Hi, I wanted to ask a question about graduate school, programs, and ask for any advice on what I should do/plan for my future. I'm currently a Senior majoring in Biochemistry (B.S.), minoring in Mathematics, with nearly 160 credit hours and a 3.78 GPA. I have a strong mathematical and chemical background - I loved partial differential equations, complex analysis, numerical analysis, physical chemistry (thermodynamics and quantum mechanics), organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, and more. I took courses in JAVA programming, and I have been exposed to Python script through a research position. I currently work in two labs, one is a chemical lab, synthesizing organic ligands that may bind As or Hg atoms, and the other is a materials science lab, which seems to be more theoretical-based and deals with simulations of nanoparticles. I would like to know, should I go for the Materials Science? I like the subject matter, but would it be better to go with Chemistry? I don't plan on continuing Biochemistry or doing Physics. I would love to do Mathematics but i'm not sure. If I do go for one, should I go for the M.S. or PhD? I feel like I can't afford the M.S. but I can easily afford the PhD if I work in a lab. Someday, I would like to be more business-oriented, and perhaps hold an MBA in addition to the M.S....but is it worth it? I'd like anyone's opinion on this, preferrably from someone who is actually in one of these industries. I graduate this December and need to make a decision...i'm leaning towards Materials Science but again, I wanted the M.S. and MBA but maybe the PhD is better...job outlooks? Also, should I stay at my current university or move somewhere else? I am at UTD, Dallas, Texas...not the best school, but it's great academic-wise. But i've heard it looks better to move on to a new school for graduate studies, true for both M.S. and PhD? Thanks in advance, sorry this is long!
