY, and Medill. However I am extremely less excited to say that I'm wracked with indecision on where to attend. To give a little background about myself, I'm currently finishing up my undergrad in Pennsylvania. While there, I wrote extensively for an alternative news site and interned for my area's local NPR affiliate. I've lived on the east coast my entire life. After j-school, I'm hoping to go into audio production with a public radio station or a podcast. I'd like to live in New York City. If anyone has any
  25. Is anyone here considering Northwestern? Or has already decided on Northwestern? I'm visiting during one of the open houses and wanted to know people's thoughts on this program!
