StardewDropIn Posted February 5, 2014 Share Posted February 5, 2014 Starting to panic a little... 1 official rejection and 2 implied... all from my top 3 choices! I'm starting to think about taking a gap year, so I don't have to "settle" with an English PhD program that doesn't have good placement, isn't well ranked, etc. Is it possible to improve an application so much during a gap year that one might have a shot at a top program to which they were denied in a past year? If I reapplied, my stats would go up (3.7 to 3.8 GPA, would have "graduated cum laude" on my app, etc). What do people do during gap years? I'd ideally like to get a fascinating job and take more classes at a top school to boost my application. But I'm not qualified for any jobs really, and does taking a couple of classes actually help an app?.... Thanks for any replies! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
