    PhD in CS UIUC Admit :)

    Sponsored Ad:
    I got an admit from UIUC for PhD in CS with aid, after rejects from Stan and CMU.

    Also got an admit from USC (wasn't sure where I stood, so applied as a safe bet)..

    Waiting to hear from Caltech and Gatech. My area of interest is Distributed computing. In most of the rankings I have come across, I see UIUC being ranked better than Caltech and Gatech. What do you say?

    I say congratulations because it is better and I am jealous

    Not only does UIUC rank better than GA Tech and Caltech for computer science, it also ranks better for the computer science specialty "systems," with UIUC ranking #5, GA Tech ranking #13, and Caltech ranking #19:
