  1. Has anyone heard when UT Austin might announce decisions? During the past couple years they've announced between 3/7 and 3/10. Their website says "admissions decisions are typically announced the second week of March prior to UT Austin closing for Spring Break," but this year their Spring break is the third week. So, I'm not sure if the results will be announced during the second week still, or possibly later. Is this anyone's top pick? Anyone go here for their undergrad?
  2. Has anyone applied to UT Austin's MSBA for fall'18? How much time will it take to get decision on application once application status says: file transferred to graduate committee for review?

    Skype Interviews

    Are interviews primarily for PHD applicants, or generally done for MS as well? Thank you in advance for any insights.
  5. Hi Everyone, I have been admitted into UT Austin's MSBA and Duke's MQM program but I'm unable to decide which one would be better. Any thoughts?
  6. Hi! Is anyone else applying for masters programs in marketing? I barely see any updates for this on the front page
  7. Hi, I am an international student. I have been admitted into UT Austin's MArch 1 and WashU's MArch 1 program but I'm unable to decide which one is better. WashU offers me $18,000 fellowship and its March 1 is STEM program while UT Austin is not. In my opinion, Austin is much better than St. Louis as a city to live, to study and to work. I prefer to work in US after graduate from grad school. I don't know about the education environment, reputation and faculty of the two schools of Architecture in US, so I need your advice. Thank you in advance.
  8. Hello Guys, I need some insight. Which one should I choose? The operation management/decision science PhD in Kelley, or the STATISTICS Group at Risk Analysis and Decision Making Department at McCombs? If I can graduate successfully, my first option would be to go into academia and 95% of Kelley graduates become faculty. However, I am worried that in the worst case scenario (which I hope and think will not happen), that i dont finish my phd, then I will have to go into industry, then mccombs seems to be a better option, because it's very location in austin. Bloomington is pretty and all that, but indianna is hardly the most developed state in the country. I would appreciate any insight! THANK YOU!
  9. I got an admission for MS in Electrical Engineering programs from UCLA, UIUC and UT Austin. I am not sure which one should I go for. I am interested in VLSI circuits and systems. I want this decision to be made considering the following factors: 1. Reputation of school in the field of electrical engineering 2. Future job prospects 3. Quality and level of research and professors 4. Financial aid easiness in the university 5. University's inclination to Electrical Engineering, especially VLSI, Power Electronics and machine learning (and the extent of inter disciplinary encouragement of different engineering departments) Please help in selecting. Thank You

    Thoughts on UT Austin CSD

    Hi all! I have just been accepted to UT Austin's CSD graduate program. I am really happy to have gotten in but am wondering if anyone out there can tell me about their experience with the program, student body, and faculty. I would love to get some feedback!
  11. Hello all! Negotiating offers for a PhD in Chemical Engineering between Amherst, Georgia Tech, Cornell, Michigan, and UT Austin. Cornell's offer has proven to be most financially competitive, yet all are within the same stipend ball park. Interested in biological research, primarily regarding cellular engineering. Little bit about me: first gen college student, female, first gen US citizen (originally from Moscow, Russia), currently at Northeastern University and completed my elementary through high school education in NJ. Also, I'm a total work horse and prefer a heavily shifted work:life balance. Currently 21 years old, looking to complete my PhD by 25 in order to kick start my career then! Let me know your opinions!
  12. Hello everyone, I am currently working on my SOP for the UT Austin Computer Architecture and Embedded Systems MS program. I am worried that what I have is too broad. I would greatly appreciate it if any you could take a look at it and provide some feedback. Please PM me or reply to this and I will PM you my essay. Thank you in advance!
  13. Hi all, I just received my admission from Northwestern IMC and am facing difficulties deciding on which program to choose. As UT Austin is a newer program, there doesn't seem to be many posts on the program so I was wondering if anyone could provide any insights that can help me toward deciding! I have accepted my admission at UT Austin and paid a deposit of 2000$, and even finished my career services interview. I thought I didn't have a chance to get into Northwestern, but it turns out I got admitted the last day of being on the waitlist! It's very hard of a decision as the tuition at Northwestern is 84K, and 42K for UT Austin. Northwestern- prestigious program, lots of alumni, focuses more on tech and ecommerce UT Austin- new program (started in 2016), not as many alumni in the field as compared to Northwestern, but there's lots of alumni for McCombs (so could still be of great help when looking for jobs), focuses more on quant and analysis of data in targeting consumers. I was wondering if anyone could provide any insights to the two programs, your opinions are of great help, thank you all so much!
  14. Hi everyone, I'm headed to the LBJ School of Public Affairs at UT Austin this fall after accepting a full-ride scholarship offer. I applied to their MGPS program because I'm interested in working for national security. A huge reason why I wanted to go back to school was to take advantage of the multiple critical language scholarships available only to students, such as Boren, CLS, FLAS, etc. Based on my personal interests, I've narrowed down my language learning selection to two languages: Russian and Persian. My questions/concerns are: 1. Is it feasible to learn a new language during graduate school? Especially a mission-critical language? For my first two semesters, my course load will be relatively normal at 9 hours each semester. Also, for what it's worth, I'm currently trilingual (English, Spanish, and French). 2. In terms of my career, which language -- Russian or Persian -- would offer the highest prospects of aiding me start a career in national security once I graduate in approximately three years? UT offers intensive courses for each of these languages, which means I can cover two years of coursework in one year. I also intend to apply to Boren, CLS, and UT's FLAS programs, which expedite language fluency through intensive language and cultural exposure. My study abroad choices are in Odessa, Ukraine for Russian or Dushanbe, Tajikistan for Persian. I've also considered learning Arabic or Hindi/Urdu, as UT hosts Flagship programs for both Arabic and Hindi/Urdu. 3. Alternatively, should I instead just focus my time on learning more technical skills? For example, a GIS certificate or a certificate in data science? National security is my passion. I want to be a suitable, worthy candidate. Any advice is appreciated! Especially in terms of which critical language I should learn, since it's a life-long commitment. Thank you!
  15. Hi everyone! I've recently received admissions notifications for grad school and decided to turn to The Grad Cafe for help and/or input in deciding which school I should attend. Hopefully i get some feedback soon, considering the deadline is on April 15! Anyway, a little background on myself. I am a 23 year old female person from Malaysia. Got my Bachelor's in International Relations from Boston University (Class of 2015) and am currently working as a researcher at a foreign policy think tank in my country. Hoping to go back to grad school this Fall 2017. I applied to all IR MA programs, 6 in total, and all 6 accepted me. The 6 schools and programs are: Columbia SIPA (MIA) Johns Hopkins SAIS (MA) University of Denver Josef Korbel School (MA in Intl Human Rights) George Washington Elliott School (MA in Global Communication) UT Austin LBJ School (MGPS) Tufts Fletcher (MALD) I honestly did not expect to get into all 6 programs, which is why I am having trouble deciding. I've created an Excel spreadsheet to look over all the relevant details in order to help me make the best choice but what do you guys think are the programs I should give more weight to? All of the programs i've applied to are of the international human rights/humanitarian policy with a global communications/public service/policy orientation. I like these programs because they are all interdisciplinary and most emphasize on practical applications of knowledge rather than theoretical. For example, rather than complete an MA thesis, some of these programs require Capstones or practical internships instead. My weaknesses are economics and numbers. Some of these schools have also offered me scholarships/fellowships - the only two who haven't are SIPA and SAIS. What i'm taking into consideration when picking schools/programs are mainly cost of attendance, scholarship/fellowship offered, reputation/ranking and cost of living (since i'm guessing i'd most probably have to live off campus, self housing). Prior to receiving admissions notices, I had my own personal choice ranking but now, some of it has shifted. For example, NYC cost of living alone is a number that i am not sure I would be able to afford (let alone cost of attendance of 80k per year) so Columbia has moved down slightly on my list. I am going to apply to government scholarships from my country that would cover cost of living etc, everything total but the problem is i have to make a commitment to a school soon and scholarships here generally have 3-4 rounds of interviews so it might not work out in my favor soon enough. That's pretty much the basic gist of it! Looking forward to any and all input, opinions, first hand knowledge and experiences that you guys can offer!

  18. Hey all, I recently got accepted into UT Austin, University of Notre Dame, WUSTL and UCRiverside for a PhD in Chemical Engineering. All offers have similar funding and all the programs are pretty great, especially UT Austin and Notre Dame. I want to continue in academia so I want to make a good decision about my university. Any advice? Thanks!

    Petroleum Engineering Fall 2017

    Hello, fellow undergrad/grad students, I am a student at Arizona State University. I will be graduating next semester (Spring 2017), and I have decided to go for Grad school. After weeks of research, intospectoon, and thinking, I decided that I want to go for Petroleum Engineering in June of this year. I have been hard at work since then on my Resume, Statement of Purpose, GRE, Letters of recommendation, University selection, and other procedures. I have selected the universities I want to apply and here is the list, 1: University of Texas, Austin 2: Texas A&M University, College Station 3: University of Tulsa 4: University of Oklahoma, Norman Campus 5: University of Alaska Fairbanks 6: University of Wyoming, Laramie 7: Standford University I put Stanford at the bottom because I am not sure if they would want me. So, it is just like a blind shot; I do not want not to try. Here is my UG profile: Undergraduate College: Arizona State University Major: Astrophysics Undergraduate GPA: 3.67 (Top 10% in my class, Graduating with academic honors, Magna Cum Laude) GRE 328 (Verbal: 163 (92nd percentile), Quantitative: 165 (90th percentile), AWA: 5 (93rd percentile)) Research Experience: Not exactly research, but I have many major projects under my belt. Some of them include building a rover for a well-known space organization, Studying the surface of Mars and searching for signs of water, Building a miniature spacecraft, etc I am aware that I have a more than decent profile, but my only problem is that I am an Astrophysics major applying for Petroleum Engineering Masters and I want to know how big a problem that is going to be. I would like to inform you guys that I was a Mechanical Engineering major before changing my major to Astrophysics. So, I do have a lot of Engineering courses under my belt. So, What do you guys think? Can I get in to UT Austin? Feel free to share your stories, profiles, and scores. I would be glad to help in any way I can. Let us help each other.

    GRE Score Evaluation

    Hello, people, I am a senior Astrophysics student at Arizona State University and I am curious about my GRE score. I took the GRE general test on October 8th and received my scores last week. Now, I know that the admission process is subjective and GRE score is only one part of it. So, I would like you guys to answer my question based on the assumption that the rest of my profile is good enough. Here is my question: Is my GRE score good enough to get me into the University of Texas-Austin with a scholarship/assistantship? My GRE Scores Verbal: 163 (92nd percentile) Quant: 165 (89th percentile) AWA: 4 (60th percentile) Also, I would appreciate it if you can comment on my chances at other universities such as, Texas A&M, College Station University of Oklahoma University of Tulsa University of Alaska, Fairbanks University of Wyoming Thank You.

    UT Austin - Fall 2016

    Anyone going for UT Austin this fall? I am going for my MS in ORIE
  22. Just when I was home and dry with my funded UT Austin offer, Gatech showed up with a similar GA Funding....and now I've got a decision to make. I would like any comments as to the prestige and quality of the ChemE PhD program in these two schools. Your advice on which would provide a more rounded experience in ChemE would also be appreciated. Thanks.
  23. Hello - I'm going back to grad school to get a solid background in data analytics and would appreciate your advice on what school to choose. The three programs I applied to, and got accepted in, are: UT Austin McCombs - MS in Business Analytics: Growing program, great industry sponsorships, shorter program (year vs. 1.5 years) but seems more like a 5th year undergrad than a program for experienced people (I have 3 years). About 25% scholarship. Columbia Fu Foundation - Data Science: Very technical program with a statistics focus (which is what I need - I'm a info science undergrad), great brand recognition, but a really new program (first flight graduated this winter). No scholarship. Carnegie Mellon Heinz - Master in Information Systems Management - Business intelligence & Data Analytics (MISM:BIDA): Well established, more management focused and not as technical as Columbia, but the new BIDA track adds more hands-on courses. 60% scholarship. In terms of cost, I would choose CMU (however, my company will reimburse me after I return so cost is not the issue). From your research and experience, is the brand name recognition of Columbia and a more technical 'Data Science' degree worth turning down CMU? Appreciate the advice!

    Machine Learning PhD (EECS)

    Hello everyone, I have been accepted to EE PhD programs at UW-Seattle, UT Austin, and Columbia. My research interest involve machine learning and optimization algorithms. I have been given RA/TA at all three places (TA for first term) and can pick adviser after arriving. UW and Columbia have very flexible programs where I can take courses and have advisers across CS and Stats in addition to EE. UT seems a bit more strict with requirements, with funding being a concern. It would be great if someone can discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these programs on the whole, and ML in particular. Even though I would have EE as my home department, I plan to associate myself primarily with the CS community - both coursework and adviser selection. I like the city of Seattle a lot, which is a great place for machine learning - comparable to the Bay Area. However, UWEE doesn't have a high overall ranking, even though it is highly rated for ML. Should I be concerned about this? I would like to go the academia route post PhD, but I am also very open to research positions in good labs
  25. Hey everyone. I've recently been accepted into NYU Hagop Kevorkian Center, the University of Chicago, and the University of Texas at Austin as a master's student for the upcoming fall. I'm interested in studying the modern Middle East, and I hope to pursue a PhD after my master's. Professionally, I would like to go into advising on or developing US foreign policy with a focus on the Middle East (Perhaps a job in the White House or in a political think tank in DC). That being said, I have not completely ruled out the possibility of teaching in the future as well. Bearing all this in mind, I would like opinions from other people who are similarly in my position, who are currently studying at these schools, or even alumni, anyone who might be able to shed some light on my situation and give helpful advice, as I am torn between the aforementioned schools. I will also say that at the moment, it seems that UT Austin is the most financially feasible so far (lowest tuition, but I haven't heard if I will receive an TA position yet - I should find out in the next couple of weeks). Any thoughts/opinions on which school I should attend? Thank you all in advance.
