Quote:- It seems my list is heavy on the ambitious side. I will apply to 4-5 ambitious universities. As I want to pursue a job in Machine Learning domain after doing my MS, what all ambitious universities should I target or trim out?

You should look at the coursework offered and/or research being conducted at each school on your list, and then see which ones you like the most. Pick 4-5 of them. That's how you build your list, not on the basis of XYZ university vs. ABC university i.e. on the basis of their names alone.

- In some universities thesis is compulsory but in some, we have an option for the project. What will be beneficial keeping in mind the job prospects?

Honestly speaking, for most roles in most industries and companies, while research experience is good to have, unless the role you're applying for is a research-heavy role, having done good projects/applied work is more preferable than just a thesis. Note, that I am in no way understating the importance or applicability of a thesis-based MS, but all I'm saying is that most companies would rather have someone who has immediately transferable skills if possible. So, for your field,
unless you're thinking of going in for a Ph.D. at some point down the line, I'd, personally, probably recommend an MS with a project instead of one with a thesis.


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.

RE: Fall 2018 | MS | CS | G.R.E 327 (Q-170/V-157) | GPA 7.8 | TOEFL 111

Though I have researched a lot about university course offerings and research areas in Machine Learning/Data Science/Deep Learning leading to these shortlisted universities, there can be some universities which I might have missed in the Ambitious, Moderate and Safe category. Can anybody suggest other universities for MS in CS with the above specialization?

And please if you could classify them in subcategories (mod-ambi,safe-mod etc.) as well, it would give me a better idea.
Thanks a lot

As a general place to get you started: Duke, Wisconsin and Vanderbilt as ambitious ones, and IUB, GWU and GMU as safes. I am not sure how good their research and course offerings are in your field of interest, so do that background research on your own.

Thank you . I just need one help.Could you classify them in subcategories (like ambi,mod-ambi,mod, safe-mod,safe etc. and not just ambi,mod,safe) as well, it would give me a better idea.
