qualthian Posted December 23, 2013 Share Posted December 23, 2013 I really need some input for my decision. I am applying to Ph.Ds but if I am not admitted, which masters should I choose? University A: Times Rank: Between 200-225 in General, between 90-100 in technology. QS World Rank: Between 400-450 Advisor: ~1200 citations, not very good network outside of his country, not perfect match to my interests University B: Times Rank: None QS Rank: None Advisor: ~1800 citations, amazing network over the world, very good match ------------------ My opinion: Academia is a small world and if you work in a specific field, there are a limited number of people that work in that field and they usually know each other, either in person or by following their work. I feel like I should make my choice depending on the advisor, not ranking on the university. So a LOR from the advisor in university B can be way more helpful than a LOR from the advisor from university A. Because the professors from good universities know him. What do you think?
