  1. I am applied to UIUC, UMich, UColorado and Rice (best ranked among the universities I applied to) for Condensed Matter Theory (for a Ph.D in Physics). My GRE score is Q163, V163. I am an international student with a 3.91 WES evaluated undergrad GP. I don't have publications but a decent research experience. I recently found out that these schools were much competitive than I had projected, my chances have begun to look dim especially because of my poor Quant score. Do I have a decent shot?
  2. Hi! I wonder which Statistics PhD program is better, UIUC Statistics or UT-Austin Statistics and Data Science. UIUC: Pros: 1. Ranking; 2. CS is better; 3. Statistics Department is big and has many research areas. Cons: 1. Location; 2. Weather. UT-Austin: Pros: 1. Location; 2. Many good companies there; 3. Some big names in Bayesian. Cons: 1. Ranking; 2. Too new; 3. Too Bayesian. Thank you so much for your answers and help.

  4. Hi everyone! I'm having a lot of trouble deciding which M.S. in Computer Science (with a focus on computer security) I should pick. Here is the list of the programs I've been accepted to: University of Waterloo - fully funded University of Virginia - $2000 fellowship, (potentially, i'd get in-state tuition, which is ~20k/year. out of state tuition is ~35k/year) Georgia Tech - no funding (~20k/year) University of Utah - no funding (~20k/year) University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign - no funding (~35k/year) UMD College Park - no funding (~40k/year) Ge

  6. I am an international graduate student, my plan is to have an academic career. I have been accepted to both Georgia Tech and UIUC for the Mechanical Engineering Ph.D. program with subfield in biomechanics. The offer from UIUC is quite competitive as it guarantees 5-year funding, while the offer from GATech is only 1 year with the intention for renewal. Both are almost the same stipend However Atlanta is much more expensive. I like the research point in GATech and the group more than that in UIUC. I really can't make a decision. especially I am worried about the availability of funding in GATec
  7. I have received admits from UIUC and GaTech for their MS in CS programs. Based on the current trajectory of things the possibility of attending this fall seems slim. Either way, I have to make my decision by April 15th and then potentially defer. - I am interested in studying ML/DL. I definitely want to go somewhere with research opportunities in this field, although I'm not sure if I want to pursue a PhD yet. I think UIUC has more funding?? - Going by just rankings UIUC seems to have a slight edge over GaTech. However, I have also seen reports ranking GaTech slightly above UIU

  9. Hi, I got admits for MS in Computer Science from Columbia, UT Austin and UIUC. I'm an international student and I'm mostly inclined to go for a job post MS. Can you help me decide on which program to go for? Columbia is an Ivy but looks too expensive. Others are cheaper and have decent CS programs but I'm not really sure how to compare the ROI between them. Thanks.
  10. Hi all, I don’t have an admit for Stanford’s MS CS yet — but it’s perhaps the only programme that would make me second guess accepting UIUC’s MS CS. Can you guys help me make the decision early? I’m certainly leaning towards UIUC, and I might decide later on to potentially move to a PhD. Tuition is not an issue for either. UIUC Interesting research topic lined up — could potentially start early? The Midwest is cheaper Seems to be more straightforward to enter PhD? Stanford Name recognition Cheers!
  11. I've been accepted into UIUC's Clinical/Community Psychology PhD program, but am afraid I don't have enough insight on the experience from a grad student's POV. This is a desperate cry for help---Anyone out there know about UIUC's psychology department (i.e. the feel of it, rigor, culture, etc.) in general? Also, any helpful replies about the broader Urbana/Champaign area, the professors, the psych department, or the stipend are all welcome! Thank you
  12. Hey, I got an email from the CS department saying they have recommended me for admissions last Monday (1/13). I waited 5 working days but still haven't gotten the official letter from the graduate college yet. Can other ppl share how long it took for them, for those admitted around this time in January or so? Thank you!
  13. Hi everyone, I graduate this Friday (well I'm walking the stage and I have 2 online summer classes to go) and I'm so nervous and scared for my future. I really want to go to grad school to get my MSW but I am so burnt out from undergrad that I am taking a gap year. Also it was so expensive to apply to grad school. My bachelors of science is in Human Development and Family Studies with a minor in Latino/a Studies. My dream grad school is University of Chicago but I am too afraid to apply or even apply to other schools. I'm so afraid of failure and rejection. I just wanted to know
  14. 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
  15. So I was admitted to University of Illinois Urbana Champaign (UIUC) and that was my only admission so my decision was made for me based on circumstances; however, from the 3 schools, I was waitlisted for I have been admitted to my undergrad institution. I just heard back yesterday and I have a tough choice to make in such little time with the deadline coming up. Coming From Undergrad at California State University, Chico but I am originally from Southern California. Deciding between... CSU, Chico (undergrad institution) and UIUC Factors I am keeping in mind I wo
  16. Hi everyone,I shortlisted the schools down to UIUC and CMU but can't decide on which to attend. My future plans is to stay in academia with postdocs at top schools (perhaps at MIT or Stanford) but I don't want closed doors to the industry. Here are the good vs bad things about both of these schoolsUIUCGood: The PI is highly reputed very famous in contro&gamel theory. The school is also ranked higher in ECE (US News). Very strong faculty members. In addition, I will be working on multi-agent reinforcement learning which I am quite interested in.Bad: I am not quite sure if this would be a cr
  17. Hi everyone!! I've been accepted to my dream school, UTD, with in-state tuition, but I've also been offered a graduate assistantship at The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) that offers full tuition and a monthly stipend. I am still considering the other schools I've been accepted to, but these two schools are my top choices especially because of funding. I'm an out-of-field applicant, and at UIUC I would need to be in school for 3 years instead of 2 years at UTD. Even with in-state tuition for UTD, I'll have to take out many loans to pay for tuition and my living exp
  18. Hi! I was accepted to University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign and I was wondering if there were any current graduate students attending UIUC that I could message and talk to about the program.
  19. Hello everyone, So for now I'v got offer letters from McGill CS and Columbia EE, and still waiting for U of T and UIUC. Applied for both ECE and CS at the latter two. All are MSc programs or something similar. I'm an international student and my goal is to work in the industry (machine learning R&D that kind of stuff) and stay permanently in North America. Considering the odds of getting permanent residency I would say Canada is more ideal for staying after graduation. I could really use some advice on following questions: I heard Toronto has more job opportunities tha
  20. Hey everyone! I thought I'd create a thread for people who are headed to UIUC this Fall. I will be joining the Chemistry PhD program. I am also looking for flatmates (hopefully in Champaign, close to the campus/department) for the first year.
  21. Anyone else going to UIUC in the autumn? What are you studying? M.A. or Ph.D? Feel free to introduce yourself! Spanish Literature M.A. here..
  22. 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.
  23. Hi everyone, So I am evaluating Macro programs. I am a current BSW student at UIUC, which has an advanced standing Leadership and Social Change Program. From what I understand, UIUC has a good program, I like the setting and instructors. My main hesitation is that the Macro program is much smaller, and I am concerned about the amount of field placement for Macro that might be interesting to me. I am also looking at UChicago. UChicago is much more expensive, but I feel like the city of Chicago is a great place to get set up for Macro work, The SSA is ranked #3 nationally in Social
  24. Hello guys, Iam a 2018 MS in Data Science aspirant, and have received admission offer from UIUC and Duke University. Based on the following points, can you share your thoughts on which university should I finalize: The program at UIUC is "MS in Statistics with a concentration in Analytics", offered by the Department of Statistics, and the Duke program is "MS in interdisciplinary Data Science", offered by Social Science Research Institute (SSRI) and Information Initiative at Duke (IID). Curriculum wise, I like both the programs equally well. The only difference is
