  1. Program- MS Electrical (Power System) Finally, confused between 3- NCSU, Virginia Tech, and TU Delft. Out of the currently received admits, which will be the best. (Considering- University Program Reputation, Academic Strength, Job/Intern Prospects) I like 3-4 professors in each of the above universities and their ongoing projects. This has made me more confused. Please help. Have to decide one by April first week. ---- Thanks in advance!!!
  2. The University of Southern California or Virginia Tech, which is better for M.S. in mechanical?
  3. I got accepted into both the MS. Data Science program at the University of Virginia and the MS Analytics program at NC State. Both are 10 months and are rigorous. NCSU's program is more established, but UVA's brand name seems bigger and more focused on emerging tech like R. I hear NCSU is primarily focused on SAS training. Both seem good job opportunity wise, UVA has a 100% employment rate with good companies and NCSU is up there as well, and I'm international so job opportunities after graduating is important to me. Any thoughts on both programs? How are they? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  4. Hi everyone! I recently got accepted into an experimental psychology master's program at Radford University. I'm super excited but quite nervous. I'll be moving from Florida to Virginia alone. Does anyone have any moving advice for me? Currently looking into places to live but it'll also be my first time living on my own, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, any words of wisdom for grad school? Thank you!!
  5. Which of these two schools would be suitable for embedded systems? My interests are in embedded software development and system design.My end goal is to enter the industry asap since I already have relevant work experience as an embedded software developer. Please clarify in terms of courses, financial assistance opportunities and job opportunities . I'm confused and finding it difficult to choose.Need a different pov/opinion/guidance. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  6. So which of the two is better? MS ECE in NCSU vs MEng ECE Virginia Tech. I chose these mainly for embedded systems, but in a dilemma now. Course wise NCSU is spread out while Virginia tech is specific to certain areas but both are good in heir own way. Please suggest tips on how to proceed or suggest which school to choose. It would also great if someone told about each of the programs at these schools in general.

    UVA 2017

    Searched and searched, but couldn't find one for UVA. Any other incoming graduate students here? I'm in Religious Studies.
  8. Hi everyone! I am Sheila and I am 23 years old. I am moving to Washington DC (or nearby neighborhoods) in the mid-August to attend GWU as an international student. Looking for 1-4 roommates to find and share decent apartment in good neighborhood.I am particularly interested in following areas: Foggy Bottom, Crystal City, Pentagon City, Courthouse, Rosslyn, Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, Georgetown. My budget is about 800 USD for a separate/shared room. About myself: open-minded, optimistic, calm person who respects other people's privacy and enjoys good company. Graduate students, young professionals from DC area are welcome to send a message to me, would be very interested to talk and possibly connect about finding shared housing)
  9. 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.
  10. I need your help... I am figuring out which option is better:A. Master of Engineering (professional master) in Mechanical Engineering at UIUC. Dream school!! very expensive B. MS Engineering Mechanics at Virginia Tech. Awesome program and affordable.C. MS Mechanical Engineering at Colorado Boulder (non-thesis). Great program. Affordable. Plenty of job opportunities and nice location. I am not sure how the job market is near UIUC or VTech, but I would need a job to complement my scholarship and pay for tuition...Any advise? Thanks!
  11. 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.
  12. I am an undergrad beginning applications next Fall semester, and I need advice on my current school list and perhaps any experience with the schools or living in the cities. I am primarily interested in Southern literature, theory, identity, and philosophy, Civil War literature, history, and philosophy like Transcendtalism, and African American literature from pre-Civil War to now. I plan to pursue an MA first then go on to a PhD. My current top two MA schools and potential advisers or professors with whom I am interested in working are Leigh Anne Duck and Adam Gussow at University of Mississippi and Cody Marrs at University of Georgia. Aside from University of Mississippi and Georgia, my list includes, in order, University of Alabama and Kentucky, and if I decide to pursue Rhet/Comp instead, University of Illinois. My dream PhD schools are UNC Chapel Hill and University of Virginia. I am confident in getting a good placement for the MA level, but I am concered about things like living stipend, fit with the university, and potential for improvement before moving to PhD. I have a strong application which I think will place me at the top of any MA level group of entering students, but I do not think it would be strong enough to ensure me a spot at my dream PhD schools. I will definitely be applying to an MA at Miss., Georgia, Alabama, and Kentucky. Would the application fees be worth it to also apply to PhD at UNC or Virginia? Does anyone have experience with Mississippi or Georgia and their faculty working in Southern Lit? What are some schools I am not considering which also have strong Southern lit faculty? What is it like to live in Oxford, Tuscaloosa, Athens, or Lexington? How do the costs of living compare? Of the four, Alabama and Georgia offer the highest MA living stipend at $13,500 and $14,000 respectively, but Georgia expects a much higher teaching load at 3/3 for the second year. Mississippi offers $10,000, and I do not yet know Kentucky's stipend. I have chosen each of these MA schools because they offer funding. Mississippi is my top interest, but they also have the lowest stipend offer. How likely am I to get other fellowships or scholarships in addition? Will $10,000 go very far in Oxford? That is already below my lowest margin for a stipend, but Mississippi seems like where I want to be for Southern lit.
  13. I'm a prospective applicant to the PhD program in the Department of Political Science at UVa. My focus is in the IPE arena, and I'm interested in working with Herman Schwartz or Sonal Pandya. I'd like to hear from a current student or recent graduate of the program about funding opportunities, RA, TA, and fellowship opportunities within the Department, student engagement with faculty, and perceptions of faculty overall. Is the general feeling that PhD students are well supported throughout their time at UVa? Side-comments about living in Charlottesville are also appreciated! Please feel free to PM me if preferred.
  14. I recently got accepted to the University of Virginia's Curry School of Education, University of Maryland's program, and Boston College's Lynch School of Education. I have an interview with Johns Hopkins this week. For secondary ed, UVA and Maryland are both ranked highly for secondary ed, but Johns Hopkins is ranked as the #2 school of education in the country. The programs are pretty much the same in terms of coursework and internships, they're all one year teaching programs. How much does ranking matter? Johns Hopkins has the best name, but should I be concerned of a lack of secondary ed ranking? Thanks in advance!
  15. Hi everyone, I am a Vietnamese immigrant and I finished Law school with a Bachelor degree. I am intending to switch my career to either Finance or IT and thinking of either starting-over or going -up for Master. I have asked many people for their views as followings: 1. My degree: A. Starting-over: going to NOVA then George Mason because this option is the safest that I can completely comprehend the education principles, cultures, environments and, for the most important part (according to them), that I can be eligible for the Pells and Grants; B. Going-up: getting a technical certificate of my my desired major at a vocational public school (Adults and Community Education center Fairfax County) then applying for a job, working there for months then admitting to a private school with my evaluated undergraduate transcript; C. Going-up: going to NOVA for an Associate degree or, at least, a career certificate, then applying for a job, working there for months then admitting to a private school with my evaluated undergraduate transcript. My uncle suggests me (B) because he used to do it successfully with a Master degree in IT at Strayer University. However I cannot find any institute offering financial aid so I am in favor with (C) - it is, to me, a safer-but-still-quick option. 2. My major: I am in favor with Finance instead of IT or Computer because I can figure out what I gonna study and do with Finance, while IT is so wide... If I have to go with, Cyber Security may be my choice. The thing is I only have chances to meet people from Strayer with degrees in IT or Computer, while the reviews in forum give me various of both good and bad views on its accounting and finance programs. Thus, i wish to receive your kindly views on the followings: A. Which one is easier to study? It may be focused on math, logic or critical thinking; B. Which one requires more certificates? C. Which one has a smoother career route? D. Which one can support you to get a good pay job after graduate, or, increase the pay more quickly? Please feel open to share and comment because I am begging for your views and, if I am blessed, your pieces of advice. I do appreciate your attention. God bless you all!
  16. Has anyone applied to Phd programs within Curry? Seems to be radio silence from UVA. Anxiously awaiting. Applied to higher ed program.
