I'm currently pursuing a 5 year integrated MSc. course in Theoretical CS in India. In my search online, a little under half of the 'top' universities in the US explicitly state that they won't take students who already have a Masters degree in CS or related fields into their Master's program. But my degree is structured in such a way that we have only 4 years of course work and two 6-month internships/research interns. ( like a Bachelors degree + 1 yr of work experience )
- Will my degree make me inelligible for those programs even though my course is just a glorified undergraduate degree?
- If I apply to the universities which don't have that rule (explicitly stated on their website) will I stand a chance for admission or is it also highly unlikely?
