UNC Chapel Hill and UCSB as a safe? May I have some of what you're smoking? Rolling Eyes Laughing

The first rule is for applicants to not do any self-categorization, so please edit all the posts where you've done that. It's highly misleading for other people who won't know any better.

GATech - ambi-mod
UW-Madison - ambi
UCLA - ambi-mod
Columbia - ambi-mod
Cornell - ambi-mod
UCSD - mod-ambi
UMCP - ambi
UPenn - ambi-mod
Purdue - ambi
USC - safe-mod
UMass-Amherst - ambi
UVirginia - ambi
NYU - ambi-mod
UC-Irvine - mod
Northwestern - ambi
TAMU - ambi
UNC-Chapel hill - ambi, recommend drop
UC-Santa Barbara - ambi-mod
UC-Davis - mod
Stony Brook - ambi-mod
NCSU - mod
SUNY Buffalo - mod

You have a single safe school in the above list. Go through the other threads here on Edulix, as well as the UniSuggest and UniSearch systems, and come up with a better list after you go through university websites and think about which programs you really want to apply to. A suggested breakdown is 2-3 safe schools, 3 moderates and 3-4 ambi schools. Be sure you only include those schools whose programs and research you really like and would like to be a part of. For your initial list, it's okay to have about 15 or so schools in your initial list, and we'll help you trim that number down. But we do need you to put in the legwork on your own, and don't expect to handed stuff on a silver platter here on Edulix. Looking through univ websites to ascertain which schools' programs you like, is your job. Ask for help if you need it, but not for spoon-feeding.


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. Also, before requesting for profile evaluations, please go through this excellent post.

2) Please take some time out to read these three threads 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.

I love to read, and then I regurgitate. I write - a lot - as my posts here and on other outlets would show. I do not make apologies for what I write (and how long it is). I do not sugarcoat things either. I don't tolerate vague questions, for any reasons - ignorance arising out of an inability to locate information when the necessary tools to do so (i.e. the internet, libraries, university websites, other forums/bulletin boards, etc.) are readily available, is not any kind of an acceptable excuse.

I had already updated my list without categorization in the first post. Sorry that you picked up an older list from the unupdated post from the time when I had not done my research. Now I've updated all the posts. Smile

This is the new one. I'll be grateful if you can help me with this one.

Columbia
Purdue
UCLA
UCSD
University of Virginia (Charlottesville)
UC-Irvine

Your "new" list is just a subset of the original one. You want to roll with so many mod and ambi schools? You had one safe in the original list (USC), and now you don't even have that. Sure you want to play that risky game?
