    I am applying!
  9. Take the gap year. You’re hella competitive to get in, but burn out is real. I took a gap year and loved it. Tbh what you do during that time (“projects”) won’t matter as much as the application itself so if you gotta work as a temp for 10 months then do it. It’s worth it in the end. (Also a social scientist so our fields could differ on the last bit of advice.)
  10. This thread was AWESOME. Ran out of likes, but thank you all!

    I also remember 12-15 as their target size. Claiming a GWU admit now. Likely declining because of transitions within the department. Great faculty, tho!
