​Choosing the next step to take after college can be a tough decision, but there are a wealth of resources available to help you recognize and sort through your options.  Whether you are interested in continuing your studies, finding a nonprofit/volunteer position or entering the work force, the University’s Career Services Center link to http://www1.udel.edu/CSC/ is a good place to start – and that can begin as early as freshman year.  The center offers individual meetings with advisors, career counseling sessions, workshops, career fairs, a database for full- and part-time job listings, together with help in writing resumes and preparing for interviews.

Graduate and Professional School Resources

(Note: most graduate programs in the sciences award incoming graduate students teaching or research  assistantships that include a tuition waiver and a stipend – i.e., you are paid to go to graduate school.  That is not true with professional schools (medical, law, dental), where you are expected to pay tuition.)

Career Services Center link to http://www1.udel.edu/CSC/students/gradschool.html : discusses important factors in selecting a grad school and application requirements.  There are sections with links to resources specific for a variety of professional school (law, medical, business, dental, veterinary, and optometry).

Planning for Graduate Work in Chemistry link to https://www.acs.org/content/dam/acsorg/education/students/graduate/planning-for-graduate-work-in-chemistry.pdf  : An American Chemical Society resource that describes why to consider graduate school, undergrad preparation, how to choose a program, and grad school activities.

Applying to Graduate School link to http://www.usnews.com/education/best-graduate-schools/top-graduate-schools/applying : advice of all sorts from US News & World Report – includes business, law and medical school information as well as more general discussions

ACS DIrectory of Graduate Research link to http://dgr.rints.com/ : a searchable data base providing information on research and graduate programs in chemistry, biochemistry and related fields throughout the country.

Chemistry Education Research Programs link to http://chemistry.miamioh.edu/bretzsl/cer/gradprograms/ : a listing of programs offering masters and doctoral degrees in chemistry education

Graduate School Rankings from US News and World Report for:
    Biochemistry Programs link to http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-science-schools/biochemistry-rankings
    Chemistry Programs link to http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-science-schools/chemistry-rankings
 
    
Graduate Record Exam link to http://www.ets.org/gre : many graduate schools require GRE scores as part of the graduate school application.  Most students take the GRE exam in the (preceeding) summer or in fall of senior year.  The General Test measures your abilities in verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and analytical writing.  Subject tests assess knowledge in a particular field.  The Chemistry test  link to http://www.ets.org/gre/subject/about/content/chemistry addresses analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry; a practice book is available at this link.  The Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology test link to http://www.ets.org/gre/subject/about/content/biochemistry includes a significant amount of biology (including genetics); a practice book is also available for this test.
