have you heard from UMinnesota yet?
All your universities are tough to crack for a PhD.
Did you get rejected by UIC? (If yes, it would surprise me).
I donot know abt the NCSU Machine learning group though....
Can you share your profile?
I need some serious help at this point. I am a Graduate (MS) student in CS dept of SUNY Albany. I applied for PhD in CS for Fall 06 in the following schools :
3. University of Minnesota
4. NCSU - Raleigh
6. University of Illinois - Chicago
7. University of MA - Amherst
9. University of California - Irvine
Of all these the top 7 have intimated me abt the decision. just got an admit at NCSU, they are still takiing a decision on funding for me.
I want to do PhD at any cost. I was so depressed that i have all of a sudden started thinking of a job, if nothing goes well, but a break is what i hate.
How do you guys rate CS in NCSU, if my research interest is AI, Machine Learning and Data Mining

Welcome aboard... both to TestMagic and to the 2006 Losers' Club... : )
I can understand how you feel... one admit, and no aid in that one... I must admit that I do have a few more schools still in the pipeline...
As far as NCSU is concerned, I wouldn't really know about how good they are in your fields of interest, but otherwise its a pretty good school, and ranked 35 for Computer Engineering by USNews... if they give you aid, you should definitely consider it if the two remaining schools don't work out...
bealdia, I must say Congratulations, because you got into a school! NCSU isn't a bad school, and you made it out of 700 applicants! I applied to 12 PhD programs and got into none, so you are in a much better situation
Right now I have no choice but to get a job. Working for one or two years isn't bad if it's a research job and it should also help you to get into a better school next time (especially if you publish papers while working).
My Current GPA : 3.69/4.0
Out of the 9 univs that i mentioned in order, i heard from the first 7, UCI and OSU still left to notify me about their decisions.
I am working on a research project on Data Mining.
The current semester is my 4th sem of MS at SUNY Albany, Of the 4 sems, I have been a Teaching Assistant for 3 sems.
GRE : 1290/1600
TOEFL : 273/300
Dont even know how OSU and UCI would respond
