  1. Hello, I am a current graduate student working on my Ed.S. degree in School Psychology. I am considering applying to USC’s DSW program. As a school psychologist I will be working with children and youth. I would also like to work with adults and provide mental health services but as a school psychologist I am limited. Therefore, I feel that a DSW would be a good fit. Has anyone here applied to the DSW program at USC or considering? I am considering this program because of its flexibility (online), 2 year to complete, and no MSW needed. Also, are there any school psychologist w
  2. Hello all. It's my first time posting here and I apologize if it's not the right forum for such a post. Would anyone here happen to know of the pros & cons of USC's M.S. in Statistics? I mean no offense, but if I may be blunt, some friends have shared that some USC's master programmes are "cash cows". I couldn't find much candid commentary on USC's M.S. in Statistics online and am hoping that stats grad students may be able to weigh in. Subjective opinions are okay Thanks for reading. USC = University of Southern California (in case the acronym USC is overloaded)
  3. Hi! I'm making my decision as to where to go to graduate school next fall to get my master's in social work. I've been accepted to USC, NYU, and Columbia and I'm having a very very very hard time making a decision! I've received scholarships from NYU and USC, which help with the tuition, but by no means cover it. With all being said and done USC will still wind up costing me about 80k for the two years (before financial aid) NYU will wind up costing me 60k (before financial aid) and Columbia will be a whopping 100k (before financial aid or scholarship info). I want to focus on
  4. Hello all! Its decision time and I am not sure I am making the right choice. Already I'm not at a great place financially and in both schools Id be paying approximately 30K. However one program is one of a kind and closer to my passions but the other is definitely a good match for the work I have been doing. The decision to move from California to Massachusetts is definitely a difficult one considering I don't have a steady income yet. I would need employment and an apartment to make it by there. If I stay in CA I have already secured employment and have a

  6. Hey guy, I got offers from PhD programs at the committee of immunology at Uchicago and Programs in Biological and Biomedical Science (PIBBS) at USC. Which one should I choose to go? I know Chicago's ranking is higher and has a higher nature index, but if I want to go into industry in the end, does that matter a lot? Also cuz the weather at LA tho.....

    I did my undergrad at UCSD and am fairly familiar with the social and academic scenes at SDSU and USD if you have an questions fire away.
  8. Hello. I've always known that USC is a very good school, but I was surprised recently when I checked csrankings.org that they're within the top 20 for AI/ML (my field of interest). I'm looking to apply this year so that I can (hopefully) start in the fall of 2021. I'm not looking for a generic "what are my chances" post, but I would like some advice on what I could work on in order to improve my chances for admission. 1. GPA: 3.2ish/4.0 (undergrad), 3.85/4.0 (master - 1/4 semesters) 2. GRE: 163V/169Q/5.5AW 3. Research: No major publications. One paper submitted to an int'l
  9. Anyone else going to the Admitted Student Day event on March 26th and 27th?
  10. So, TL;DR deadline day is coming up for me to choose on Sol Price at SC for my MPA or do my MA IR at NYU. SC will be slightly cheaper, but price isn’t a big factor to me as much as career prospects. From posting over at r/gradschool and a couple other forums it seems like MPA is more in demand and offers more diverse options, but I’m not sure. I want to go into politics longterm, but want to lecture at the uni level in the interim, which would require a PhD. Right now the real hold up is being worried whether or not I’d be able to do a PhD in IR without a masters in the field. Als
  11. I wanted to ask-- has anyone that applied to the priority deadline for USC's MSW (2019) program heard back about scholarships (dean's, merit-based) with their applications or received any offers for funding? I've been admitted but I'm unsure if I just have not been considered for those scholarships or funding of that sort since I have not received any notifications.
  12. 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?
  13. I'm an international student from India and I've been offered admission to Duke and USC for an MS in BME. I've spoken to a lot of people from both colleges, and I seem to get the general idea that USC is a great place primarily because of its location in California where there are a lot of BT/Biomed companies. But I'm still pretty torn between them, since Duke has a great program and offers me the flexibility to really explore what I like. As somebody who wants to enter the industry, I'm not sure if I should pick the much lower ranked program/good location, or great program/okay location. Any
  14. 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
  15. The University of Southern California or Virginia Tech, which is better for M.S. in mechanical?
  16. Hello, I've got admits from the following universities, 1. Arizona State University - Robotics and Autonomous Systems (Electrical Engineering) 2. University of Southern California - Electrical Engineering (Multimedia and Creative Technologies) 3. North Carolina State University - Electrical Engineering (Probably picking Robotics concentration) Need help to finalize University among these, considering overall reputation, the course, Return of interest. Personally, I feel that the USC course may narrow down job opportunities and I can't justify the extra cost for USC. I'm

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
  18. Got unofficial acceptance today. Join if you are on the same boat 🙂
  19. Salutations, fellow Trojans! Officially accepted admission today ?
  20. Hi, I got a skype interview invitation from USC Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. It is scheduled next week. Can anybody tell what it will be like and what are the chances of getting selected if u are invited for the interview?
  21. I plan to do my masters in Mechanical Engineering and the area of concentration which I have chosen is Fluid and Thermal Sciences. I have admits from NCSU (for Fall 2018) and from USC (for Spring 2019). Which one shall I go for and why?
  22. Hi All, I'm pretty bad at navigating this site so forgive me if this thread already exists for 2018 but I've been looking at a 2015 edition of this thread and it seemed really helpful so I figured I'd start one for this year. I'm currently trying to decide between: Rutgers: Interdisciplinary. 2 years. full ride. possibility of GA positions worth 7k a semester. #20 in US News Rankings (don't know how they do these but...) University of Florida: Arts + Technology. 3 years. full ride. 22k/year teaching fellowship (20 hrs/wk). #82 in US News. USC: New Genres. 2 years. Wai
  23. Hi! I know it's a bit late now but I just received my offer to MS in data science from Columbia and MS in Computer Science (Scientist and Engineers) from USC, besides MS in data science in NYU. I am having great difficulty deciding among these three programs. My brain literally shut down and beg for other's suggestions... A bit of background, I am graduating from UCSD majoring in Applied Mathematics and minor in Computer science with specialization in Machine Learning. I am a bit inclined towards becoming a data scientist in the future but I don't mind studying computer science. Fo
  24. Hi, everyone. I have been waitlisted on the MSEI(master in entrepreneurship and innovation)since 19 April, and interviewed twice in March. According to the director, the decision should be out on 1 May. BUT it didn't. What freaks me out is that I‘m an international student who probably won't have enough time to process the bank, visa, and housing issues if be admitted after May, because the program begins at 13 Aug. So should I contact the director again? (I have sent several emails after interview, waitlist, and asked a friend, who withdrew the offer, referring me to the
  25. I applied to USC to do an MSW online last week and the waiting has been killing me! I completed my undergraduate in 2015 as a Child and Family Studies major. I didn't really have a ton of work experience, just a work-study job, so my CV is kind of dull. I'm really concerned about my GPA as maybe it was a 2.7 when I graduated. I did write an addendum to further explain the reasoning behind my low GPA (sexual trauma). I have had a time of healing and know that I am fully ready to be a fantastic student again. A few months after I graduated, I moved to Tanzania to work for a non-profit for
