刚打完乒乓球回来就看到这封拒信,突然有些感慨。

上次还跟男神版主聊天,说起今年的EE转CS竞争惨烈。作为一个数据结构都没上过的人,当初我就决定全申EE,不当CS码农。决心拿下EE PhD,去公司R&D

半年前,在USC科研期间,发了定位贴,躺在公寓里辗转反侧思索自己应该主申MS还是PhD,问题归结到“我适不适合research”

于是从自己童年开始回忆,试图找出些线索。

期间周末的某一天,连着几个小时,把斯坦福博士生Philip Guo的<The PhD Grind>读完了,深刻领会了PhD毕业的艰难,最后还是下了个决定——主申PhD

在专排top 30中申了20+所学校,其中一大半是PhD,还有一小部分MS/MEng(当时想着USC MS作为退路,毕竟有暑期经历)

Hqfrank 学长详细分析了我的优势劣势,优势就是三维高,另有USC和IBM的实习和推荐信,劣势就是出身和paper水

最后文书只用了一套,research-oriented

出结果之前,我一直都预感申了那么多PhD,应该会中几所吧,倒是觉得S不会要我MS

结果正好相反

PhD到目前为止接到的大多是rej,到现在没消息的应该也都waitlist了吧,反而是S拯救了我

This is fate. 现在反而更倾向于转CS当码农了

给以后的申请人一些经验吧:

1.如果出身普通211,而且科研经历和paper不太给力的话,不论三维再好,也要慎重申top 30 PhD,因为教授更喜欢一过去就能上手干活的人

2.想混申MS PhD不用担心,并不麻烦。文书都可以把自己写成科研粉。然而MEng不通用,要侧重professional
