kickpuncher Posted December 18, 2010 Share Posted December 18, 2010 Hi, everyone. This is my first post here. I went to UCLA to study Electrical Engineering. I'm now applying to grad schools at UC Santa Cruz, UC Irvine, UC Riverside, UC Santa Barbara, and UC Davis. Here's the thing, though. The only reason I'm applying is because I'm having trouble finding a job. I wasn't very passionate about EE as an undergrad, and I actually have a low GPA (between 2.9 and 3). When I was at UCLA, the area of EE that most interested me was DSP and speech/image processing. I took a few classes in the subject and did okay (B's and A's). So now, I want to apply to these grad schools and mention, in my statement of purpose, that I want to study signal processing. But I don't really know what to say. Yes, I found it more interesting than all the other things I studied in EE, but I certainly was never planning on specializing in it in grad school. I did okay in the classes, and found them interesting, but not interesting enough that I planned on going to grad school to study the subject. So what should I say?
