I am interested in going to graduate school and would like to get some information about what it takes to get in, how competative schools are, etc. I am majoring in chemical engineering and am interested in either chemistry or chemical engineering for graduate school. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

so am i. evidently this board is for prospective froshes only... which is interesting and cool, but not what i was scanning about for.

aim me if you want: thexixthcentury
i can tell you what i know (i'm applying to english programmes though, so may not prove to be much help)

I'm afraid you're right. There's no reason this board *couldn't* serve the prospective grad student community but 99 percent of the angst and obsession is in the undergrad application process.

I'm in the same pool as Ysette9. Not in grad school yet, but if anyone knows a site like this one...but for grad students, please tell!!!
come on, don't be shy!

Oh there is still plenty of angst at the Grad School entry level. DD1 will be graduating Magna Cum Laude in Anthro and can't decide whether that is really what she wants to do. Apply to a top school in Anthro, pick a new path, be adult and get a job, etc.?? Yes, there is plenty of Angst.
And of course the top grad schools in professional fields (law, medicine, math, business) appear to be even more selective than the Ivy undergraduate admissions.
