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.|

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.
