  1. Hi all, I know it's early but I am starting this thread so that anyone who is applying to the 2021 application season can their credentials or news of offers once they are sent out! Feel free to share anything related to your grad school goals!
  2. Hello people! I am a 2018 ChemE grad from Nigeria and I'm applying to ChemE PhD programs in the US. I graduated from a top 5 Nigerian institution where I completed senior research and design projects. I was wondering if these would be sufficient research experience for PhD programs given that American and Asian students have more research experiences. My stats are: GPA--4.82/5(roughly a 3.87/4) GRE-- 160Q, 162V, 4.5 My research interests include-- fuel/PV cells, electrochemistry and batteries, CO2 conversion, and air pollution Other info-- I have LORs from my research Super
  3. Graduated 2017 with BSc in Chemical Engineering 3.0 GPA from a 3rd world country. No relevant work experience, Taught in a local college class 11 & 12 for two years, IELTS 7 GRE 322 (Q-169,V-153, AWA-3.0) One design project and 15 day hands on training with some 1/2 day training workshops. Very good with MATLAB and other computational works. Should I Apply to graduate school? Could you suggest me some professors or universities?
  4. I'm looking to apply to top 10 MSc ChemE programs and at the least top 20. My GPA is 3.90/4.00 in Chemical Engineering at RPI. I have one industry research paper and one pending research paper at school. I have one summer of research completed and one spring of industry experience in RnD at Corning Incorporated. I also plan to do research this fall semester during applications. I took practice tests for the GRE and I'm getting roughly 165 Q and 155 V most times with a few higher scores in Q. Considering my strong interest in biotechnology, what are some schools that I should
  5. I have got master of science offer in chemical engineering program of Cornell University and UCLA. I intend to get PhD, most likely staying in the same school. Any good recommendation?
  6. I am a chemical engineering undergraduate from India. I have had a hard time deciding between these admits due to different variables. I want to pursue a Masters with Thesis option which involves research work along with reduced coursework. I have a few offers left to accept and some I have made. It would help me greatly if you can give your advice regarding this as it is a big decision in my career. I have received admits from the following universities: University of Waterloo- Perfect Research Match, Almost full scholarship which will cover almost my entire expenses ( Tu
  7. Does anyone have a story or experience or opinion about the American University of Sharjah (AUS)? I'm thinking about applying Master in Chemical Eng and get funded by Teaching / Research Assistantship in AUS but I have no idea about this campus.
  8. I am an International student from India and have applied for the Ph.D. program in Chemical Engineering with a focus in drug delivery, nanomedicine and tissue engineering at MIT, University of Michigan, UPenn, UIUC, Cornell, JHU, UCLA. I have also applied for the Ph.D. program in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University and Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Wisconsin Madison. However, I have not heard back from any of the schools although many students have already received their admits. I am surprised that I have not received admit from any of the schools. Can anyone ple
  9. Hi everyone. I'm planning to apply for a PhD in Chemical Engineering for a Spring term intake. Therefore, I contacted via e-mail some US universities that accept Spring admissions (I checked it on their websites). However, most of those universities said that "very few students are admitted for Spring", "we admit for Spring only if there are available spots" or "if a professor requests a Spring admission for a certain student, we can consider it". Based on all these answers, I understand that most of those universities does not have a cohort for Spring admitted students, but can
  10. I would like some advice from current grad students in the chemistry field who got a BS in chemical engineering; I am currently getting a dual degree BS in chemistry and engineering. I have to transfer to another school to get the engineering part of my degree and I think it will be about 2.5-3 years at that school. I am already in my third year at my current school, so that would be six years total from the start because I would start on my engineering degree in Fall 2019. Because it is a dual degree, there are four classes that most chemistry majors must take that I am not required to t
  11. I'm applying to grad schools next year and I'm going to be the first in my family to pursue a PhD so this is honestly kind of nerve wracking. The reason why I am posting here is because I have good academics but mediocre research and recs. Here's my stats: Major: ChemE (top 4 of ~25 students) GPA: 4.1/4.3 Rank: Top ~12 out of ~240 students GRE: 167V/170Q/4.5W Research No peer-reviewed publications in refereed journals. Freshman year research published in school journal Sophomore year research in new lab wasn't very good or pro
  12. I'm a fourth year ChemE student at an engineering college in India. I've applied to pursue M.S in ChemE in the US and received admits from Cornell, UMich, CMU and Northwestern. All this while, I was dead sure I was going to go to UMich, simply because I felt it was a really selective program and I loved the fact that you could do interdisciplinary projects that were funded by industrial partners. A couple of weeks later, I heard from Cornell University, which was initially the place I really wanted to go because of the research, before applying for the unis. UMich was quite an ambitious c
  13. Does anybody know which schools have already sent their acceptances?
  14. Can someone elaborate the specifics of the MS Chemical Engineering course offered in UC Berkeley University? (like duration of the course, objectives etc.)
  15. Hello all! Negotiating offers for a PhD in Chemical Engineering between Amherst, Georgia Tech, Cornell, Michigan, and UT Austin. Cornell's offer has proven to be most financially competitive, yet all are within the same stipend ball park. Interested in biological research, primarily regarding cellular engineering. Little bit about me: first gen college student, female, first gen US citizen (originally from Moscow, Russia), currently at Northeastern University and completed my elementary through high school education in NJ. Also, I'm a total work horse and pre
  16. I want to be reviewed my SOP by others to find out your views & comments. If interested, please message me your email id so that I can send you my draft for review. TIA
  17. Hello all, first post! I am currently refining my list of schools to which I would like to apply for a PhD in Chemical Engineering. I believe I am a fairly strong contender, so I was wondering which schools offered top competitive programs in the field of computational catalysis. I have conducted extensive experimental research in the field of heterogeneous catalysis, but I would like to branch out more into the theoretical and computational side if possible. Please, let me know your thoughts! Thank you
  18. Hi buddies I'm a bachelor of chemical eng. and really really like to continue in the fields including space eng., astrophysics or cosmology... Anyone Anyone can help me and have any advice? please...I'll be grateful if anyone suggest even as a sentence. Thank you
  19. I know grad schools usually need three recommendation letters, and I think I have a good three from my department lined up (I haven't asked yet though!). However, I could also add a 4th one, as the professor offered to write me one (more as a character reference though, and not really speaking to academics/research) - is that okay and not overkill? Some more info: the 4th recommender is outside of my university (and outside of my field), but he is a fairly recent Nobel Laureate and is a well-respected researcher in his field! Thanks very much!
  20. Hi guys, I am an international student and taking Master's program in Chemical Engineering in the USA. I was lucky, got a scholarship from the US govt and My Univ. My school ranking is between 100-125 based on usnews.com. I had done 2 semesters while having a terrible health issue. I got one B for Fossil Fuel and Renewable Energy, one B- for Heat Transfer and three C for other courses. The problem is with 3 grades below B- usually, there might be a termination. I am so scary now. For the worst case scenario, I plan to apply to other universities and maybe transfer my credits. I will have only

  22. Hi, I just finished my junior year at a mid-tier school in the US, and I am beginning to look into chemical-materials engineering PhD programs. I'm at a bit of a loss as to what type of schools I should apply to. For reference, here are my stats: GPA: 3.96/4 Research Experience: 2.5 years by the time I am finished with my undergrad Publications: A couple in the works right now, likely to have one published and another one (first author) being submitted by the time I start applying GRE: Haven't taken yet, studying for it right now LoR: Can likely get three good one
  23. Hi there, Has anyone been accepted to any school? It looks like Stanford starts sending out acceptance emails today, and I get so antsy. Not sure if they send out all the emails today, or they will continuing sending out emails for the next few days.
  24. I've received an email about a week ago from a prof. At UMD college park asking if I would come to University of Maryland, Chemical Engineering, if I was offered full financial aid. I responded immediately saying yes and he forwarded my email to director of admission and cc'ed me. He added a nice comment on the forwarded email. Haven't heard anything since then and it has been 7 days. What do you think is my status? Should I contact the prof? I need some feedback!! Anyone who was in this position? Thank you!
  25. Looking for any insight in what people think is important for success both academically and personally. Both places are great in terms of research fit and are funded. The major differences are listed below. Boulder: Amazing location/fun to live POI seems excited for me to join lab Princeton: Slightly better fit academically and culturally (I am strongly considering staying in academia and the department seems very tight nit.) Closer to home plus more money. I'm moving with my fiancée and family is important to us. The extra money and proximity for
