I recently got into AWS and going for Google soon. However, I am more inclined towards Ph.D (after few years of work experience).
Any tips on getting into Ivy league for Computer Science Ph.D?
Which Ivy league would be easiest to get into? I am confident I can score 330+ in GRE and get good recommendation letters. My GPA is good but I don't have a stellar university either for BS or MS or prior research experience.
How should I prepare to get into Ivy league for Ph.D? I am ready to undertake multi-year effort to build my profile to get into some Ivy for Ph.D
Edit 1: self-driving ML (took a course related to this in UG)
Distributed systems (did assistant-ship in Master's).
Interested in these 2 fields.
However, more inclined towards ML.
Reason is not just salary - not happy with climbing the corporate ladder. I think I will be happy in academics even with lesser pay.
If you're older or have a family, you'll likely produce fewer papers for your advisor. As a result, you'll have a harder time gaining admission. Do the PhD sooner, rather than later.
