Recommended Posts

Saw there wasn't a thread for DS masters applicants this year yet. Feel free to share any information!

My info:

Applied:

  • Stanford MS in Computer Science (planning to specialize in info management and analytics)
  • USC MS in Computer Science (Data Science emphasis)
  • University of Pennsylvania MS in Data Science
  • Harvard MS in Data Science
  • NYU MS in Data Science
  • Columbia MS in Data Science

Interviewing:

  • University of San Francisco  MS in Data Science (Has anyone gone though the interview and is willing to share their experience?)

Accepted: 

  • USC MS in Applied Data Science (I heard back on Dec 15, which is surprisingly early)

Hi! Did you have your interview for USF yet? If so, how technical were the questions?

@cpabal It wasn't very technical at all. Questions were on "big picture" concepts rather than specific math problems and coding questions like those on Leetcode.

I also knew I screwed up a bit on some of the questions but the interviewer was really nice and I was just accepted today so I wouldn't stress too much about it.

Anyone received NWU Analytics program interview? Does receiving an interview mean having a higher chance of acceptance or it's simply that they want more information from you? Also, anyone willing to share their interview experience with the NWU Analytics program?

Applied:

UPenn DS

NWU Analytics

MIT

NYU

Columbia

Rejected:

UPenn

Admitted: None yet

It looks like people who got accepted to Harvard got an informal email today. If you didn't get one, I think it's safe to assume you were rejected. (I didn't get an email either). Formal results should be coming out soon.

I haven't heard anything back yet, but I have seen a lot of others either getting a decision or an interview offer. 

Applied:

NYU

Columbia

Georgia Tech

CMU

NWU

UPenn DS (Applied on Nov 22, haven't heard back)

Cornell DS 

NC State University

Is it bad that I didn't get any of the first batch of interviews? Or have they not reviewed my applications yet?

@Haoyun  Most of the decisions on the results page were acceptances on Jan 15 which for people who applied by the early deadline. It looks like UPenn is now doing rolling admissions by releasing new decisions every Friday for those who applied after.
