Hi all..i am really confused with these three admits...first thing is about UMCP...i have heard that there are some placement issues in UMCP...also people take transfers from MIM course in second year....is this true??

second thing is b/w GSU & UTD :

I have heard that Atlanta is a good city & GRA's are good in GSU.....
but on the other hand there are less job opportunities.....is this true??


where in Dallas u have got plenty of job opportunities but less funding...but again when i see IS ranking, GSU stands 10th....i am in real dilemma here friends....


I am a fresher...what would you suggest me friends?? should I go for GSU considering its ranking?? or should i consider UTD as it has good placement history...


I am eagerly waiting for your reply..thnx a lot in advance Smile

If cost is not your major concern, I suggest you to pick GSU because it has a good course structure, good location, GA opportunities and pretty good reputation.

GSU it is. I guess the overall costs will not vary substantially among the three.

@mainframe: Getting internships and job depends on your efforts.
I have friends passed out from all the three universities.

4 of them from UMCP. All of them have landed up a job but purely through their own efforts.

Sagar Mehta who posted on edulix as a Student ambassador from UTD, I know him well. He has also landed up a job, but again through his own efforts.

Also, there is a friend's friend in GSU, who have secured a GA and having a free ride as of now. She is also putting her own efforts to find internship.

So I would suggest you to go for a course which you are interested in and which you think can add value to your profile. Since you are a fresher, I personally think that GSU is the choice for you.

hi mmar Smile thnk you very much Smile
hi kunal537 Smile

Thank you very much for your reply Smile

As told by you GSU seems good option for me since the course is quite suitable for me....but this job thing scares the hell out of meSad.....so sometimes i feel like if there are plenty of opportunities in Dallas, i should go for Dallas......


Also Kunal537 why did u suggest me GSU since i am a fresher? i mean what benefits can i get in GSU?


also everybody on Edulix keeps saying that there are less opportunities in Atlanta...is this true?

I hope you will reply to my queries Smile
thnx a tons in advance Smile

@mainframe: The reason I'm suggesting you take up GSU out of the three options is the courses that are offered at GSU. You being a fresher, different specializations that are offered at GSU will help you to choose a path of your interest.

Apart from that, a couple of my close pals were at UMCP and their take on UMCP is "Apart from the reputation that UMCP has, there is not much that MIM at UMCP has to offer." They weren't really satisfied with the course.

Now you must be thinking, why I am stressing so much on course. That is because, being a fresher, you have to explore the program as much as you can. The more options you have, the better opportunties you can create for yourself.

That being said, don't just blindly follow my suggestions. Take a look at the following thread: http://www.edulix.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=75603 , come out with your own version and you will surely find your fit.

Well for that, mmar has already told you to get in touch with dhanesh gooner.. He might be a better person to give you updates on internships and placements.

Thanks guys for the mention. Well mainframe, you need to understand that it is difficult to be objective about placements in any university let alone GSU. I feel you need to put in more effort to understand what you desire out of the course.

Go through the links of concentrations and courses and decide. If you are going just on the basis of reputation then GSU is undoubtedly better than utd or umcp.

Another thing is what kind of profile are you looking for? Be more specific with your queries and expectations. Let me know, i might have answers for you.

The above link directs you to the Indian Student Association for GSU.
Cheers

Hi Dhanesh_Gooner,

I have admits for Spring 2015 from UT Dallas, UMBC, NEU but its the seattle campus and this is the first batch of MS IS. During a webinar by the university yesterday they mentioned some of the courses taught at NEU Seattle will be classroom sessions and some of it by virtual learning, maybe video conferencing.

What are the total expenses incurred at UTD for MS ITM?, living expenses in particular. Also, is the course ITM recognized outside texas?, because I read somewhere that it is different from MIS.

In particular,I am confused with UTD and NEU

Please help me choose the best one based on:

1) Getting Co-op and eventual jobs
2) Fees + living expenditure
3) Course

Thanks
