  1. Material sciences and engineering EPFL vs UCSB help...please.. where should I go best?
  2. I'm starting this thread so that we can get to know each other and (hopefully) see each other on interview day! The application deadline was due today and I am so relieved that my letters of recommendation were able to be submitted on time. Now, all we have to do is wait it out! I read online that we should be hearing about interviews in December or January, so best of luck to all of us!
  3. I have applied to the Graduate Program in Mathematics at UCSB for the Fall 2021 admission cycle. In my UCSB online application portal, I have been assigned a "Perm number" which wasn't there before the deadline of application, i.e., January 2, 2021. What does it mean? Does it have to do anything with my admission status? Can anyone let me know please? Thank you!
  4. Is anyone else applying to UCSB's clinical/counseling psychology program? if so, how many pages is your statement of purpose? the overall grad programs website said it should be longer than 2 pages, but when i emailed the department admissions they said 1-2 pages double spaced... my current SOP for them is about 2.5 pages. i'm struggling with the ambiguity!!
  5. Hello everyone! I'm planning to apply to doctoral programs in counseling psychology in the fall and am currently looking into some programs. I noticed on UCSB's website that they have a writing sample requirement. But, when I looked more into it, all they say regarding this requirement is: The writing sample is based on your research experience; either research on the job, a research project, or a class paper. There is no length limit, but should be substantial enough to show yourself to be competitive. Faculty are looking for strong writing skills and place more emphasis on the context of
  6. Hi, I have received admits from both these universities. Considering the fact that Santa Barbara rent is on the higher side (living is double of Blacksburg rent), and has only 50% waiver if you get TA, unlike Tech which gives full waiver, but UCSB has a great systems research group compared to tech. I am inclined towards systems + ml research. Which university would you suggest? I am inclined to go to UCSB, but I don't know if the higher cost justify the research group and the location.
  7. I got admits from UCSB, USC, UCI and TAMU for thesis based MS in ECE/EE depts. I am an international student and from the uni websites I gathered that Unis like TAMU and UCI look like their main focus is in wireless communications. My specific research interests are more towards statistical signal processing and ML. Can you guys help me get a perspective on these colleges regarding the research, their domains and the best college fit for me?
  8. Hi there! I got MS CS admits from these 4 colleges. Want to decide which should I choose. I am planning to specialize in Computer Vision/Machine Learning. Would love to hear your suggestions. Thanks!
  9. Hi all, Well I got into UCSB in Physics and I am really excited, I wanted to see if anyone else is feeling the same thing. So is anyone else here going to UCSB this fall for Physics? Excited? Any idea where you are going to live in Santa Barbara?
  10. Hello, I would appreciate thoughts regarding graduate school decisions/comments from people in the same boat. Interested in environmental policy and potentially private sector consulting or NGO work. Accepted to: GWU - Environmental Resource Policy, Trachtenberg School ($10k/year fellowship) Still waiting on a decision from UCSB Bren MESM. Obviously this could all be for nothing depending on decision from Bren, but going into this process I regarded UCSB Bren as my #1 choice due to program respect in the environmental field, location (Santa Barbara sounds nice), etc. Howe
  11. Got acceptance offers from Yale and UCSB Chemistry Grad programs for fall 2018. I am an international student applied from an unknown undergrad school. I had a Skype talk with the professor from UCSB physics and I loved the projects and his attitude. Then, Yale accepted me. I like two or three labs there but I am kind of stuck with the other lab. Am i being close minded? I will possibly find something fascinating in Yale but the other lab was amazing. Anyone with similar experiences or who has visited both places? If I go to UCSB what would I miss that Yale would offer?
  12. Does anybody know if all decisions have been made at UCSB for the Education PhD program? I saw one person nominated for fellowships list an acceptance on the results page last week, and the school website mentions that Admit Day will take place on February 5th, but other than that it has been radio silence. In previous cycles it looks like rejections have gone out about the same time as acceptances so I don't know what to think. Has anybody else heard from them? Starting to get worried...

  14. Hi all, I am having the most difficult time deciding between UC Santa Barbara and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign for PhD in mechanical engineering. Here is a pro/con list for both schools that I made: UCSB -- Pros: Awesome adviser, flexibility in choosing adviser, full funding, great research project which is unexplored, great weather, beaches and mountains, close to LA, will be involved in both computational and experimental work (which I wanted) Cons: Very high cost of living, not as prestigious as UIUC UIUC -- Pros: Known as one of the best eng pr
  15. Hi all, I've been having a hell of a time choosing which school to attend for my PhD in geology this fall. I have full funding at both schools. My dilemma is that I like the advisor and my would-be lab mates at UC Davis more than at UCSB, but I like the research more at UCSB than at UC Davis. Also I think the quality of life is just higher in Santa Barbara. Does any one have any advice? Thanks!
  16. Hi everyone, I am looking for some help. So I have these two admissions for 2017 Fall programs: USC MS ECE, Wireless Networks track; UCSB MS ECE, Communications, Control and Signal Processing track; My undergraduate major was EE with little emphasis on telecommunications. Personally I enjoy studying wireless networks and the Internet of Things, and I plan to look for internships in relevant industries. I realised this after completing my undergraduate final project, when the application was already finished. Now it seems I should try to change my emphasis to Computer Engi
  17. Hi everybody I applied to Bren back in January and am still waiting to hear back from them a month later. I know that they say they will get back to us 'before March 17th' but I'm wondering if anybody has heard back or knows from experience or research if there is a chance that they will get back to everyone sooner. 2 months is such a long waiting period! Applied: UCSB Bren School (MESM), CSU GSSE MBA, Bard College CEP (Climate Science & Policy) Accepted: CSU, Bard No Response: UCSB
  18. Like many of us, I have been waiting patiently (or not so patiently) to hear back from grad schools, specifically UCSB. Has anyone heard back from the UCSB Earth Science Ph.D program, or know when they have sent decisions in the past? Thanks all
  19. Hi Everyone, I just wanted to make a thread regarding the Chancellor's Fellowship that is offered at the UC schools. When I was accepted into UCSB, I was informed that I was nominated for the Chancellor's Fellowship, which is a central university allocated fellowship. I tried looking online for information regarding the fellowship and the process of receiving it, but couldn't find much, so I wanted to share the information that I have now that I received it. Congrats and goodluck if you're in this situation! I'd like to preface that this information is not verified as being true, but
  20. Hi guys, I want to hear your opinions. I am right now a master student at UCLA, I have been working on my research in optics for nearly a year and will possibly transfer to PhD program. Also I got admission from UCSB, photonics track. I am really not sure which one to choose. UCSB has one of the best program in photonics in the world, but I am not really familiar with the topic. Life at UCSB should be cheaper and more relax than UCLA. On the other hand, I feel really awkward to tell my advisor that I would leave the group and I feel comfortable with my PI and my group memb
  21. Hi guys, Did anyone receive invitation for campus visit at UCSB ECE department? Also, how is this related to admission or offer? Thanks, if you also will go campus, we can do together!
  22. How selective is admissions for the Doctoral program in Global Affairs at UCSB? any application advice to have a better chance at acceptance? undergrad 3.3 from division 2 school, research experience, currently doing a masters degree
  23. I have recently been admitted into the Materials PhD programme at UC Santa Barbara. Whilst I am aware that it has been highly ranked by several bodies, I would like a more educated opinion from people here. Is it really as good as they say it is? I am slightly worried as I am an international student. The reputation of UCSB isn't very significant outside of the US and I am hoping I am making the right decision to invest at least 5 years of my life there
  24. I was accepted into the MS programs for both of these schools, and offered a $5000 one-time fellowship at UCSD. My interests are in Digital Signal Processing and Embedded Systems, and I have a particular interest in Medical Devices. Speaking with administrators at UCSD, I got the impression that funding for MS students is very unlikely, as are TA positions. However, there is a medical device research group that really appeals to me, and a few others that seem reasonably interesting. Unfortunately, I emailed the director of the medical device lab (after I was accepted) and he didn't even r
  25. Hi everyone! I posted here before but I have an update on my decisions... a. Tuition grant + living stipend (it's a small amount=$5000) for 2 years at the RSEA M.A. program at Harvard b. Tuition+living stipend (12K)for my first year but I would have to TA every year (guaranteed TA-ship for only 4 years) at the EALC PhD program at UCSB Thanks! I'm having trouble deciding however...
