Hello and congratulations on completing your MSc degree in Chemistry.

To make your application stronger for a PhD program, you should focus on building your research experience, improving your academic record, and developing your skills and expertise in your field. Some ways to do this may include:

  1. Conducting research - You can gain research experience by participating in research projects, either through your current or previous academic institution or by reaching out to professors or industry professionals in your field of interest.
  2. Strengthening your academic record - This can be achieved by taking additional courses, attending seminars or workshops, or pursuing certifications in relevant areas of study.
  3. Networking - Build relationships with faculty members and researchers in your field. Attend conferences and events in your area of study and engage with others in your field.
  4. Gaining practical experience - Look for opportunities to gain practical experience in your field. Internships, co-op programs, and volunteering can be valuable experiences that can set you apart from other applicants.

As for schools with a good probability of selection for PhD in Chemistry, it's difficult to make a recommendation without knowing your specific research interests and career goals. I recommend that you conduct some research on schools and programs that align with your interests and qualifications.

Look for schools with faculty members who are conducting research that you find interesting and relevant to your career goals. Once you have a list of potential schools, reach out to the faculty members and ask about their research, their program, and what qualities they look for in a successful PhD candidate.

I hope this advice is helpful to you in strengthening your application and identifying potential schools for your PhD studies. Best of luck in your future academic pursuits!
