I'm currently a junior on my way to a BS in Cognitive Science, and planning on applying to MS programs in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and Human Resources. I'm currently considering spending a year living at home (I live an hour away from the university) and working to save up a little bit of money for graduate school (while also waiting for my boyfriend to finish the 5th year master's program he's planning on doing at the school we attend, so he can move with me when I go to graduate school).
My stats are pretty good--I have a 3.9 GPA and will probably do well on the GRE, and I've been pretty active as a research assistant and TA during undergrad, so this thread isn't about the rest of my application. Will non-research-oriented graduate schools look down upon taking a year to work in a position that's not necessarily impressive or related to the field I'm going into? My other option is joining my school's five year double-degree program and adding on a BA in sociology.
