Curious if people have opinions on this. I mean, it's nice to be invited to something rather than a flat rejection, but I don't really plan on paying for the degree out of pocket. I think if I was offered funded I probably would.
But as far as the MS program itself goes, what do you think of it? Is it one of the typical "cash cow" programs? It seems like they extend the MS offer to many of the PhD rejects, so it kinda leads me to think rather cynically that this is a way for them to pump in some cash for the school..

I imagine it is a solid program from an applied perspective, like for people in industry looking to further their education and applicable skills. But I'm curious about its potential as a segue to doctoral studies. Obviously, you can try to transfer into the UW PhD from the UW MS, but what about other schools?
