charlesandjoy Posted February 23, 2011 Share Posted February 23, 2011 I got offers from both schools in doctorate program and I have been going through a hard decision process. Upenn enjoys relatively higher overall reputation while Maryland is better in Engineering and in my field. As I understand, the professor that will be my research advisor in Upenn is a little bit 'push' and lead a very small group(2 PhDs) and the professor from Maryland is very famous and of course very busy, which means he gives limited directions himself to students and require the independent research from his students. My career plan after PhD degree is to enter industry and start with a job somewhere. Which one do you think would be better choice for me? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
