I'm about to finish up a BA in linguistics and am looking at some interdisciplinary options for grad school (specifically in cognitive science).
I have a competitive GPA in my last two academic years, though my first year was a bit of a wash to say the least.
I was thinking that it would be a good idea to go back for a second degree for the following reasons:
- to boost my cumulative gpa (my academic performance in first year was a pretty big blow to my cgpa)
- to gain a better understanding of my research interests. (There are certain science courses that I haven't taken that make me feel downright incompetent without, such as first year physics and math.)
However, I'm acutely aware that I know nothing when it comes to grad school admissions, especially when it comes to interdisciplinary programs such as cognitive science. Is a second degree worth it?
