Graduating in December?

I’m curious…

Is anyone else graduating this December?

How are you going to spend the time between graduation and your (potential) start in a Ph.D. program?

Would it be beneficial in anyway to have a detailed plan for that time and mention it in your application?

Thanks!

Have you considered doing another semester instead of graduating? You could take classes to help you prepare for your graduate studies.

Yeah, that was definitely an option I considered before the semester but chose not to pursue. That’s no longer an option since all the courses I’m taking currently satisfy the requirements for the degree.
