francheese Posted March 20, 2014 Share Posted March 20, 2014 I was recently admitted to NCSU and I find their program favorable and I wouldn't mind moving to Raleigh, however, I am on the waiting list for a TA position (though the waiting list is quite short). Other than that, I have two rejections, one waiting list and a two more hanging out. I should preface my dilemma by saying I could have done better on my GREs and, in hindsight, my application as a whole. As you can tell I applied several places desperate for an acceptance due to my applications starting late and in the midst of big life changes. Anyways, I would love to go to NCSU if I knew I had a TA but otherwise... would it be worth it to wait another year? I am 23 and working in an unrelated field. I could take the time to explore other jobs related to my field, though I would be sorry to leave the money I am making in my job which is, consequently, helping me save for moving to Grad School. Thoughts? Is anyone else contemplating waiting until next year to apply again and make their application stronger? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
