shr0d1nger Posted September 11, 2015 Share Posted September 11, 2015 (edited) Dear All!I have done my B.Tech in Metallurgy from IIT Kharagpur( 8.1 cg). I planned to go for MS in operations research but that didn't happen (GRE: 329 with 169 quant; TOEFL 108; Year 2012). After graduation(2013), I joined a financial tech company as a software developer where I supported their C++ product, then I switched to a quant dev role in a bank where I work in C++ to create in-house applications and do excel work.I have one paper in a elsevier journal on machine learning (2011). My primary interest lies in the same domain. Should I apply in this field given fierce competition?Or should I opt for less favoured ones? Or maybe go for HCI?Reco: One from the prof under whom I did the paper, one from my manager(maybe)I have worked mainly in C++, have some experience with web technologies. I have no UG coursework in CS apart from introductory one in first year; I have completed Algo I, II in Coursera and Machine Learning in both coursera and edx - thats it. Now I have a wish of doing MS in CS from one of the top schools in US. I have to give toefl again. Any suggestions on the schools that might consider me given my background? Thank you very much Edited September 11, 2015 by shr0d1nger Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
