Computer Science Northeastern Phd vs UMASS Masters

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

please help me decide. I have got a full fund Phd from Northeastern and a Masters offer from UMASS. UMASS ranks MUCH better but it will take almost all my savings. On the other hand, I would like to have a masters to use professionally rather than a PhD for research. please help me decide.

Disagree. PhD pushes you into research even the first couple years. You may even burn some bridges in quitting like that. Some schools won't let you duck out with a Master's. You won't have nearly as much time to work on your portfolio for jobs.
