    Columbia SEAS pr Cornell Engg (MEng)

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi

    I have been accepted to both Columbia (MS) and Cornell (MEng) programs. Which one is a better program? I am undecided about doing a PhD right now. MBA is another option I am looking forward to.

    Will appreciate a reply.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Congratulations!!! I have applied to Columbia MEng program as well and I am awaiting a reply. When did you hear from them and how long did it take to process you application. I am anxious to hear as well.. As far as a comparison between Columbia vs Cornell, I would say that columbia is a better option, but both are still excellent programs and you should feel very proud of yourself for your achievement.
    Please post some info on your scores as well...
    Thanks and Good luck..

    My scores were 1500 GRE and 117 toefl. gpa 7.6/10 (distiction)

    I too am inclined towards columbia. Cornell is the MEng program whereas Columbia is MS (research thesis). Also Columbia offers a chance to apply for an RA/TA. Cornell program has no fin aid .

    I applied to Columbia in the middle of Jan. Got the response in the first week of March.

    Thank You.

    Best of luck!

    Did you contact any professors regarding your interest to work with them before you applied. I was just curious if I should start doing the same. Thanks again..

    No. i did not contact any professor at Columbia. At Cornell I did write to one professor, but he never responded. (my email was very generic and without a resume) I guess your decision shud also be coming within a week.

    best of luck

    Did you decide where to attend?
    Also, did you get any TA/RA from Columbia? How does one apply for that?

    Cornell will be releasing the fin aid decisions in two weeks. If i get fin aid at cornell then will go there. else columbia. will apply for ra/ta positions once i enroll for the program at either of the schools.

    Best of luck

    I was also accepted to Columbia Meng program but no mention of financial aid. I have no idea how one applies to TA/RA positions, esp. from very far away. Please advice.

    Best of Luck

    I did contact one of my friends who is currently enrolled in the PhD (CS) program at Columbia. According to him, once you join the dept. then only can you apply for the RA/TA positions.

    Best of Luck
