kristine22 Posted February 1, 2018 Share Posted February 1, 2018 Hi all, I was hoping everybody could give me a little insight on what is going into their decision making process between schools, and what factors you weigh most heavily when selecting between more than one offer of admission. My situation right now (I am a MSc applicant) is one acceptance and one follow up interview, with moderately good chances of admission. The follow up interview is with a prestigious school (2-3 in the country, I am not in the US so it isn't Ivy League) in an incredible city to live in. The project is a little out of my desired field and the professor seems nice, and I could definitely make do with this project and do well here. The acceptance I have is for a second-tier school (8-9 ranked in the country) in an OK but not raved about city. However, this professor is extremely excited to work with me and the project is exactly in my field of interests. I can see myself becoming very passionate about this project and have a lot of experience in the field. Both project would give me good career prospects and both professors have great connections. I suppose my question is, are you guys making your choices based on school prestige or on the potential research you will be doing? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
