Funded PhD at UC Riverside or unfunded masters at Brown University


Recommended Posts

Hi All, 


I've been accepted to UC Riverside's PhD program in physics and Brown University's ScM program in physics for Fall 2014. UCR is funded and Brown offers no financial support with a tuition of ~$46,000. So its a risk of possibly paying ~140,000 with tuition/living expenses/etc…, but I will be supported by my parents though. I have the option to apply for the PhD program at Brown during my first year, and if accepted my second year will be covered, but this is not guaranteed. I want to get a PhD but I'm not 100% sure what I want to do after I get it. I think Brown would look nice on an application compared to UCR, if I go into something other than physics. Also, for industry, which holds more weight, masters from Brown or PhD from UCR. Any advice/information would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
