Hello, I am currently a senior majoring in Electrical Engineering who is intent on entering grad school. I currently have about 5 or 6 classes to take before I graduate, with a possible extra class if I choose to apply to graduate with high honors and am looking at entering grad school soon. At the earliest, I could enter grad school next fall but I fear burnout, and moreover my qualifications since I haven't even taken the GRE yet (I plan to soon - before fall 07 apps are due). Unfortunately though, my schedule will be such that I can either graduate in the summer and forgo graduating with honors (my counselor implied to me that it wasn't that important) or I can stick around for the next fall, take some additional classes and qualify for honors. Recently one of the graduate coordinators at my university spoke to the undergrads about what admissions are like and all that jazz, and he noted that entering grad school in the spring (my current target for next year) is a poor choice because most graduate programs are small enough that typically all courses only have like one section, and that intro courses are taught only in the fall and their second components are only taught in the spring. This would make it difficult for me to set an appropriate pace apparently. My question for those in that know is then will my decision be poor to join a graduate program in a spring, regardless of institution? My soon-to-be alma mater, the University of Florida, is an absolutely massive school with a huge engineering program so I don't know how much more flexible other engineering schools are with graduate schedules. Thanks in advance.
