Why W&M for graduate work?
I wanted a smaller program providing a good learning environment.
Best aspect of the M.S. program?
In addition to my research supervisor, the professors inthe department were always willing to help with any research issues that arose.
I will start the Ph.D. program in organic chemistry at the University of Utah in Fall, 2012. Afterwards, I plan to do a post-doc then seek an industrial position.
