  1. Hello. I am also an international student and this is news to me. Did the school tell you what the fees are for?
  2. Has anyone done an interview w/ penn state? i'm trying to get info on the process. who were ur interviewers? what were the questions?, etc.
  3. First of all, congrats on Cornell! I have a question about ur referees. Do u know if they're well known in their fields and what kind of relationship do u have w them? I got into UChicago but my credentials aren't as good as yours by a wide margin I think. The fact that I got a pretty good referee who's a UChiago alumnus might have done it for me I think.
  4. Try checking Chicago's portal if ur applying. Just got my acceptance.
  5. Does anyone know if chicago is done sending out acceptance offers? Checked the results page and it looks like the pattern is u get accepted at the end of Dec and that's about it. of course not all of them will report there.
  6. Might be too late for this but I'm aapplying to physical chem PhD this cycle and I think you might have aimed too low for 30ish. My GPA is 3.6, verbal GRE is 163. Did 1.5 years research in organic chemistry and 0.5 year in computational physics. Just got into UT Austin and Carnegie Mellon. UT Austin is ~15 for physical chemistry and ~15 overall in chem. Carnegie Mellon is ~40 overall in chem. Your stats look better than mine, so yeah, I have a feeling you aimed too low.
  7. Lol I don't intend to have fun during Christmas.
  8. Undergrad Institution: Big state school - Houston - guess which Major(s): Chemistry and PhysicsMinor(s): MathGPA in Major: 3.6 in bothOverall GPA: 3.6Position in Class: N/A (school doesn't calculate that so who knows. Got invited to Golden Key on campus so probably above 15%?)Type of Student: International/femaleGRE Scores (revised/old version):Q: 163V: 157W: 4.0S: N/AResearch Experience: 1.5 years in organic with PI from Pharmacy, paper in waiting (2nd author), 1 research poster. An REU in theoretical biological physics at Rice, 2 poster sessions (1st author). 2 oral presentations - regional conferences. Half a semester at Rice doing simulations. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: (Within your school or outside?) Within school: research scholarship + research travel grant. Outside: stipend to participate in REU. Pertinent Activities or Jobs: 2 years of tutoring (20 hrs/week at a tutoring office on campus) in math, chemistry and physics. Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help: Special Bonus Points: 2 recommenders are from research and the last one is a very famous theoretical chemist who I took a grad. course with. Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: Applying to Where: All Theoretical/Physical/Computational Chemistry UT Austin, Rice, Washington, Chicago, Northeastern, Toronto, Waterloo, Penn State, Carnegie Mellon Got acceptance offer from UT Austin already. Does anyone have experience with UT? They invited me on a weekend for grad students, I hear it's an informal interview but not sure. Recently rejected by Toronto - they ask for A- overall, which translates to 80 - 83% in Canada, which equals to B/B+ in the U.S.... soo....
