HOLA92upertask Posted April 4, 2014 Share Posted April 4, 2014 Hi all, I've narrowed down my choices between MIT and Stanford for a PhD in chemistry. I'm looking to do materials chemistry and physical chemistry with some interest in inorganic materials. I'm having a hard time picking even though there are sort of clear signs in one direction, but I don't want to feel like I'm taking an offer for peripheral reasons. Stanford 2 professors I'm interested in, 2 I could live with program is not as good in materials fellowship offer for 3 years beautiful weather faculty seemed a bit uptight requirements are less and seem less rigorous (no candidacy) MIT 3 professors that I'm interested in, at least 4 more that I could live with top program in materials research and inorganic chemistry no fellowships I've heard MIT is poor in terms of quality of life housing is expensive, stipend is not great I like MIT a little better, but Stanford's package is better. It kind of comes down to an out of nowhere pick at this point, but I'm looking for thoughts. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
