Which grad schools are a good fit for my stats (MS in CS)?
Hi, I'm a class of 2017 grad from UIUC's CS program. What type of schools would be a good fit for a MS in CS or Math or Stats?
- Internship at one of [Google, Apple, Facebook]
- Full-time job in algorithmic trading starting soon at one of [Citadel, Jump Trading, Optiver]
- 3 years of research done within U of I in the CS department, and at the NCSA (National Center for Supercomputing Applications) in HPC.
I have one strong letter of rec I can get from a UIUC CS professor, and I could get more from my other research positions at school, but none that I feel were that great. What tier of schools should I be applying to for my MS? Open to and interested in CS, Applied Math, or Stats. May be able to join the professor I was doing research with at UIUC as a MS student in CS.
Really quite interested in programming languages and compilers as a research topic - something U of I is very strong in. My strong letter of rec is from a UIUC compilers research professor.
