So… how do you keep from killing yourself if you don’t get into grad school?
a. substance abuse
b. prescription drugs
c. eating disorders
e. furry animals
Console yourself with the fact that no matter what job you take in your year(s) off, it will probably pay at least $10k/yr more than a graduate student stipend. As long as you’re bullshitting your way through life, you might as well be making enough to live on.
