  1. Hello everyone. I'm an undergraduate student (third year) and I know these software/language are very famous and powerful. If you check the web, you see lots of articles in which they compare them but, they're confusing. Each of these has advantages over the others. And there's no much about these software applied to chemistry, which is my main interest. So I come here to ask you guys if you use any of these software and what for. Also, if you have tried more than one of them, which one would you consider the most useful in chemistry? I'm very interested in multivariable analysis, machine learning, manipulating spectra (second derivatives, vector normalization,...). Thank you in advance.
  2. I'm from Costa Rica. I would like to have that list
  3. Hello. I'm trying to see if I can get research experience somewhere in the world. Does anyone here know about a website where I can find paid internship opportunities for students from any country? I have already checked the ACS' website but most of them, if not all, are for US students. Thank you in advance.
  4. Hello everyone. I am an international student who wishes to apply to graduate chemistry programs in the US but, I'm not sure which ones or which level, MS or PhD. I know that in sciences it is uncommon to get a Master's before a PhD but, in my case, I believe it is important (correct me if I'm wrong, that's exactly why I'm here). I believe I should get a Master's, because PhD programs' requirements are very high in many cases. To be accepted to a PhD I should demonstrate a very high English level, since I'm not a native speaker. Plus, I would be required to take the GRE (and of course do well in it). Taking the GRE is a problem since I'm not studying chemistry in English, and the test will evaluate my knowledge of chemistry in English. So it will represent a tougher challenge that usual. I want to get a Master's first so I can learn a lot of chem in English (to do well in a GRE) and I feel I'd be more prepared as I would already know what it is like to be a graduate student, and I would get more research experience. I have read (never seen) of programs that combine the Master's and PhD. So your first get a Master's and then you continue with your PhD in the same university. Does anyone know about good universities in the US that offer this kind of programs? Would you recommend it (why/why not)? I think this kind of programs sound interesting as, if accepted, I would not need to worry about applying to a PhD later. Thank you in advance, I appreciate any comment and suggestions in regards to my situation.
