  1. A sad news:(. I will surely check out his last lecture soon. I first learned about him while I was browsing the pages of Entertainment Technology Center that he established, and through his very informative white paper: "An Academic's Field Guide to Electronic Arts".
  2. I believe SB is better (in terms of ranking, research & location).
  3. AFAIK Computer Sc. @ Stony Brook is very good, i don't thing Stony Brook is very good in Computer Engg. Computer Science @ SBuffalo should be very good. What would you like to study Comp. Sc. or Comp. Engg?
  4. Sorry i shouldn't have said that without learning much about UK CS degrees, but i've searched some universities in my areas of preference and they were 1 year course based degrees without a thesis. Old UK degrees used to be 3 years BS and 1 Year MS (equivalent to 4 year BS in US), i don't know if they have changed it or not. But if the UK MS level degrees are like complements of BS degrees i think the US standard is must better for Masters level. One more thing i have learned from some of my friends on UK, that generally EU students gets preference over other students in getting phd funding, job etc. And on Masters level its hard to manage funds for education for non-EU ppl.
  5. Utah CS decisions should be out, check your online application (i got dinged!), i'm still waiting for Stony Brook and UMBC. IMO US 2 year MS degrees are much better than UK, most of which are 1-1.5 years.
  6. Congratulations! UNC and Utah are both great if you are interested in Graphics, and UNC is most probably the best in US. So UNC might be the better choice :tup: . Utah was my #1 university but i didnt make it :( Good Luck!
  7. First of all congrats!!! If you go for PhD straight away (many US universities prefer it that way, like Columbia) consider Utah. I think that the MS in Columbia is considered as a terminal degree and doesn't necessarily lead to PhD and aid is tough too. Utah is one of the best in CG research (Columbia as well!) so if you want to pursue a research career in graphics its the best option IMO. Be sure to check out their CG labs & professors before making your final decision. Now a days profs/students/graduates are making significant contributions in the conferences and working in companies like ATI/Nvidia or profs in premier universities. I hope you make the best possible decision.
  8. congratulations :tup: Great to know that someone from BD got into Columbia. Good luck!!!
  9. Congratulations!!! :tup: I also re-applied to SB but didn't get any decision yet :rolleyes:
  10. One cousin of mine did his BS in ECE and MS in CE from there maybe 5-7 years ago. That time they had good co-op programs to help students. I don't know how good it is now. Its not highly ranked though and probably very costly too.
  11. Good job brother rob!!! Congrats. I think i can help some of my friends with your tips who are pursuing MBA.
  12. I'm not sure what are you talking about, but i think the first line should clearly state your goal, and i couldn't have written it in a more simple way.
  13. What our recommenders did is keep the space in the comment section of the form blank and attach the letter they gave to me with the form (or write 'see attached letter' in the blank space). They signed in the letter too. This way they don't have to write all the comments in the blank section.
