Tough question! I've been there before. I jumped right into graduate school after college, and sometimes I really wish I had taken a year to intern and get some real world experience while I focused on my grad applications. Instead, I applied during finals week while still in school. I got in to the school of my choice, but I graduated at age 24 with a high level degree and NO REAL WORK EXPERIENCE! Grad school is expensive and will take over your life for two or three years, make sure you're sure about it before jumping into that much debt and commitment.
