A B in a Master's Program -- Some Advice?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)


I just finished my first semester of graduate school at an ivy league research institution. I am in an MA program and plan to apply to PhD programs. However, I received a B in one of my graduate programs and I am nervous that I will not be accepted into the PhD programs I like.

I know that I should strive to achieve a 4.0 next semester, but I am wondering how adcoms view a B in your first semester of graduate school?

Is there any other advice you have to recover from the grade?

(On another note: I think my mental health went down the drain during finals because I was so fixated on getting good grades, I think I might have self-sabotaged?)
