Going to grad school, but not right away?
I want to go to graduate school, but not right away. I have a hard major that requires a lot of studying, and I don't want to immerse myself in that for a full 6+ years straight. If I go to graduate school, but not straight after undergraduate, will I still be able to get a fellowship? Would it be easier to get in if I'd been working in the field where I plan to get a higher degree?

Some fields require work experience before applying, in others it can hurt you (the longer a break you take, the less you remember and the more you'll have to review and take undergrad courses). It won't keep you from getting a fellowship if you were otherwise qualified for one.Source(s): PhD in physics
