schrodingerson Posted November 6, 2011 Share Posted November 6, 2011 (edited) Which universities im aiming for an admission in MSc. chemistry (Tiers based on my choice of programme, not how i rank them) Tier 0: ETH Tier 1 : EPFL Tier 2: KU leuven, Lund , Upsala < great research in the field Tier 3:U.S. Would you be kind enough to chance me? Is it hard to expect an admission here? Some people say admissions are as competitive as in the Ivy league. But i have my heart set for admissions to ETH. I have a chemical engineering degree from a school where eth usually admits 3-4 engineering applicants a year. ( i know this from alumni) GPA 7/10. grades are rather laughable. Gre 800Q, 600V. IETLS - 7 (barely made it Planning to give Gre Chem. Should do well. I have research work in theoretical chemistry. Developed and developing a couple of packages which are actually used in lab.Might end up in my first publication, maybe in the next 3 months (fingers crossed x) AND 1 internship and 2 projects in chem engg. which should not count. No pubs/confs as yet A couple of strong references from reputed Profs in chemistry. My SOP is tailored as to why i shifted my stream AND the skills i have developed over the years to work as a theoretical/quantum chemist. ECs are good but i doubt they will count. So should i keep my hopes up for tier 1? Edited November 6, 2011 by schrodingerson Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
