Profile Evaluation for Fall 2022 PhD CS/Information Science


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 
I have been really worried about school selection for next year's application cycle since I have a few hiccups in my transcript (I had to retake a CS class -- not related to my research interests, and 2Ws from non-CS courses). I would really appreciate your evaluation!
Undergrad Institution: high-ranked liberal arts school in New York state. 
Major(s): Computer Science
GPA: 3.91 (overall and major) -- see the problems above. 
Type of Student: female Asian student 
Research Interests: Natural Language Processing, Computational Social Science

GRE General Test: not yet taken. 
Programs Applying: Information Science and Computer Science (wherever Info Sci is not offered)
Research Experience: (At your school or elsewhere? What field? How much time? Any publications or conference talks etc...)
  • REU in NLP at UT Austin. I've been working online there for over a year now because I really like the project. Our work will probably be submitted late November this year. 
  • REU in computer network at my home institution for 3 months. I have one paper published from this REU (co-first author with 3 other students) in a relatively good conference. 
  • Internship at the Data Science center of my home institution with a Math professor for over 2 years. I took my independent study and Data Analysis class with him. 
Relevant Coursework: NLP (audited at another uni), Recommender Systems (independent study), Data Analysis, Probability, Algorithms, Computer System, Human-Computer Interaction. 

Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Dean's List all semesters. 

Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Teaching Assistant for 2 years in Intro to CS class. 
Letters of Recommendation: 
  1. UT Austin REU prof. 
  2. Computer network prof at my school
  3. Math prof at my school


Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: I have been really worried about my transcript. 

Applying to Where:
  • Cornell 
  • University of Washington 
  • UT Austin 
  • UChicago 
  • Georgia Tech 
  • UC Berkeley

What do you guys think? Is there any school that may fit my range?
