MS Admit Confusion
0
0
Hello,

I have been accepted to the University of Florida for their MS in Biomedical Engineering. I talked to a lot of seniors there and realized that the job scenario is almost non-existent there. I'm not yet sure whether i would want to pursue a PhD, but I definitely want to pay off my loan before I go into that. Moreover a PhD at UF won't pay much, so that's not going to help either. I will be completing my bachelors this year, so I was wondering whether I should apply for Fall 18 again? I will probably have a slightly better profile too. But I am unsure of whether I should let this go. Any help would be appreciated!

Can you fill in your info bank with University admits/rejects?

If PhD is not a priority, then, Urbana is an impressive opportunity.

BTW, UFL is not bad in biomedical. In fact, in the area I work on BCI (Brain Computer Interface), they are serious competitors. They have strong ECE department and nanofab facility that complement their strength.

Urbana is of course Urbana with its rankings.

cheers,

EE

I declined the offer already!
The thing is, I had never ruled out a PhD completely, hence MS programs are a safer bet in that respect. Moreover the program at Urbana is extremely new and completely coursework based. It's a non-thesis program, and I was pretty sure I will only go programs that would provide the opportunity to conduct some amount of research.
