  1. So here's the dilemma: I'm a pure math guy who's mostly interested in theoretical computer science, but also partly interested in theoretical machine learning. I've been accepted with similar funding yada yada to both UCLA and UC Irvine's CS PhD programs. The professor at UC Irvine more so matches my interests (graph theory, approximation algorithms, pure math-y stuff) and he's also highly distinguished, coming off a 15 year stint doing theory at Georgia Tech. The professor at UCLA is more engineering focused. There's a few questions I need answers to influencing my decision: How important is the prestige of a university compared to the prestige of one's research advisor when it comes to securing faculty positions? How easy is it at UCLA (or in general) to either co-advise with another department (theory) or switch entirely, and would this affect funding offers? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Anyone know if interview invites have been sent out? Haven't heard anything from UCLA. Any information is appreciated!
  3. Hi everyone! So I'm seeing results start to get posted for other bio programs at UCLA but haven't seen/heard anything for Molecular, Cellular & Integrative Physiology... Does anyone have any experience/information about this program's timeline? The website just says "interviews will be in February". For those who also applied to a physiology program at any UC, what did your stats look like?
  4. Hey everyone, Could anyone familiar with UCLA's sociology department help me out with a quick question on the SOP word limit? The division-wide application portal says up to 500 words allowed, but since this is so much lower than the requirement for all other sociology departments I'm applying to it struck me as odd. I also happened to read someone's statement for UCLA that went significantly over that (1000+ words) from a few years ago who was accepted (I didn't get the statement directly from them so I feel weird to reach out and ask them myself about this). The sociology department website also doesn't specify one way or another, just defers to the "prompts on the application portal". I know people advise to stick to the word limit for these things, and that it doesn't look good to the admissions committee if you don't, but I was wondering if anyone specifically familiar with UCLA's sociology admissions might be able to advise on how they view this (I already tried to contact their office but it's closed until monday/past the deadline on sunday). Or anyone not at UCLA: if there's a word limit set division-wide, do admissions committee necessarily default to that? Or if this isn't addressed specifically on the department's website may they not abide by it too strictly? Reallyyy stressing out about this as deadline is Sunday so any advice would be helpful! 🙏🙏🙏Thank you!
  5. Hi everyone, i'm a new grad student starting a PhD-biosciences program this Fall 2019. I look forward to meeting everyone - anyone else going to UCLA this fall?
  6. Hey y'all, Currently a second-year student at UCLA, who has an overall GPA of 2.477 (2.965 Major GPA) and no research experience at my current institution. Do I have some hope in getting accepted to a Social Psych Ph.D. program (e.g., the UCs) in the future? To begin with, I don't know where to start, nor do I know if I have the right mentality to apply (and even handle the rigors of graduate school)... Ever since I transferred from a community college to UCLA, I became more anxious and lacked the confidence to ask for help from my peers. I'm even embarrassed to apply for research positions, knowing that I'll get rejected because of other applicants who have higher GPAs and are more experienced. 😕 Any tips/suggestions, and has anyone ever been in a similar situation?
  7. I have got master of science offer in chemical engineering program of Cornell University and UCLA. I intend to get PhD, most likely staying in the same school. Any good recommendation?
  8. Hello! I’m a Nursing Home Administrator and am in my decision process of choosing the right masters program for the Fall. UCLA eMPH and CSULB MSHCA-AP both accepted me, however, I’m not sure which school/ program is best for me. I’ve evaluated the course schedule, faculty, alumni, cost, time, and distance. UCLA has always been my dream school due to its prestige. Conversely, choosing UCLA would mean commuting to LA from OC every other week, taking Fridays off for classes, and hopefully crashing the night at an apartment so I don’t have to drive back the following day. CSULB has it’s pros and cons as well- it’s a hybrid program, so I would only need to commute every Saturday and the other half of the program is online. The drive is only about 20 mins to CSULB vs an hour to UCLA. CSULB is also a third of the cost compared to UCLA. So now the question is- which school and program should I choose and that it would be most applicable to my career in working with older adults as a Nursing Home Administrator? All thoughts are appreciated!
  9. Hello, I am currently a 4th year undergrad at UCLA studying materials engineering. I need to decide whether to stay at UCLA or head off to Cornell for a masters in materials engineering. I am quite sure I do not want to do a PhD and want to set myself up to be able to get a job either in aerospace/automotive or electronics/semiconductor industries in CA. I was wondering if anyone had any firsthand experiences with the Cornell M. Eng program, or if anyone had any thoughts/advice/tips? UCLA (MS) would be the easy comfortable choice to make but it would be a good opportunity to go out of my comfort zone and go to an Ivy League. I’m just hoping that Cornell will adequately prepare me and help jumpstart my career: are cornell’s internships/projects rewarding and comprehensive enough to better myself as an engineer and will it’s geographic distance from CA impact my job search? cornell is a 1 year program + maybe additional summer session and UCLA is a 3-5 quarter program which will take 1-1.5 years

  11. Someone I know is trying to decide between a photography MFA at Yale or UCLA. Are there any informed opinions out there, perhaps from current students of these programs or recent graduates? The programs are so nearly equal in his mind – he likes the prestige factor at Yale and prefers to live on the East coast. UCLA has a great program too and he appreciates the interdisciplinary-ness. Yale has a reputation for molding students whereas UCLA seems to operate with a lot more freedom for the student, which he likes. He wants to teach and UCLA offers that opportunity. Both have offered nearly equal funding. Thanks so much, appreciate any input.
  12. Hello everyone! I got an admit for MS in EE into UCLA, UCSD and TAMU. I want to major in RFIC (if I do a PhD: would want something where I can find it's applications in the Medical domain) and am confused which school to choose. Right now I'm aiming for the terminal Masters program but didint want to shut the door on a PhD completely. I am hoping to petition and switch to a PhD program if I end up liking the lab, advisor, peer group and research work after I join the MS program. But for now these are some of the pros and cons I could find . UCLA Pros: Better ranked than all of the other three and thus a better name If I end with a Master's degree. Amazing professors in RF like Razavi, Abidi and a ton of other such folks Cons: Follows the quarter system which makes the coursework really hectic(?). Also nearly 2-2.5x more expensive than TAMU UCSD Pros: Again amazing research in RF, Qualcomm which is one of the biggest in RF has a whole research institute in the campus, and who doesn't Sandiego as a city, right? Cons: Very little to no scope of funding for MS students, Also follows the quarter system and is also nearly 2-2.5x more expensive than TAMU TAMU Pros: Really couldn't find a lot here, but from whatever I heard the coursework in Analog and RF is really good (?) Cons: Really cheap and also has the possibility of getting funding -might even graduate debt free (maybe an overstatement 😛)- From my rudimentary analysis it looks like the choice is between UCLA and UCSD only But any suggestions, inputs or comments will be of great help! Thanks
  13. Hello Everyone! I am a bit worried to decide between schools. My background is computational chemistry and computational material science and I been accepted into the following schools : 1) UCLA-Chemical Engineering 2) EPFL-Chemistry and chemical engineering 3) Oxford-Chemistry (still waiting for funding ) I am a bit distressed about what to choose. Can you please help me out here? Any kind of help would be very appreciated! Thank you so much in advance!
  14. I have gotten admission offers from both UCLA and UCSD for MS in ECE. UCLA is for Signals and Systems track, and UCSD is for Communication Theory. As evident from the MS specialisation, I am interested in Signals & Systems and Communication Theory. I feel course wise both schools are at par. I am interested in knowing how are the prospects of finding internships are jobs henceforth. If anyone had a similar choice to make, what and why did you choose one over another?
  15. I was recently accepted into: MS Astronautical Engineering from USC MS Mechanical Engineering from Columbia MS Astronautics from Purdue MS Aerospace Engineering from UCLA These are all fully online degrees that will have no difference with the in class degrees and they will be fully funded by my employer. I am having trouble choosing between the four. I understand the program reputation and advisor/professor quality outweighs school reputation but I'm stuck on finding out how to compare those things. Which do you think would be the best of the four? I know technically Purdue is ranked the highest of them all for graduate engineering so it would make sense if it had the best course quality but it is not a huge name on the west coast. And I've also heard the Purdue is for engineers that strictly want to do engineering (not venture into business, management, consulting.) For now engineering is my plan but I don't want the other paths to be closed for me) Columbia has the Ivy league tag and is the most prestigious but I'm not sure if this applies to its graduate engineering program. USC and UCLA are basically head to head in California and between the two I'm leaning towards USC because I like the program more. USC also has an amazing alumni network in california shich would be helpful. Any suggestions?
  16. Forum for Fall 2019 MSW Applicants to UCLA!! Post questions about the applications, stats for yourself, or notify us when you hear something from UCLA!!
  17. Hello everyone: I am trying to decide between UCLA and UCSF for a Biochemistry PhD and I would appreciate any input. Does anyone know which place has better success for academic vs industry employment and what the reputation is at both locations? Both programs have great research, advisers, and students. Thank you everyone in advance for your input!

  19. Hello! I've been accepted to UCLA and wait listed at UC Berkeley for the Masters in Social Welfare program beginning this Fall. I am over the moon but also a bit at a crossroads. It seems that near everyone I speak to have a strong lean toward UCB and I wonder how much of it is due to name recognition and prestige over the program itself or the potential fit it might be. UCB is the main reason I began to apply to graduate programs, but UCLA seems like it would potentially be a better fit. I am deadset on UCLA but am WELL aware that I might be thrown for a loop if I am offered admission to UC Berkeley. Do any social workers here have feedback on what you believe are some of the strongest points of draw backs to these programs? I see a lot of positives and honestly, not much draw back aside from not having too much formal experience conducting research. Thank you!
  20. I was recently accepted into: MS Astronautical Engineering from USC MS Mechanical Engineering from Columbia MS Astronautics from Purdue MS Aerospace Engineering from UCLA These are all fully online degrees that will have no difference with the in class degrees and they will be fully funded by my employer. I am having trouble choosing between the four to find a balance between course quality and reputation. Course quality so I actually learn something useful and reputation so it helps me look more impressive compared to other equally qualified job applicants. I will most likely stay on the West Coast if that matters. Which do you think would be the best of the four? I know technically Purdue is ranked the highest of them all for graduate engineering so it would make sense if it had the best course quality but it is not a huge name and I feel like the other 3 would be chosen over Purdue becuase of their reputation and prestige. Columbia has the Ivy league tag and is the most prestigious but I'm not sure if this applies to its graduate engineering program. USC and UCLA are basically head to head in California and between the two I'm leaning towards USC because I like the program more. Any suggestions?
  21. I know it's early but has anyone received a decision from UCLA MSW program?
  22. Anyone hear back yet? Based on last year's results, it looks like people were notified on the 27th (Monday), so was expecting to hear back today.
  23. Hey all, I applied to UCLA last week and had some weirdness happen. I submitted on Dec 1st around 9PM PST, with the deadline at 11:59 PM PST that day. After I submitted, I reopened the portal and it lists my submission date as Dec 2nd. It was listing it as Dec 2nd when it was legit still Dec 1st. I emailed the dept but no answer. Should I be nervous about this? Does it matter? A postdoc told me it wont mater since they dont look at this stuff until after break anyway, but I was wondering if anyone else had this issue.
  24. these two schools acceptance rates and other stats seem almost exactly the same, i noticed that ucla is higher in the rankings tho. For a computer science grad student, which school is harder to get into?
  25. So I'm currently applying for an MFA in film production at UCLA and in the guidelines they don't indicate anything about a personal history statement, however in the application form it seems that we are required to fill it. There are no specific guidelines given and I'm very confused as to how to approach it. I feel like it will sound like my statement of purpose...
