Getting out a semester early.

  1. Jan 2, 2006 #1
    I have just figured out that I will be finishing my B.S. degree in 3.5 years. Is it more difficult to get into grad school in the spring semester than in fall? Should I just wait 6 months?

    I would wait to get into grad school until the fall. Spend the extra semester taking courses you want to tak as opposed to having to take.

    I did the same thing, completed my coursework in the middle of the year. Transferred to the graduate department right away. Could kick myself for not taking a course or two that intersted me outside of my major as one of my professors had advised.
