Got admits from UC San Diego and University of Southern California for the MS program in Electrical Engineering. I want to specialize in signal and image processing.

I still have a lot of reading to do on these two schools, but any insights would be appreciated.

I guess the deciding factors for me is:

1. Quality of education

  • Faculty
  • Facilities
  • Research
    Just from first impressions, it seems like the campus, classrooms, and labs are nicer at USC.

    2. Job prospects after graduation
    • Job placement rate
    • Overall recruiter evaluations of graduates

From looking at US News and World rankings, recruiter scores are a little higher for UCSD (3.8 / 5) than USC (3.5 / 5).

3. Cost

USC is pretty freaking expensive compared to UCSD.

4. Location

I guess both Los Angeles and San Diego are nice places to be rolleyes.gif
