  • Debashish

    Hi HSB,

    I’ve got an admit from McGill University, Canada for pursuing masters in Computer Science for the Fall 2011 session. I’ve also got acceptance from University of Florida in the US. UF is also offering me 50% tuition scholarship for its MS program in CS, while McGill is offering me a TA position which will account for my 2nd year expenses. Could anyone please suggest which University would be a better choice for Computer Science Masters?

    Thank you.

      • Debashish

        Hey pradeepkumar,

        I feel McGill may be slightly better than U of Florida for Masters in Computer Science. But, it’s debatable, since both offer different kind of opportunities and are located in different countries.

        Hey NAVJOT,

        My GRE score was 1440(Q:800, V:640). I completed my BTech from West Bengal University of Technology .
