  1. Hi guys, I got admits from Indiana University Bloomington for MS HCI and from Pratt for MS IXD. I am unable to decide which one to go with. Any pointers would be helpful. PS: I am more interested in UX design compared to UX research. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi all! Luckily, I got admissions from these great courses and I need your help in decision making. I’m an experienced UX & visual designer who worked for almost 10 yrs in a big IT company. I felt it’s time to learn how to find future problem and insights in global mind and get close with latest technologies and knowledge to move on to the next level, so I decided to admit to UX & HCI focused graduate schools. Actually, I got an admission from NYU ITP as well. However, I think that the ROI is not that good for me, so I’m considering UW and CMU. Both of them are 2yrs course Cohort size: UW 120, CMU 10 STEM: UW o, CMU x I heard that the ranking and output of UW IS #1 now, but CMU has more well-known school in my country. I want to work for FAANG like companies after graduate and I’ll come back to my country after few years if I can get a job in universities. Could you give me any advice? I need to decide until this weekend and it’s really tough......
  3. Hi guys! Which one should I choose? UMich HCI or Gatech Digital Media? My goal after graduating is to be a UX designer. Any advice? Thanks a lot!!!🏄‍♀️
  4. Hi ux designers, which program is better for getting a ux design job in the US? I am an international student. I was majored in psychology, so I hope the program can improve my design critique skills or other crucial skills for designers during interviews. Pratt is more design-focused and it is located in NYU. Cornell is ivy, so I guess the reputation might help as well. Anyone willing to provide some advice?? Im so confused!!! Thanks a looooot!
  5. Hi, I got admissions from several great schools for this fall semester, but I cannot decide yet. Where will you choose if you are in my shoes? I have 8 yrs work experience as ux designer and I have BFA in visual design. I’d like to work at FAANG as product designer later, and also I want to be a professor in my country(Asia) later. Here are the pros and cons: 1. CMU mDes + great name value in field/academia ? small cohort size (~10) - location (Pittsburgh) - no STEM 2. UW HCDE + great name value in field + location (close with tech companies) - location (Seattle = boring, rainy..) - low name value in my country ? Big cohort size (100~) 3. NYU ITP + location (New York!) + can experience physical computing - not focus on UX directly ? Big cohort size (100~) 4. RCA GID + double degree (MA in RCA, MS in Imperial College) + more innovative curriculum - location (London.. BREXIT.......) - not focus on UX directly If you have any experience or opinions about these schools, let me know! Thanks!
  6. Has anyone else applied to/heard back from Pratt's new IXD program?
  7. Hey guys, there was originally a thread, but gone for some reason, so I thought it's good to start a new one since I didn't saw another. I'm a CS+Psych focus and here's what I've applied to: Rice MHCI+HF (AD very early in Dec) Cornell Tech CM UW MHCI+D & HCDE GT HCI CMU MHCI UCB MIMS UMich MI Toronto MI Welcome to post anything! Interviews, timelines, and results! Wish everyone get in your dream program!
  8. Hi all, I'm revising my SoP for grad programs in Human-Computer Interaction and would be extremely grateful to get any feedback/criticism before submitting. Is there anyone in this field who can spare a few minutes going through my SoP and maybe suggesting a few things. More than happy to swap/review other statements- even if in different areas. Thanks in advance!
  9. Hi guys, I posted a topic a few weeks ago, and now I am posting again because the decision gets harder...... Now I have got the following admissions, and all are STEM programs: Pratt - Information Experience Design (IED) Parsons - Design and Technology (DT) SVA - Interaction Design (IXD) NYU - Interactive Telecommunication Programs (ITP) California College of Arts - Interaction Design (IXD)* *= 1 year. The rest are 2-year programs. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ My goal is to become a UX / Interaction Designer because I enjoy the process of turning an idea into a usable/ helpful reality! So, I think Pratt, SVA and Parsons may suit me more than the NYU, which is very artistic and experimental, and the 1-year CCA may be too rush for me to polish my skills and establish myself in the field. Has anyone had any advice on choosing the program to get to my goal as a UX/IXD designer? Thank you guys for your patience! Please don't hesitate to enlighten me if you have any ideas!
  10. Anyone else out there just apply for Fall 2020?
  11. Hi all, I've been looking to transition into the field of User Experience Research and Design and have been fortunate to be accepted into a large number of graduate programs for Fall 2020. I had this fear that I wouldn't get in anywhere and ended up applying to a huge mix of programs that I liked, but now I have a tough decision to make. Here are the programs I'm considering: University of Washington - HCDE University of Texas - Austin MSIS University of Michigan MSI University of Maryland HCIM University of Minnesota - Twin Cities HFE Every time I attend an admitted students day I end up liking new things about each program. I am currently leaning towards the University of Washington's HCDE program. My only reservation with HCDE is that I know the cohort is larger, mixed with full and part time students, and has mostly evening classes. I am a little worried about the social aspect and also what to do with my time during the day. I'd consider getting a job but what I'd prefer would be to complete a program quickly and get into the field, still I know Seattle is a great place to be for UX and that HCDE is the most competitive program I've been accepted into. I was doing my own research too but I was wondering if anyone had any feedback as applicants or students on any programs that I should give more consideration to or take off my list. Any information is appreciated while I try to make the best decision! Thank you
  12. Hey! Applications are opening and i thought it would be best to freak out together! Drop in a comment if you're applying for fall 2020, with your Uni list, background and anything else you would like to share!
  13. Hi guys! I recently applied to the MSc program at the School of Interactive Arts and Technology, Simon Fraser University. Looking for fellow peeps in the same program to get an idea of the results and the program.
  14. Hey, I have an architecture background and switching to hci/ui ux and will apply OCT 2019. Anyone else in the same application boat? In the process of shortlisting schools currently! Would love to connect during the entire application process! Read here that Pratts program wasn't the best. Anyone else have any information about other programs in the US, Canada as well as EU? Currently considering UW, CMU, University of Michigan Ann arbor, Umea, Delft, Alto (for visual communication design)
  15. Hi Everyone, I just wanted to start a forum on those waiting for admission to Fall 2018 University of Michigan School of Information Master's program! Here is a space for you to discuss your worries, get information from others applying, and ask about acceptances/denials. We're all in the same boat! UMSI '18!!
  16. hi everyone so I applied to Pratt's IXD program but wanted to learn more details while I wait for a response. for those of you currently studying it / alumni: How much has it prepared you for a career in UX? What did it lack? Is it mostly design or more scientific? (i.e. are you working with programs like Axure and Sketch, or other things) has pratt given you good industry connections? i don't have a background in ux, but I've done light web design and coding. I know UX would be a lot more involved, but I'm drawn to it. i'm open to hearing anything else you want to share about the program thanks!
  17. Hi! Does anyone hear from Pratt Ixd 2020 spring? (I submitted my application just a day before deadline. I know is kinda late, cause I prepared for applying 2020fall until I saw the extension of spring.)
  18. Hi there - I wasn't quite sure where to post this, but "Interdisciplinary" seems like the best place. I'm a UX researcher/designer with 8 years professional experience. I want to go back to school to learn how to be a tech professional who can support tech companies in creating more ethical products and services. MIT's MS (I'm not interested in PhD) program seems like SUCH a good place to think critically about technology and how it gets made, and experiment with new solutions. I've looked at other HCI/Information/UX programs, and found that most MS programs don't seem to have the opportunities MIT does. It feels like most of the classes at other programs are tech positive and there's not space to challenge tech and look at it differently. I'm a non-academic tech worker (not a programmer though, no CS skills here) looking to contribute to a more ethical tech future. Is anyone in the same boat as me? Or in a boat nearby?
  19. Took the GRE two weeks ago and got the scores (Q169/V161/AW4.0). I'm a non-native English speaker. I think I could probably improve my AWA to 4.5 with enough practices, yet I doubt I could reach the same QV scores again (during mock exams my average is around 323). Just curious if this score is good & safe enough for applying HCI master programs, or is it worth it to retake the test simply for AWA's sake? Other background info: Foreign Languages and Literatures Major - 3.96/4.3 or around 3.7/4.0 GPA 2 years working experiences in digital advertising agency as project planner / product marketer Currently working on UX side projects as I have relatively few experiences in the field I have okay relationships with my professors and boss (I think lol) I am currently researching programs I am interested in and their average/required scores; Sadly, a lot of schools do not have them posted. Any advice would be great and would be much appreciated! Thanks!
  20. Hi guys, I currently got accepted into NYU Interactive Telecommunication Program (no scholarship) and Pratt Information Experience Design (awarded with scholarship). Question: which one should I go for? I love both of the programs and they are both prestigious schools. The fact that Pratt has awarded with a fair amount of scholarship has indeed made it very tempting... On the other hand, the fame and community of NYU ITP are very fascinating to me as well. Could some give me any advice? Thanks a lot in advance
  21. 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 afterward (but I don't think job placement is an issue with CMU). I know that CMU is focused a little more on theory, but they still have the capstone project to help build a portfolio. If anyone is also making a similar decision please share your thoughts! Any insights to the program beyond what's on the websites would be really helpful. Thank you!
  22. I wrote a piece comparing MHCI and MDes program at CMU. I'm a junior student currently in the BHCI program, and I've been doing a lot of research on this while deciding which is the right program for me - a lot of the insights were not available on the Internet. Hopefully, it's helpful to some people! https://medium.com/@songyh1996/mdes-vs-mhci-carnegie-mellon-university-bfb185c71e63
  23. 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.
  24. I'm in the process of compiling a list of schools to apply to for in a few months to start in fall 2018. I am interested more in the information science side of things and would hope to pursue a career in user experience, information architecture, hci etc with a research focus. I am interested if anyone has applied or gone to mlis programs, especially in Canada with a similar background. So far I'm looking at U of T (for sure gonna apply) UBC (interested but not sure it would fit my focus) Do any of the of mlis programs in Canada fit this description?
