I took a year break and I am happy I did! It also made me much more grateful for the opportunity to go to grad school!
Not to be rude to those who don’t take a break, but sometimes there is a definite difference. When some of my classmates talk about “life,” I can tell they have never experienced what it is like to be a part of the “real world,” to not have school dictate every move of your life. I have friends that have done PhDs straight through and they have no awareness of the “real world.”
