  1. Hello! I have narrowed my list down to these two schools and I am trying to make the decision and would love an outside perspective! Wisconsin Madison: Pros: *Tons of labs that interest me, including a relatively famous PI who has shown interest in me *a location that really appeals to me (though I have never been) *good impression during visit days, people had good work life balance, the school seemed very supportive etc. Cons: *stipend seems a little low (even taking into account COL) especially because you have to pay student fees and health insurance premiums *students seemed a little aimless, like no one could really answer what are you planning after grad school? Career development did not seem to be a big focus *far from family Yale: Pros: *A select few faculty whose research I find very compelling and who have indicated I could work with them. My work is also closely adjacent to biophysics and Yale is one of the best places in the country for that research *Very generous stipend (including a fellowship and great health insurance) *Close to family *school name carries weight if I were to leave research *many career development opportunities Cons: *location does not appeal to me *most faculty I am interested in are new faculty and I worry about funding and tenure and their inexperience with mentoring *small department Let me know what you think! Thank you!
  2. I finished applying and sent in my applications on October 23rd, 2019. I applied to U-Mich, OSU, CWRU, and UW-Madison. I have a 3.756 GPA, internship experiences at Brigham and Women's Hospital NICU, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and some local classrooms. Is this a strong application/resume? Also, when did you hear back if you applied to these schools?
  3. Have applied to few MSW programs across the states, so far I got admitted by the Univ. of Washington-Seattle and the Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison. I am still waiting for UC-Berkeley. My immediate post-graduation goal is to work with immigrants (especially Asians), hopefully concentrating on community development or clinical social work. My ultimate goal is to get a PhD and be a researcher in the field. I know both schools are excellent and I am thrilled I have been admitted. Studying in Seattle has been my dream, but Wisconsin-Madison is also prestigious and, tuition-wise, much cheaper. At the same time, I heard to be considered for top PhD programs, where you study for MSW is becoming increasingly important. (Please note that I am an international student and not eligible for any federal loans or most of the scholarship programs.) Would it be better to save and go to Wisconsin - or go to Washington-Seattle (and if admitted, Berkeley) higher in the US news ranking? Do you think the rank will eventually impact my PhD application in the future? Any tips or advice?
  4. I've just learned I'm admitted to these schools for MS in Computer Science, and they are my only serious contenders at this point. A few things that are factors for me: - I am already at Columbia (School of Continuing Education), and the 3 graduate-level courses I am taking now will transfer in directly. UCLA MAY let me transfer in two of these pending a petition to the department. Wisconsin will not take any transfer credit. - I am out of state for UCLA and Wisconsin so cost is comparable to each other and Columbia - I've been in New York for almost 4 years and am getting a little sick of it - I think I'd rather end up on the west coast after I graduate, but would like whatever school I choose to be held in high regard on either coast - My number one concern is the quality of job I'll be able to find when I graduate I am interested in Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning and Software/Networks engineering. Any thoughts from those with some knowledge about this area would be helpful. Thanks!
  5. [sorry for the repost -- I just learned of my acceptance to the third school, and I didn't realize there was a sweet poll option! Please factor in my personal considerations when voting, and thank you! ] I've just learned I'm admitted to these schools for MS in Computer Science, and they are my only serious contenders at this point.
