Re: Deferring to Fall 2022 due to COVID
IMO if you're serious about doing a PhD, I don't understand why you would waste an entire year just because the classes are remote. PhDs aren't MBAs, the classes aren't big and you don't need to "network" with your classmates. It's quite a lonely experience and it's probably good to get used to that in the first few years. If the concern is only about the learning experience, as someone who grew up learning on YouTube (all the way through high school to undergrad), I actually prefer watching a recorded lecture. I would've done a LOT better during my undergrad if I could pause and rewatch the lectures.
