Got into 3 prestigious master’s programs for cs, cs, and data science.

My instinct is to go for the better cs one but every single Mormon acquaintance is telling me data science is the future and shit like that. It is mostly a meme, right? What program would you choose if you were me? Ivy league cs, Top 5 cs(better), Ivy League data science.

>inb4 they’re all memes

go for Ivy League CS, Data Science IS where the money is and is the future but doing a masters in Data Science is a meme because you basically learn the key consepts in CS anyway. Further note: When Data Science becomes fully automated, you'll need that CS masters to still have a job

If academia floats your boat, I'd go with the CS
If you want to work in industry, I'd go with the data science

Hmm, you’re probably right. Most employers will see the Ivy League name and equate it to more quality than what they would with the other degree

Talking to Mormons is your first and greatest mistake

Wasting your education, let alone an Ivy League education on computer science is pretty fucking stupid
You studied amongst labs that decoded the human genome and split the atom and decided instead to write better indexes for e-commerce and ad companies to sell clickbait and toilet paper

cs -> datascience so there's no point of doing pure datascience.
