emmasu Posted April 8, 2010 Share Posted April 8, 2010 Hi Everyone, I got the PhD offer from both UIUC molecular and cellular program and Emory biological and biomedical science program. Emory has a much larger program and it has its own hospital. So I think if only considering the program Emory should be better. I'm now concerning about the prestige of the two university. Since I'm not in US, I'm wondering which one is more famous. To be honest, I heard a lot about UIUC but little about Emory. I think this may due to the famous engineering school of UIUC. Another thing is the location. I haven't been to UIUC yet but I heard that it's in a "corn field" and cold in winter. But I also heard that Atlanta is not a safe place to live. However UIUC should be quite safe. P.S. The stipends offered are not much different considering the living cost. Can anyone share your opinion about these two, considering their prestige, location, and so on? THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
