  1. Considering holding off a bit to try to find work as a lab or field tech. I would prefer to have three strong letters of rec., more experience, (maybe a publication), and get rid of some student debt before committing to graduate school. Regardless, I'll be submitting some applications out this December. I'm not really sure how competitive I am, so I've been planning on applying to a spectrum of schools (each with 1-3 potential PI's with closely matching research interests). I appreciate any comments/criticisms/recommendations!
