Counseling, yes, and have you had an internship? Do you have one for this summer? That’s the way to get work experience and also some socialization. At my company these internships feel like a nepo-fest, but if you had a skill I wanted and I didn’t know you, I’d hire you instead of somebody’s kid.

Also, your first job can allow you to transfer that discipline from academics to business and really excel, while forming friendships with some of your peers. That was my experience anyway.

I did go to grad school because my mom urged me to and really with an English major undergrad I needed to. I feel like you probably don’t need to right now (unless it’s free somehow?), otherwise get some work experience.
