  1. I know the ranks aren't everything, but it's just my bits of greed to have a degree from a well-known presitigious engineering grad schools. However, how much does the name affect your job prospects in large chem. Engineering companies?
  2. Hi, I am a junior in US college, and I major in chemical engineering and minor in Spanish. My current GPA is 3.55. I am seriously considering to pursue masters in US, and I would like to ask several questions. 1) Can I pursue masters in discipline that isn't necessarily chem. E, but related somehow? I.E. chemistry, biomedical engineering, etc. 2) Does being a foreign student affect my chance of acceptances as much as it does for undergrad? 3) How do people pay for masters? My family isn't really rich.
  3. People have said that masters in science/engineering is harder than bachelors in engineering, but how difficult is it? are there more essays to write? Or labs? more field work? Stricter grading policies?
  4. I have done some researches about which schools offers good chem. E grad programs, so I won't ask that questions. However, which schools would you NOT recommend? Also, is this list reliable? http://www.university-list.net/us/rank/univ-1039.htm

  6. Thank you!
  7. Hi, I am a senior in US college and studying chemical engineering with spanish minor. Is this forum a right place to ask questions regarding the graduate schools and their various programs?
