CMU vs USC vs Stony Brook

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I would really love your opinions on my admits as I have to make a decision soon and am unsure of which to choose.

Here are my admits with total costs:

 

Carnegie Mellon University (INI) - MS Information Security Technology and Management - $48,000 or $68,000 depending on when you finish. (12k scholarship)

SUNY Stony Brook : MS Computer Science - $23,000

University of Southern California : MS Computer Science - $37,500 (5k scholarship)

 

I am not too interested in research or pursuing a PhD so I am mainly concerned about getting a job afterwards.

 

CMU's program is top notch but I am not sure if it is worth the cost. I am leaning towards Stony Brook since it is so cheap and a great program.

 

I would appreciate some advice on this. Good luck to everyone this season!

What sub-area are you interested in at Computer Science? Stony Brook has really good faculty if you want to specialize in Computer Vision!

Hi, thanks for the response.

 

I am not completely sure about which area to specialize in but I am mostly interested in Systems and Software Engineering. CMU is famous for their courses in systems but I am unsure if this would justify the high cost. Do you have any input on these sub-areas at Stony Brook?
