  1. Hello, I have both the above admits for fall 2020 which I deferred to 2021. I know Berkeley ranks much higher(#3) in Mechanical Engineering than UCSD, but I couldn't find any ranking data related to Fung Institute specifically. How will you compare Berkeley's Fung institute to UCSD's Jacobs school? Also, I will be pursuing non thesis MS at UCSD as I dont want a research oriented career. M.Eng seems a better choice but the ranking of Fung institute compared to Jacobs School, the cost of the program and lack of on campus employment during M.Eng is making me think twice.
  2. Decisions are rolling out. Got a message from the GPS admissions office that my application has been "nominated for admission"! Now I'm just waiting for official communication after review by UC San Diego's Graduate Division. Anyone else got in?
  3. I am a Chinese student and got admitted by CS Sc.M. Brown and CS75 UCSD. UCSD ranks higher in CS and has better location in CA (although not that close to SV), while it admitted too many students which may cause intense competition. Brown has better education quality and good-looking statistics for finding jobs, while its CS ranking and location might be problematic. I want to find a job in tech companies in CA after graduation, and I wonder which one is the better choice. Any suggestion or idea would be appreciated. Thanks!
  4. I have gotten an admit for spring in CMU and for Fall in UCSD in electrical engineering department. i want to specialise in signal and image processing for biomedical applications. considering the fact i wouldn't be able to intern in cmu and its way costlier, can someone tell me which is a better school for research and job opportunities?
  5. Hi all, Looking to talk to people who have been offered the Robertson Fellowship at any of the partner schools (UMD School of Public Policy, UCSD GPS, Tufts Fletcher, Texas A&M Bush School, Syracuse Maxwell School) and/or any current/former students who were Robertson Fellows. I was recently offered this fellowship at SU (!!) and I know the general details (an amazing package, obviously), but formal notification and getting connected with current Fellows have been delayed probably due to COVID-19 (understandably).
  6. 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
  7. Hello everyone, I got a offer from UCSD. It is a master program with medical specification of Bioengineering. (MS.Med) How is it different from the regular master program? Can I apply for transition to phD with this program? I knew that UCSD is really good at bioengineering, is it the same for such master program too? Since I have a really bad GPA and not-so-good LOR and PS, I am really worried that this is a program designed for moneybags... I would appreciate for any information and advice.
  8. I am an international student, applying to UCSD's BMS program, and I submitted the pre-application. Has anyone heard back yet? I know it's still early in October, but I can't help but worry.
  9. Hi there, I am reaching out to seek advice on two offers I have. I am an international student and had applied for mechanical engineering grad programs. My options are: 1. UCSD PhD admit (unfunded). 2. UW Seattle, MS (No funding). I'm bit inclined towards working in Industry post-grad. I am weighing my options between schools as follows: UCSD Pros: 1. Better located for jobs in Mechanical Engineering (not too sure about this) 2. Program is better ranked than UW (acc. US news, not much difference) 3. Might have better chances of getting funding though TA as it is a
  10. Im am looking at IR and policy policy masters and looking to work as a government analyst, private sector (consulting or political risk) or at an NGO. I eventually want to earn a policy oriented or political science PHD 5 to 10 years down the road. I was accepted to Pittsburgh (GSPIA, MIPA security and intelligence), Denver (Korbel, MIS), and UCSD (GPS, MPP). My aid situation is as follows: DU-Korbel 30k (15k a year but still the most expensive) Pitt-GSPIA 28k (14k a year and the cheapest school
  11. 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!
  12. My top offers (PhD) currently are Johns Hopkins CMM and UCSD BMS. I want to study cancer genomics/immunotherapy. Not a big fan of Baltimore but Hopkins is pretty elite. UCSD BMS is top 10ish as well but I don't think it has the same reputation. I think I want to pursue a career in academia and I have been told people really look at pedigrees. I am worried about living in Baltimore and SoCal might be better for my mental health, there's tons of institutes and pharma in the SD area as well. Any advice would be really appreciated ❤️ thank you!
  13. 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
  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. So I am deciding between UCSD and Purdue for my graduate study (ECE). Here are some of my own analysis: UCSD Better internship/job opportunities Better location. In CA near Silicon Valley Sunshine beaches seals!!! Better overall reputation Purdue Better chance to receive funding Easier to transfer to PhD program (Slightly) better ranking in ECE Cheaper living expenses I'm positive to continue pursuing a PhD after MS study, so if just considering chance of admission to PhD program I'd vote for Purdue since I was told by UCSD admission
  16. I got accepted to the master program of Latin American Studies of the universities mentioned the one of Uchicago is a one year program and gave 1/3 fee waiver. NYU with no funding at all, 1.5 years UCSD basically the same, 2 years Tulane, 2 years, full fellowship for the first year and possibly continues to the second year really not sure about which to go, they all seem to be good schools. I was not a native English speaker and am afraid that studying in Uchi may be too stressful. NYU is also good and seems to have better reputation than tulane, but too expensive.
  17. Help needed with deciding between University of California San Diego (M.S. in Intelligent Systems Robotics and Control) and Johns Hopkins University (M.S. in Robotics). Points I wish to consider: 1. Quality of Education and research opportunities (Robotics field) 2. Financial Help (RA/TA) - Competitiveness and Compensation 3. Job opportunities 4. Location
  18. Hello everyone, I know these are both relatively new programs, but I was wondering if anyone had information on the MS in Business Analytics at UCSD and UCI. I just got accepted to both of these programs and am having a hard time deciding between the two. Both programs are super similar based on the information provided on the website, but I am leaning towards UCSD based on the location and reputation of the school in general. If anyone had some opinions on the programs, that would be great! edit: If there is no information on the specific program, some sort of information on graduat
  19. I have an admit from ucsd(no funding) vs kth(tution scholarship). I'm really confused which one to choose. UCSD is more recognized and is near silicon valley, but kth will allow me to be debt free after studies. But wages in sweden are low. Can anyone give their suggestions/share their experiences at any of these?
  20. I am currently deciding between UCSD Nanoengineering PhD and Northeastern Bioengineering PhD and am having some difficulty deciding. Has anyone not liked anything about northeastern, or what turned you away. P.S. If you've got info on Nanoengineering and UCSD too please don't hold back. Everything helps
  21. Hey everyone, I recently got accepted to UCSD for nanoengineering but I don't really know that much about the program. It seems to be quite a specific field and I feel a little in the dark about what to expect. Are there any current students here in this program that can give me a little insight into it? Thank you!
  22. I applied to two different programs at UCSD (Biomedical Science and Neuroscience) and was fortunate to be admitted to both. I've definitely decided to attend UCSD but I'm having trouble choosing which program. They're the same in terms of stipend/benefits and most of my labs of interest are available with either program. The core courses are slightly different but my options for electives will be pretty much the same. I also got a great vibe from both program's students and faculty. For a bit of background on me, I'm interested in studying neurodegerative diseases (including molecular mechanis
  23. Hey! I am an international student and cannot go for the open day. So, I thought that we start a thread for people who are going to or thinking to join the physics department at UCSD. I haven't firmly decided yet but I am accepted for hep-th. Which field did you apply for?
  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. Hello guys, I got accepted into ECE MEng at UIUC and CS MS at UCSD. I wonder which programs will help me more in my future career. I have good background in CS and already got an internship in big company this summer. Could you please share your suggestions and reasons? Many thanks.
