I was hoping to get some advice on what to do next. I applied to 8 PhD programs and thus far I believe I have been rejected to all of them (some with no reply and some with actual rejections). I even interviewed at 2, but no luck. I'm feeling down and not sure where I should go from here. Should I do a post bacc and reapply after, try and get a job in industry or as a lab tech, apply for masters instead? I'm just not sure what the best options are. I just graduated undergrad a semester early in December, my GPA was very high, great LORs, I have 3 years of research experience with a written thesis and summer fellowship, and am still working as a lab tech in my same lab. I will hopefully be on a publication in a few months but nothing regarding publications was on my application. Thanks for any advice.
