Hi!
I got admit to TAMU, NCSU and Rutgers. I'm mainly interested in theory and data mining. I would choose Rutgers but I heard that it takes extremely long time to obtain PhD at Rutgers. What are your opinions? Please help me to decide! I have to make my decision by April 15.
Thx

I would choose Rugers with my eyes shut if it were for Theory. They have a dedicated research group only for this.

Hi!
I heard 7 and 10 yrs. One of my teachers also obtained her PhD (but in math, not in CS) at Rutgers and it took 8 years for her.
Meet you in August at Rutgers! :) (or in August?)

i heard from a ms student of rutgers that u can complete ur phd in 4-5 years if u take more courses in early semesters and decide ur research topic and prof quickly.
i have got i-20 of ncsu saying 5 years to obtain phd and osu 6 years. but hell...rutgers says its 7 years :(

That's my problem too. I know that Rutgers is better than NCSU, but those extra years... It wouldn't be problem if I could work, but living only from GA...

No idea. I just know Rutgers has "brand name appeal."
