Hi Raady,

Good to know your admit into ncsu. yes i do have friends in ncsu as well. i am contemplating on selecting ncsu. aid for ms students is less in ncsu, but there are better job-fairs, co-ops and interns.

let me tell more once i call my friend. what are your other admits?

Raady,

I have admits from Ohio state, NCSU, ASU and Buffalo too.

Mostly i wont consider buffalo. There is a close tie for NCSU/ASU/Ohio..
But Ohio is pretty high ranked..thats why i am thinking a lot..

NCSU is very good for n/w s. But aid scenario is bad everywhere in the US.

Let me know your personal ID.
