    When to consider MA before PhD?

    Hello all, I'm back with a few questions. I'll try to make this a straightforward thread. First of all, at what GPA/lack of experience does one consider pursuing a masters on the road to getting a PhD rather than just taking gap years to focus on research? Next, do grad schools pay more...
