People with 0 admits so far, what are your backup plans? Got 3 rejects so far and 0 admits so panicking about it.

John Doe: Might look at Australian/Canadian Universities. But really depends on what you expect out of your graduate education.

Aangel Jace J: Looking only at US though @ChaKu42 :)

yakub khan: You have a strong profile be patient you will get in

on 27 Feb, 2019 at 7:14 PM

John Doe: Also, good luck and hang in there :)

on 27 Feb, 2019 at 7:14 PM

Aangel Jace J: Thank you @ChaKu42 and @yakubk. Just got the 3rd rejection today and have no clue what to do next

on 27 Feb, 2019 at 7:15 PM

John Doe: Just a side note - take a look at 'Recurse Center'. It's a programming retreat (sort of but much more than a coding bootcamp). I plan to apply to that if I don't get any admits

on 27 Feb, 2019 at 7:17 PM

Probuddho Chakraborty: @aangeljas I think that since your 2/3 rejects are from UFL and NCSU, the plan of action should be apply to NEU. Do it asap since they have have 2 admit batches rolled out. Best of Luck. We are waiting for a good news soon from you, girl. Power to you! :)

Aangel Jace J: Hahaha thank you @ProBengali.
Do you suppose it's a risk to try neu considering they've rolled out admits? Like I'm thinking of the safest of safest bets

Sarika Tandon: @john does. What's recurse center

on 27 Feb, 2019 at 7:52 PM

Aangel Jace J: Yes what exactly is a Recurse Center ???? was going to ask about it

on 27 Feb, 2019 at 8:16 PM

vaishak qqqqq: Expected because you're from biotech. You had a better chance if you were from EC atleast.
You might have to take a lot of pre requisite courses also.
Anyway all the best!!

Aangel Jace J: @vaishakhgd0411 I chose CS understanding I need to do prerequisites. Can't strictly say it's just that cos ppl from chem, mech etc have got in (though it is a factor). Hoping to come up with backup plans

on 27 Feb, 2019 at 10:36 PM

Vivek Reddy: Try Syracuse, UNC Charolette, UT Arlington or IIT Chicago as back up options

on 27 Feb, 2019 at 10:44 PM

Vivek Reddy: UNCC seems risky as I have seen a big wave of rejects recently

on 27 Feb, 2019 at 10:45 PM

Akhil Cherukuri: You have a strong profile, but as you are coming to CS from biotech undergrad, many unis see this as a critical point and they would need a very clear explanation in your sop for your decision. You should have also applied to safe unis too.

on 27 Feb, 2019 at 10:46 PM

John Doe: @aangeljas here you go https://www.recurse.com/apply

on 27 Feb, 2019 at 10:46 PM

Shubham Pokharkar: @aangeljas apply to Stevens. You might even get a scholarship. They have no application fees and they don't require official scores too. So at least you will have one admit in your hand as they are pretty quick in giving decisions. All the best ????

on 04 Mar, 2019 at 8:19 AM

Ankur Sethi: Software engineering from sjsu is also a good option. Getting anxious, I also applied for it this week only. But you will have to move fast, considering the WES requirement

on 04 Mar, 2019 at 8:28 AM

Sarika Tandon: Try syracuse

on 04 Mar, 2019 at 9:07 AM

Sarika Tandon: Well but keep your calm ,Aim is not to go to any u.s univ .

on 04 Mar, 2019 at 11:17 AM

Sai Bhaskar: Try SUNY buffalo

on 12 Mar, 2019 at 9:18 AM

Sai Bhaskar: I think it's available with Yocket fast-track,so you get the result within 15 days

on 12 Mar, 2019 at 9:24 AM

Dhruv Apte: I got 8 rejects before an admit. As a backup, I had already started contacting professors at IIT and NITs which had overlapping research interests as mine for a research assistant. You can try that, though I would suggest to wait for all the decisions before doing that.

on 12 Mar, 2019 at 3:45 PM

Rohit Rai: You have a stellar profile. The only reason I can think of, for you to not land an admit, is the switch from biotech to CS. Universities are strict about the transition from other fields to CS. You can look into information technology or information systems program which are close to CS and the universities are also not as strict about the transition from other courses. You can easily get into them.

Aangel Jace J: @WolverXNA I could see the emojis in the notifications but not in the thread. Thank u :)

on 15 Mar, 2019 at 2:34 PM

chaitanya mulye: I have 4 rejections on the trot...Yet I am confident I will get an admit...!!!!

on 15 Mar, 2019 at 3:00 PM

Rajasekaran S: So far 1 reject from CMU, keeping my fingers crossed, tension mounting day by day. Luckily no rejects from other universities except CMU

on 15 Mar, 2019 at 11:13 PM

Rajasekaran S: UT Arlington is a safe bet, also they have a rolling admission, it's okay university when compared to other universities

on 15 Mar, 2019 at 11:17 PM

Vaibhav Mohan Sahay: @aangeljas congrats. Vanderbilt is expensive af though.

on 15 Mar, 2019 at 11:35 PM

Aangel Jace J: Thank you everyone :) yes you guys are right in keeping up the faith!!
@Vaibhavv lol yes but that's a positive admit and it's manageable if all else fail me. Surely hoping for some more positive news
