Bachelor's versus joint BS/MS

Postby tauneutrino » Sat Aug 05, 2017 12:50 pm

Is it possible to discern to what extent the choice between requesting funding for a bachelor's degree or a joint BS/MS program affects chances of acceptance? Will it likely vary between fields, such as nuclear and civil engineering, for instance? And lastly, is it recommended against for incoming first year applicants to try to request funding for the joint BS/MS option, especially if they are not admitted to that program as of yet? I see on the application that there is an option to specify whether the applicant is enrolled in the joint program at their current institution, but I wasn't sure if this was a strong deterrent for hiring. I would eventually like to pursue a MS degree in my field, however I am certainly willing to delay that until after fulfilling the work obligation to SMART if it entails a significantly elevated chance of being accepted in the first place.

Thank you for your time.
