Debra, thanks for posting this question; it's definitely something to consider. Honestly, if you don't get into graduate school right away, don't let that sway you from pursuing your goal and being your best. I struggled with grad school applications right after finishing undergrad, and I didn't get accepted right away. However, that closed door turned into another window of opportunity much sooner than I expected, and I wound up having some amazing life experiences in my field of study. Have a back-up plan just in case you don't get accepted, and then when the final admissions decision comes in, if you don't get accepted, you can fall back onto the next best plan to help you achieve your goals. Only you know what those goals are, and it's wise to connect with others in your life (friends, parents, college profs, advisers, etc.) who can shed some light on how to help you get from point A to point B, even if it means taking a detour. You can do it!
Best of luck! Matt
