RD16 Posted April 26, 2013 Share Posted April 26, 2013 Hi, I have recently been admitted to the Master's program in Computer Science at these three universities. I am really confused about which one to join. These are some of my basis for differentiation ( not in any order of preference): 1. Rankings - US News ranks Johns Hopkins (28) > UF (39) > UC Santa Cruz (53) Having seen these rankings, JHU is great for Natural Language Processing, but how good is it for other branches in C.S. ? How much does ranking matter for jobs? 2. Coursework - The coursework seems to be more or less similar in all three, however, JHU has very interesting courses in NLP as compared to the other two and I like the subject, which is putting me into a dilemma. The positive point of UCSC is it gives more opportunities for innovation as most courses end in a 'research project'. 3. Weather/Safety- UC Santa Cruz > UF > JHU 4. Jobs/ Internships - UC Santa Cruz probably has more opportunities since it is close to the bay area but not sure of how it would measure compared to the other two. 5. Research opportunities- These would probably be more at UCSC since JHU has clearly stated they do not give it to Master's candidates. I would be very grateful if someone helped me out with this decision. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
