Usc vs Neu vs Asu - MS in CS general
0
0
I have admits from University of Southern California, Northeastern University and Arizona State University for MS in CS general.

Usc is very reputed and highly ranked and have a great location advantage. But, It is very costly and class size is huge.

Neu have a nice co-op program, it is not very cheap but coop covers the second year's fees. But it is not highly ranked and has climbed in rankings few years back. Boston is good for jobs but no way near to California.

Asu is cheap. Good chances of getting assistantship. Not to great for jobs and internship.


My main objective is to get a good job. I am not interested in pursuing PHD.

Also,I am primarily dependent on education loan.

Which will be the best bet among these?

For doctoral programs, yes. For MS programs, employers don't really care about rankings in most cases, and in any case, graduating with an MS from USC isn't comparable to graduating from CMU/UC Berkeley/MIT/Stanford, so I personally don't see the point of spending all that money on USC. I can make the same argument for NEU. So, with both those things in mind, I'd probably lean towards ASU.

P.S. You should go through the links I've inserted in point #2 below, which are in red.

1) Please mention as many details as possible about your academics, research and work-ex, in terms of projects worked on, technologies used, roles/responsibilities handled, papers published/presented, awards/honors obtained, etc. All those have to be put in the misc details section of your UniSearch profile if you expect any help on Edulix.

2) Please take some time out to read this and this thread in their entirety. PLEASE do that before asking questions about universities from a comparison perspective, or jobs, or coursework, or H-1B visas, or "placements", irrespective of which univ/department/program/major you're applying to.
