I dunno. But I can guess which student's parents are probably more worried. And which set of parents would give you the most worrying meeting...


The best thing I did was to take time off between undergrad and grad school. (That is, if you consider getting into grad school in a humanities field with few jobs a good thing.) Not only was I a better candidate, but I had time whether I really wanted to apply and why.


Oooh boy do I ever feel like student B at the moment. I had a baby mid-grad-school. My dissertation has been languishing and I recently failed to match in the increasingly-competitive psychology internship match. I don't think my parents will be visiting anyone any time soon, though.

My vote is Student A.
