I know the ranking as such but how about the prospects after MS? Jobs and how is it rated in the industry?

I don't know the exact situation, but given the ranking and the location of the school it shouldn't be bad.

Masters applicant here. The last few weeks have been nerve wracking as I have awaited results.

Here are my stats:

Undergrad: Architectural Engineering, GPA 3.3

GRE: V550/Q760/A5.0

Professional Experience: 2 years with general contractor

Last week I found out I was admitted to Politecnico di Milano for Architectural Engineering. Berkeley and Stanford are my dream, but they seem like a long shot. Anyway, thought I would add my info, and will keep you posted what I hear from schools.

To those applying to Stanford: Do you think we will be notified by email or by postal letter? It seems like decisions should come out soon because they have a visitation scheduled for all accepted applicants on March 16. They have to give people enough time to get tickets and get there, right?

Congrats!!! Your profile looks great! If you don't mind me asking - did you happen to receive funding for MS?

I applied for funding, and my letter says that they realize I want funding but that no funding decisions have been made yet and they will have all funding decisions made by April 7th. Not sure how true that is (has anyone else heard about funding?). Hoping that I get funding since there is no way I can go to Stanford without funding.

Just received an email from a professor from Berkeley telling me the following:

"Mr Diaz

Your application is currently being reviewed by the Admissions Committee.

You will hear from them by the end of March.

Meanwhile, please summarize your funding details."

Does this mean that own funding is really necessary to ensure admissions??? It sucks if that's the case! :(

Yeah, I would definitely need funding too. Congrats nonetheless!

I received my admission letter today by email. The letter didn't say nothing concrete about funding. It said that the faculties are waiting on their funding proposals. If they receive any grants, I will be considered for assistantship and will be notified by email. But they invited me to their open house on March 23. I wasn't expecting decisions from Northeastern this early. Hopefully you will get your decision in a day or two.

Which other schools did you apply?
