Hey OP, my stats and experiences are so similar to yours that I almost thought I made this post during sleepwalking😂 . I am worried about my chances this cycle, and in the meantime I feel very mixed up about my career plans if I couldn't get in this year. I opted out of doing a master since a)the cost is high b)I don't see a reason to earn a master degree while not planning on working in that field (I am dead set on being a lawyer and my undergrad major has very weak connections with law). During the past year, I have been looking for government-related jobs but I didn't get one, probably due to my lack of networking and working experiences in this field IMO.
I am currently considering if I should do a certificate in immigration law. It seems to be an opportunity to gain networking and have a better idea of the legal field. But I also understand a certificate in immigration wouldn't open up the kind of legal career I want. The cost isn't low either, so I am now debating whether I should go. The waiting is driving me crazy and without even a clear plan I feel increasingly anxious as days go by😰.
