Arizona State UniversityAdmit
#Admit 3 No. You dont need to accept their offer. They directly want to send you the i20 xD. Anyway, the only MOD univ in my list and I get it. Yay! Applied for MS. Date Applied: 1st Jan 2016 Result Obtained: 01 April 2016 . 9 month i20 = $48,000 appx.
Carnegie Mellon UniversityAdmit
#Admit 1 First Admit! Yaaay! :) Date Applied: 5th Jan 2016 Result Obtained: 10th Feb 2016 MS(Coursework) Wow. That was fast. Finally, relieved. Although,too expensive :( $63,975/yr(includes everything) :( Tuition fee : $42,000
Cornell UniversityAdmit
#Admit 2 Got into M.Eng. Applied for MS. They asked for a second choice in the form itself. Obviously M.Eng, it was. 5 people in my group got Cornell M.Eng. Not even a single reject. $73,000 for 9 months M.Eng degree. No, Thanks! Some of my peers even got an email saying that they will get a 2 week trip to Honduras to see the Aguaclara program. Too costly! CMU seems like a much much better option. Got a small email congratulating and the whole decision letter on the portal. Decision Date : 9 March. Application Date was either 10 Dec or 15 Dec.
University of Illinois Urbana-ChampaignAdmit
#Admit 4(DREAM ADMIT) Applied around 10 or 15 Jan 2016. Result Obtained : 13 April 2016 MS (Non Thesis) Received mail from Dept. It says that admit yet to be confirmed by the college. Should receive the decision from them soon. Apparently, converting MS non thesis to thesis is way more easy at UIUC than CMU/Cornell.
