  1. Anyone else out there just apply for Fall 2020?
  2. Got admitted to Dartmouth Department of Computer Science, CMU Entertainment Technology Center, and UW Master of Technolgy Innovation. Which one do you think has a better reputation?
  3. Hello all! I saw a few others recently admitted to the UW Evans MPA program for Fall 2018, and thought I'd start a discussion thread to meet each other and discuss various aspects of the school and thoughts on the decision-making process. Where else have you applied/been admitted? Are you leaning one way or another about Evans? What do you want to specialize in/what's your interest area? Any other background info you want to share. I'd love to get to know one another a little better as I myself am struggling with making a decision. A bit about me: I also applied and have been accept
  4. 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
  5. In April I received a reject from CSU EAST BAY for extended-MS in SLP followed by an admit for Post- bacc B.S. in SLP. I accepted the admit for UW post-bacc in BS SLP and now I have an email asking for interview from EAST BAY. I am in dilemma as to what to do? The points here are:- 1. B.S. requires me to do 75 extra credits apart from 50 mandatory credits included in post-bacc program. The extra credits include subjects from I&S, VLPA all of which are completely not related to SLP. 2. I am not sure what extra classes East bay asks the students to take for the extended
  6. Looks like most of the schools I applied to start sending out news mid-March but the wait is agonizing to say the least. I don't even know if I can be confident. This is my first time applying and I am straight out of undergrad. One can only hope.
  7. Hey everyone. I've been accepted into both CMU's MHCI and UW's MHCDE programs and I've been having a difficult time making a decision between the two. If anyone here has any insights on how the programs stack up against one another I'd really appreciate hearing from you! I'll break down some info about myself and my thoughts about the programs for people to weigh in. A bit about myself: 1. Coming directly from undergrad in cognitive science, CS, and english 2. Minimal work experience (some freelance graphic design work, contract web development work, start up proof of concept &
  8. Hey everyone! I've been admitted both to the Columbia Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences MA program and the University of Washington Evans MPA program. While they are very different programs, I'm very torn about where to go and would like to get some help. I am straight out of undergrad with a Bachelor of Journalism (which means I did not learn much professional knowledge in the business field) and want a career in data/business analyst, finance related after graduated from the program. Prefer to work in the States two or three years (for earning tuition back and raise capit
  9. Hey guys! I just got accepted into CMU's MHCI program and am so happy. I'm just waiting on University of Washington MHCI+D's decision. If I get rejected from UW, I'm going to CMU. However, if I get accepted to UW, I'll have to make a decision. I might be jumping the gun here, but I want to get some outside thoughts and give myself enough time to think. I'm leaning towards CMU because it seems to be slightly better overall. Is there any reason that someone should take UW over CMU? UW is a fair bit cheaper, and it's located in Seattle where it will be easier to transition into a job af
  10. Hi all, Thankfully, I have been accepted to the three programs above (UW HCDE, UMICH MSI, and UCI MHCID) and those are my top choices for HCI/Design masters programs that I have applied to. I am having difficulty deciding what school to choose. Any help or advice by anyone who has heard about or done these programs would be greatly appreciated. I currently work in Los Angeles, CA as an associate interaction designer and since UCI has a mostly online program that caters to working professionals, it helps me budget wise. I would not have to worry about moving and can still work at my c
  11. Hi friends! I'm having a hard time choosing between the two schools. The context is that I'm an international student, currently undergrad in the US. UW and EPFL both have good locations (for me), and I'd be down to learn French for daily use, but in some other aspects I don't know which would be better. In terms of funding, EPFL is a little better than UW (this included considerations like health insurance and tuition). There is a 1-year fellowship, and the lab is well funded. But they require students to teach every semester, although the PhD students there told me it's not very ha
  12. Now that announcements have been made, it's down to figuring out where to go! I've been accepted into the SLP masters programs at UW Seattle, Western Washington, Utah, and UC-Boulder. And while getting so many acceptances is wonderful, it's both a blessing and curse... Is there anyone out there that is attending these programs? I'm a current post-bac at UW so I have a little idea of what the department is like, but I would be so appreciative if anyone has any insight into the clinical experience, academic workload, life living in those cities, etcetera. Thank you in advance!
  13. Hello folks ! I'm willing to pursue MS in UX / HCI preferably in Seattle, but I don't meet the toefl requirement which is a score of 106 with 26 in Speaking. Still any chance to get in ,in either of MHCID, HCDE (UW) or MSTI (Bellevue)? I have 94 in toefl with 25 in speaking. Any suggestions will be really appreciated. Best, -Ketki.
  14. Hello! I am a Junior student planning to pursue a Ph.D. in USA. UW is really my top 1 dream school. I know it's very hard to get into UW Ph.D. program. So I really wish to know my odds given my background. Thanks in advance! Undergrad: Zhejiang University, China (top 2 in computer science) Major: Honors college of Computer Science GPA: Overall 3.87/4.0, major GPA 3.95/4.0, ranking top 5% TOEFL: 107 (R24 L27 S26 W30) Letters of Rec: I will have a rec letter from a prof at Zhejiang University (my mentor, strongly rec), a prof at UC Davis (visualization&HCI research),
  15. I am a senior student majored in linguistics in China. I am very interested in speech language pathology and would like to apply a master program of SLP in United States, but my GPA is low (3.40 for the first 3 year and maybe only 3.27 by WES) and most of what I've learned is about Chinese not English. And Chinese course structure is quite different from that in States so I'm not sure whether my prerequisite courses are valid. I've completed a 3-month clinical observation of audiology in a Chinese hospital, and will begin to observe the clinical work of a CCC-SLP in Shanghai next month. I lear
  16. Anyone else on the waitlist for uw's comp ling program? Or have knowledge about how many people get off the waitlist/how the waitlist works? I'll be emailing then tomorrow at a more reasonable time, but I don't expect a response till Monday from them, so figured I'd ask here!
  17. Due to life circumstances, UW is the only school I could apply to for a Fiction MFA. Has anyone heard from them yet? I've done some sleuthing and seen a smattering of people who have been waitlisted, accepted, and rejected, but I've yet to receive an email, call, or letter. I've tried so hard to keep myself from freaking out, but...I'm definitely freaking out now. I thought I would have an answer by mid-March, and be able to make concrete steps from there, but we're approaching April and I still have nothing.
  18. Hey all, Has anyone heard anything (interview/rejection/acceptance) from the developmental PhD program at University of Washington? I haven't been contacted by this program in any capacity since I sent in my application. I didn't get an interview invite though so I assume I'm rejected, but I wanted to know if anyone else that applied has heard anything. I've been checking the results survey page regularly and nothing for developmental comes up under UW for this cycle. It would just be nice to get an idea of what's happening so I know how to move forward with my decisions/plans. I almost
  19. I was admitted to both with no funding and as a non-resident. It looks like UW would be the better financial decision if I can find a TA-ship (full tuition waiver vs. half-waiver at UCSD with a TA-ship), but I'm also getting the sense that UCSD tends to make the MS-to-PhD transition easier and that it might be easier to find a TA position at UCSD. Does anyone have any information about whether it's really difficult to find a TA position at UW (the admissions site suggests so) and if I'm correct in thinking a UCSD MS may give me a better shot at getting into the UCSD PhD program down the line?
  20. The more I think about this decision the more I can't decide!!! I made a spreadsheet with weighted points hoping it would help and they're BASICALLY TIED!!!! For what it's worth: I'm interested in translational neuroscience, specifically considering either addiction or neurodegenerative diseases. I'm hoping to go into industry after getting my PhD. Both programs are interdisciplinary and draw professors from multiple departments. At both schools I met PIs that I really 'clicked' with and could see myself doing research with. How do I make this decision?!
  21. Hello everyone, I am a CA resident and I've applied for both UW Seattle and Tacoma MSW program. I heard very much about UW Seattle Campus but not so much about Tacoma. Any thoughts about the campus? the program? financial aid? anything! Thanks
  22. Just throwing this out there for any other UW MHCI+D applicants for 2017. As you all know, apps were due on Jan 12th so we have a little while to wait! I only applied to MHCI+D, but this could be a discussion area for applicants of similar programs (HCDE, etc) to vent/rant/discuss as well
  23. Hello I am considering the three offers I have received: University of Washing - Seattle : MS in Industrial and System Engineering Arizona State University: Ph.D in Industrial Engineering University of Wisconsin - Madison: System Engineering Analytics And my goal is to get a Ph.D, but I can first get a MS then apply to a Ph.D. Could anyone please tell me more about these programs and give me some advices? (And I'm still waiting for other offers but I'm not so sure they will admit me....TAT) Thank you!
  24. Hi guys, a prospect who wants to purse a BE/BME PhD degree here. I would like to ask if anyone knows in great details on the pros and cons of the Bioengineering program at the University of Washington (Seattle) and Georgia Tech. Which bioengineering disciplines are the two schools strong at? Which of the two would you rather choose to purse your PhD, and why? (history?, strong fields/faculty member, funding, weather, etc.) I really appreciate your help!!! Thank you in advance
