  1. It’s quite a hard choice for me… Let me first describe a bit about my struggle. I wanna pursue an academic career in the discipline of international relations. My main research interests include international cooperation, IR theory, IOs, and Asia-Pacific. Both schools have very significant pros and cons in my view. ANU is a leading institution in Asia-Pacific studies and very rich in academic resources. However, I tend to complete my doctoral studies (PhD) in the US. As you guy may know, ANU is a base for the English School (emphasize the value of traditional research methods, which means I won’t have enough quantitative training if I choose to study at ANU). And I worry that if my quantitative background is weak, it might hurt my chance to get into top US universities (well, honestly, I found the English School is attracted to me, whereas I still more fond of scientific behaviorism with regard to research methodology…). Also, the location of ANU make me even more hesitate… (in Canberra). University of Kent, Brussels + VTech (DC campus) can hugely widen my perspective I guess since these two cities are the political centers and have plenty of IOs. In addition, I suppose if I get a US degree (by VTech), it would be easier for me to apply for other American universities. And I might be able to build my networking in the region of DC. But these two schools seem not as prestigious as ANU in the field of IR. So, I am concern about it might influence my academic career if I cannot get good enough academic training in these two schools. Hence, my questions can be simply summary as follow: 1) Is ANU’s IR programme highly recognized in the US? Will it affect my chance to get into US universities for PhD? (in the negative sense) 2) Is VTech’s Government and International Affairs programme (the programme I admitted in) known in the US? Or would you say it good? My apologize for type a lot, but I really want to describe my concerns clearly. Thank you guys!
  2. Hey everyone I recently got accepted to NC state and Virginia tech for a masters of science in aerospace engineering. I know that the department of aerospace engineering is rated much higher at VT than at NC State and I think I prefer who I would be working under at VT possibly more than at State, but I think I like the Raleigh area more as well as the campus and I will have to fight for funding at both places in the upcoming fall and I am in state for NC state. I also understand that I will only be at the school for two years and I am there to learn not be out and about all the time. Still I was wondering what everyone else's thoughts about the two schools were and if anyone could add some input to help me decide.
  3. I have got acceptance from both schools with 3 years of funding. Both places have a choice of 3-4 professor who can be my advisor. The area of research - aeroelasticity, wind turbine and smart structure are present in both schools. The funding amount is almost the same. My question is with regards to choice of career after PhD - 1. Academia 2. Industrial Research and 3. National Labs
  4. Hi everyone! I just got accepted into the MS program for Mechanical Engineering. Looking forward to meeting everyone!
  5. Which School do you prefer? All schools guarantee full funding and similar stipend for me. If not engineering, is Cornell the best?
  6. Does anyone get admission decisions from Virginia Tech in this FAll 2018 MS in Mechanical Engineering? Anyone know their final date for the decisions? URGENT !!
  7. Hi All, I'm from California, fairly liberal, openly queer, car-less, and just applied to schools all over the country for my MFA in creative writing, including Sarah Lawrence, Rutgers, University of Alabama, Iowa Writers' Workshop, Virginia Tech, University of Houston, and University of Texas. I'm wondering if these cities/colleges are accepting? And is there a queer scene at all, either at the college or in the city? Further, I don't have a car, and I've never traveled to any of these places. Are there other means to get around? Could I bike, take the bus, walk? Or is everything spread out? Thank you! Also, if anyone has any favorite spots in any of these areas, feel free to share.
  8. My GRE score is 166Q and 154V. My Undergrad CGPA is 3.77/4.00 and have 3 years industry experience. Can anyone please share from their experience what are the things virginia tech looks for in an individual that I should highlight in my SOP. I intend to apply in Fall 18.
  9. Hello, I am an international student and I got admits from University of Michigan-Ann Arbor for M.Eng. in Manufacturing Engineering and Virginia Tech for M.S. in Industrial Engineering. I am still confused between the two mostly because of the significant difference in cost. Advantages of UMich: 1. Better ranked university. It’s 2nd compared to Virginia which is 6th. (https://www.usnews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-engineering-schools/industrial-engineering-rankings). 2. Better location 3. I find the course to be better. 4. I got an admit to the Tauber Institute which gives a guaranteed, paid internship. Advantages of VTech: 1. Cheaper than UMich. VTech I-20 amount is approximately $25000 less. 2. It is an M.S. course so I have a higher chance of getting an assistantship. 3. Cost of living is less. I would be glad if people on this forum would give me their opinions.
  10. Hi, I will be joining Virginia Tech's PhD program in Computer Engineering. Anybody else got admits here ? I have some background in Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Robotics, and I guess I will be pursuing research along these lines. However, of late, I have started picking up different interests, ranging from genetics to anthropology to music. So, I would definitely love to be part of a diverse community to exchange ideas about well, anything under the sun. If anybody out there is looking for a roommate or would like to connect, with a knack for movies, board games, comics, beer, up for a random discussion that can begin with Game of Thrones and end at the International Space Station, please do contact here.
  11. I have been admitted to the Masters program at Virgina Tech, Blacksburg Campus. I have completed my undergraduation in electrical engineering. My work experience lies in the automotive industry. My area of focus is in Software and Machine Intelligence or Signals and Systems. I could choose between these two. I intend to study subjects concerning Machine Learning and work towards a thesis in autonomous systems. Since, I do not have any substantial coding experience, just self-taught Python etc., I would like suggestions on choosing the coursework for the graduate program. I plan to have the following courses to satisfy the program requirements - Pattern Recognition Convex Optimization Deep Learning Advanced Machine Learning Probabilistic Graphical Models and Structured Predictions Advanced Topics in Intelligent Systems Theory of Algorithms I plan to learn Data Structures, Java, Python and build up a strong mathematical background in the next three months, before graduate school starts. I also intend to work in a lab, to perform research for my thesis or towards a project. I am afraid that my coursework is quite heavy, though those fears may be unfounded. Any advice on choosing the coursework for a non CS background guy would be appreciated. Any leads on preparing for this courses would also be appreciated! Thanks!

  13. Anyone in any of the biology/biomedical graduate programs at these universities or with any insight about these institutes? I am an international so it's hard to know how these schools are viewed in the US. Rankings-wise they all seem to be mid-tier, with decent reputations. Any other insights on biotech industry and living standards in the surrounding areas would be appreciated as well. Thanks in advance.
  14. So I got into Georgia Tech with a TA and Virginia Tech with some crazy fellowship thing that seems like it guarantees me 2 years at 30k but is renewable and ill get all 6 years funded by it. Georgia Tech seems to have everything besides the funding... better advisor(s) and more closely aligned research goals. What do I do?
  15. I received an email from Virginia Tech and they sent me an immigration form to fill up. It has a funding info section and I'm not sure what to fill in it. This is how they responded when I mailed them about not confirmed about funding sources : " Good morning! During the admissions process applicants who indicate that they wish to be considered for funding are considered for financial support from the AOE Department in the form of graduate teaching assistantships, graduate research assistantships, and fellowships if their application is submitted by the deadline for admission with funding (December 30th). The individuals receiving graduate teaching assistantships are notified at the time the admissions offer is extended of the financial support. Fellowships are used to supplement graduate teaching assistantship offers. Faculty members have the opportunity to review all of the applications and determine whether they wish to offer a graduate research assistantship to an applicant. The offer of admission with financial support from the faculty member is then extended to the applicant. The department is unable to offer financial support to all applicants to the program, and thus, it is very competitive. Applicants are encouraged to also seek external financial support in the form of graduate fellowships, loans, etc. external to the university. Departments within the College of Engineering are required to have funding information from international applicants for the first year of the graduate program ($43,000.00 USD) in order to admit them into the program. This has been established to ensure that international graduate students have the financial resources that are needed for them to be successful as a graduate student within the USA. An admissions decision has not been made on your application. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I will be glad to help! " So what do I do here?
