QUESTION: Taking the summer off before grad school - yay or nay?


  1. Yay, because once you start you will NOT have any significant time off.

  2. Yay! That's what my bf and I are planning to do. Year of fun and then back to work.

  3. i totes want to do this as well, but moneys :(

  4. Yay, doing this for this summer before law school. Maximizing OSAP grant as well. Need some calm before the shitstorm.

    1. Yeah, I'm gon' be in that boat next year. My view: do it if (one way or another) you can afford it

  5. Yay! And go travel! Best decision I ever made.

  6. Yes. Do it.

    7 straight years of post secondary will defeat you. None of my friends that went straight into grad school from undergrad ever considered doing a PhD. At the end they essentially said, I'm done with school. Never again.

    You need a break. But make sure you keep in touch with your prof, and try to read a few papers related to your potential thesis topics in that summer. Just to get your mind crackin' away.

  7. Do it!
    Honestly, how many times in your life do you get the Opportunity.
