Hi everyone, I am currently a senior majoring in physics and I am scheduled to graduate in May 2015. I am pretty set on going on to graduate school and getting a PhD in theoretical Astrophysics, however, I missed the deadline for the physics GRE and I was consequently not able to take the exam. I can still get my undergraduate physics BS degree by May, but I now have 2 options, right? I could stay as an undergrad for 1 more year, and take additional classes including graduate courses that will make me more prepared for grad school. Or I could finish my undergraduate degree, graduate, and then work at a lab for 1 year to gain more research experience. Is the 2nd option possible? If so where could I get a job as a researcher in theoretical astrophysics?
