Hey everyone, I'm looking for some advice about graduate school (I'm finishing my BA in chemistry this spring). I graduated a full year early, finishing my undergrad in 3 years because of AP credit, summer courses, etc.
Anyways, I think I overworked myself, and my GPA is looking rough at 2.88 right now. No one in my family has ever gone for a PhD so I'm completely unsure what are "good" schools, and what mid/low tier schools I could have a reasonable shot at acceptance. I'm hoping east coast (looking at NYU (reach?), Wesleyan, Stony Brook, UConn).
More details: Haven't taken GRE (next week), minor in physics, research since freshman year (~1.5 years so far), will be submitting some papers for publishing soon. Assisting in the chemical stockroom for my last year.
I feel like my bad GPA is killing my chances and a lot of deadlines fall before the end of this semester. I did some math and I could realistically get up to a 3.0 by January if I keep my grades where they are at.
Help recommend schools please?
