Jwnich1 Posted January 17, 2012 Share Posted January 17, 2012 (edited) So as a second time applicant, abeit with a much stronger application this time, I'm nervous. Sitting around waiting for decisions, really puts my nerves on edge. I'm starting to consider what happens if I'm rejected again; determining a plan B. At first thought, taking courses at a local university, trying to work my way in to a research assistant post etc.crossed my mind. It seems to me though that most local schools won't let me simply "take courses" and most research posts in my field, no matter how junior, require you to have or work towards an advanced degree. Bottom line: What is a political science junkie supposed to do, if he can't get himself in to a PhD program this year? I worked hard, and fervently hope I make it, and I wish everyone else the best, but whose started to think about alternatives?
