Chance me for graduate school please!!! Stats: Junior at a SMALL liberal arts school Math/chemistry double major 4.0 GPA 2 years of research (thesis at home school) + 2 summers of REUs in biophysics at Princeton and the Czech Republic (hopefully 3 coming up) = lots of presentation and mathematical modeling experience -Chemistry thesis - synthesis of a antimicrobial compound -Mathematics thesis - existence and uniqueness of nonlinear relativistic wave equations and schrodinger equations Track and field team - decathlete Honors program - various community service projects Resident director (RD) Math 101 teacher Calculus lab assistant Chemistry lab assistant Calculus tutor Water quality analysis - full time job, lots of experience with statistics and Excel Courses: Math - Calc I-III vector/tensory analysis linear algebra abstract algebra ODE PDE probability theory complex variables Mathematica programming Physics - intro I&II Classical mechanics Quantum mechanics I & II Physical chemistry I (thermo) & II (quantum) Chemistry- general chemistry I&II organic chemistry I&II inorganic chemistry analytical chemistry biochemistry GRE - not taken yet! Assume an average score I want to apply to chemical physics PhD programs to study quantum mechanics/chemistry or applied mathematics to study chaos theory and/or PDEs. Would I have a shot at good research universities? I know I'm lacking in the physics courses, my school doesn't offer a physics major and I have to commute. I also haven't taken any grad level math courses, which I know is important (again, school does not offer them) :( Is there hope for top tier research schools? I'm looking at Harvard chemical physics (dream) and University of Maryland chemical physics, as well as applied math at various schools.
