OK, good idea!
MIT (PhD CS)
Western Ontario (Canada)
Still waiting for decisions.
I thought it might be neat to see where everyone is applying and what they've heard back. So anyone who applied to CS grad school this year, whether its MS or PhD, post where you applied and who've you've heard from.
As for me:
Maryland (Applied Math and Scientific Computation)
Harvard (Systems Bio, not CS)
Carnegie Mellon (Computers, Organization, and Society)
Still waiting on :
Also, thegradcafe trend seems to be that internationals may be reviewed separately, since I see predominately internationals posting results at this time. If you wouldn't mind specifying whether or not you are international, it might be interesting to compare the TM population with thegradcafe population.
As for me, I am American.
I presume from your list that you are from Canada? I wonder how Canadians are treated in the application process at American schools. I mean technically you are internationals but presumably there would be a lot less difficulty on average bringing Canadians down than from all over the world. Out of your remaining places, what is your top choice?
Well, not actually. I'm Iranian and I live and study in Malaysia. So, yes, there is enough difficulty for me to move to US/Canada (you know we have 12 hours time difference with you guys! That's right at the other side of the earth!).
My top choice would be Purdue, but I don't really know what are the criteria they are looking for! So, Just wish me luck.
Congrats, these are super admitsI've Applied and been accepted to all five:
UC Berkeley (EE/CS PhD)
CMU (CS PhD)
NYU (CS PhD)
Rice University (CS PhD)
University of British Columbia, Canada (CS MSc)
I remember your superb AGRE score, but would you mind sharing the rest of your profile?
GRE CS 870, 97th percentile
BA in CS, Summa Cum Lauda from a top-150 university (according to the 2007 Shanghai Jiao Tong University ranking - their methodology is a bit woo-woo, so it's just to give a reference).
3 conference papers (fortunately it seems that no one in the committee read them ).
Almost 8 years of experience in an industrial research lab and in the industry in a field closely related to the one I want to do my PhD in. I tried to make my SOP as focused as possible.
I selected schools according to potential advisers, and would be very happy to work with all of them.
Also, I thought you people might be interested to learn that in my SOP for both of the places I've been accepted so far (UMich and UMD), I mentioned how much I looked forward to rooting for their sports teams! Just an interesting coincidence, or do big state schools consider this a plus in an application?
