Hi, I'm planning to apply to graduate school this fall and have come to choice of whether to apply for biochemistry or (organic) chemistry programs. I would prefer to go straight into organic chemistry, but I have been told that it may be easier for me to apply to biochem/bio and then switch into organic as I will have a biology BA with a minor in chemistry and not a BS/BA in chemistry... Chemistry-wise I will have taken the intro chemistry courses, intro chem lab, 1 year of intro ochem, a semester each of ochem lab, pchem, biochem as well as a graduate course in physical organic chemistry. Should I just apply to organic and hope for the best? Are my chances hurt because I will have a biology degree and not a chemistry degree? Thanks! EDIT: By the way, I also have over a year of analytical biochemical research experience culminating in a poster presentation as well as a projected pending publication in the spring. I would also like to go to a top school such as Scripps, Berkeley or Caltech.
