Decision day is right around the corner--and I can't decide between the two schools. I am interested in inorganic synthesis (had been researching on nanomaterials and energy conversion in undergrad research). Both schools are providing stipends, both seem to have great professors in inorganic field.. any advice/feedback about the two schools would be appreciated!

Where are you from? Both schools are great (UIUC has a top CS department but I think UCLA is more steezy). UCLA will be a more pleasant living experience as urbana is in the middle of no where.  Being from LA I would personally choose UCLA, but that's just me. Maybe reach out two 2-3 POI's at each place or some grad students to see how hard it is to get a position in the lab you like.
