Abstract: Deciding what to do with your chemical education is one of the most challenging decisions that many students must deal with during their undergraduate education. If you are considering graduate school, there are many things that you should consider when deciding if it is the right choice for you. And once you decide it is where you want to be, there are numerous things you can do to help you succeed when you get there. This seminar will address many of these items and much more so please join us!
