Is a PhD for Computer Science at WashU in St Louis a valuable offer. How strong is my application?
I received a PhD offer at WashU in St Louis after my REU advisor recommended me and gave me an accelerated application. I am thinking about going to industry for a few years as I also have a job offer (Amazon). Is this PhD offer something I could attain again, could I go higher, or would I only get into worse schools upon reparation in a few years. I have a 3.43 GPA from a reputable LAC, 3.55 in CS, and an REU under my belt. As well as a 2nd Place award for a large research poster presentation competition at WashU, and some other research experience and TAing. How strong would this application be down the line.3 replies
