GPA 3.55 chem. engineer. International

2 posts in this topic


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.

1. Definitely.

2. Not as much as undergrad, but it still affects your chance.

3. Merit-based scholarships or on-campus jobs like TA or RA.
