intervenient Posted June 6, 2013 Share Posted June 6, 2013 (edited) School: Top 50 nation, Top 40 CS Major: Computer Science B.A., emphasis in Computational Geography. GPA: Probably around ~3.4 by time I send applications in Research: 2 units of independent research in Geography under a respected and well-known researcher in the field of computational cartography. I haven't started, but the goal is to use OpenCV and apply it to spatial analysis. Teaching: At the time of applying, I'll have two quarter of being an undergraduate "moderator" for the intro to programming class. Basically I provide students in the class after hours help with labs and homework. Projects: - A full featured todo list. A personal pet project of mine - Contributing with a professor and group on a library used to automatically generate quizzes for the discrete mathematics course. Goal is to apply these methodologies to the intro programming course. Interests and Goals: Really, I just want to know more about CS and see if I'd be into research. I feel like my BA was a good primer, but I'd really like to dig a little deeper. Letters of Recommendation: I guess I won't know until I know, but I'd image they'd be a little better than average. I did well in all of the instructor's courses, and currently am in contact with them regarding projects, research, and the moderator duties I have. As far as schools go, off the top of my head, I'm most interested in: University of Chicago USC Stony Brook Cal Poly SLO The first three seem to have a good mix of applied and theoretical focus, and Cal Poly is relatively close to where I'm currently located, and is fairly inexpensive to boot. I should note that by time I graduate I'll have very little debt, which is why I'm considering schools with higher price tags. Can anyone suggest some programs I should be looking at, based on my profile? Thanks Edited June 6, 2013 by intervenient Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
