Graduate School for chemistry.

Hello everyone!

This month I will be applying for a lot of chemistry PhD program. But I am very concerned about my credentials.

While I have a pretty high GPA (3.95, Chem BS degree), and I guess alright GRE scores (161Q/164V, but 4 W), I have lacking research experience (only 1 summer REU and the following fall semester, no publications), and I'm afraid I'm almost certainly about to bomb the Chem GRE badly (I'm getting ~700 on the practice tests).

That said, do you guys think I should even bother applying to places like Columbia, Princeton, NYU? Or am I wasting money on application fees?

Thank you very much for your advice
