  1. My ranked priorities when considering multiple offers: 1. Research: I looked into the types of research going on at each institution. I tried to find at least three faculty members that I would genuinely be interested in working with, but also who are actively publishing. 2. Location: I am more of a city or beach person and I go out a lot so that factored into my choice. 3. Stipend: if the stipend matches the cost of living in that particular location. 4. General vibe: I would highly recommend visiting the school to learn more about the program and the department. But, if
  2. I emailed them again today to confirm because I was freaking out and they got back to me fairly quickly. Turns out the online student fees calculator was completely off. The student fees for international students, at least at the school I committed to, are about $2000 a year, including summer. It's totally affordable compared to the stipend so that's great news for me, specially since I was so worried yesterday. Thanks for the fast response y'all!
  3. Hi, I just have one question concerning chemistry graduate school. I always thought chemistry graduate school was free with a generous stipend, but even though the tuition has been waived, I still have to pay student fees. As an international student, the non-resident student fee is actually more than the cost of tuition. Although the stipend covers the student fees, I am left with only a couple hundred bucks every semester. As a result, I will have to pay out of pocket for personal expenses, food etc, which over the course of a year will be a major investment. Anyone else in chemistry gradua

  5. Does anyone know if upon accepting the offer of admission, grad school reimburses you the money you spent with ETS (on the GREs and to have your scores sent to the school)?? Can you ask for a reimbursement or is it considered in a bad light?
  6. Now that the majority of decisions have gone out already, anyone who is seriously considering attending UF for a PhD in Chemistry starting next fall? What are your research interests? Any PI that you are looking forward to work with? Did any PI reach out to you? What other schools did you get into and why are you picking UF over these schools? Are you planning on visiting UF in the near future? Feel free to talk about any other UF related topic and to throw in any other questions or thoughts that you might have!
  7. Maybe I aimed way too high even though according to my professors and friends, I didn't. My GRE scores are decent, but my GPA, letters of recommendation as well as research and work experiences should very well make up for them. I got my 10th rejection this week and I am quite disappointed by the overall turn out. Still waiting on my first acceptance, but it is getting pretty late in the game and I'm starting to lose faith. Anyone who applied for ochem heard anything from NYU, UF (Gainesville) and BC? These were supposedly my safety choices back in December, but right now they're my only
