  1. Hello, Any news from UC santa cruz Phd in chemistry? After the interview weekend the program coordinator said in her follow up email that grad division was going to send admission decision on March 24. But till now I have not received anything from grad decision.
  2. UC Santa Cruz MA/C

    Hey! Curious if anyone out there applied for UC Santa Cruz's MA/C program for summer 2017? Let's wait together! I'd love to hear which credential you seek and what your application was like. It's only been one day since app's were due and I'm already so stressed!
  3. anybody applying to Visual Studies Santa Cruz? News? interview? anything??
  4. I've read through a few of these threads, and the common theme seems to be people who clearly (from an outsider's perspective) already know what they want coming to that realization on their own by hearing input from others. I am. Possibly already decided, but certainly don't feel that way. I've been accepted to UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, Northwestern, and CU Boulder for CS PhD programs. As far as I can see, here is how things breakdown. Stipends are comparable at each school: UC Berkeley Area: I don't love NorCal (I lived in the area for ~7 years so I'm pretty familiar), but there are a TON of opportunities to get involved with startups in the area. Research fit: AWESOME, I'd work on super wacky stuff the likes of which I haven't seen at other places. I also love the prof BUT he can be EXTREMELY difficult to get in touch with. That's been a problem for me in the past - I'm independent, but I don't like to be completely abandoned. Prestige: Super high obviously. Long-term prospects: Name recognition through the roof, plus I'd likely already develop relationships with awesome industry companies. Focus: Developing new platforms. UC Santa Cruz Area: Again, NorCal, not my fave, but off in the woods seems like a better fit for me. Still plenty of great access to the startups and so forth in the area. Research fit: Also AWESOME. I'd be working with a professor who does super wacky stuff that's right up my alley. I've felt the strongest "gut fit" with this prof. Prestige: Not so great? Long-term prospects: I'd develop some strong relationships that could take me far, and doing research that I'm super interested in sounds excellent. Focus: Playful technology / user-centered design / games CU Boulder Area: My absolute favorite place by far, hands down. Living here would be a joy every day. Some tech startup activity in the area, but probably not much compared to the Bay Area. Research fit: EXCELLENT. Very interdisciplinary campus, new program ramping up (I tend to thrive in slightly chaotic environments like this as long as I'm given the power to change things). Prestige: Not so great? Long-term prospects: Craft technology / schools Northwestern Area: Chicago, big cities just aren't my thing. BUT, they do have opportunities, and I'd do work in museums, and possibly with some amazing performing groups there. Research fit: Great, I think? I'm questioning my commitment to the focus here, but until super recently I was way gung-ho about it. Prestige: Excellent. Long-term prospects: I'd build relationships with museums, since that's the main focus of the lab. Anyway, there's no clear winner here to me, at least. I...I'm not even sure what I'm asking for... I guess I'm just hoping that if I type this all out, someone will be able to hold up a mirror to what I've said and help me see my own hopes and dreams more clearly. Here's a question I guess: How does CU Boulder rank as compared with Santa Cruz or Northwestern?
