Hi there. I have searched far and wide over the internet, but I have only gone in circles. I stumbled across these forums, and hopefully someone here will be able to lead me in the right direction.
My case is a little different from most of the topics I have read. I am actually working towards a degree that is somewhat removed from Chemistry - Pharmacology to be specific - at the University of Toronto. However, I do have a solid background in Chemistry; I plan to complete a minor in Chemistry in addition to my specialization in Pharmacology, and I have received good grades in all the Chemistry courses I have taken. I took Organic (2 semesters), Physical (1 semester, plan to do 1 more), Analytical (2 semesters), Atmospheric (1 semester), and a Chemistry research course (2 semesters). Furthermore, I will be taking a 1-year internship as an Assistant Analytical Chemist beginning in September, which I assume would strengthen my application.
I was wondering if universities (prestigious preferable, of course) would consider undergraduates from my field. If not, I suppose I should just give up right now and continue in my path. If so, though, could anyone recommend any schools with good graduate programs? The area I am currently looking at is Analytical Chemistry. (I noticed that there is another sub-forum specifically for Analytical Chemistry, but there were no topics of this type.) Most of the information I found is only about schools in the US, but does anyone have information on institutions outside of the US?
I realize that my questions may be difficult to answer, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
