Take a year off & get research job. Work, work, work, & develop an idea that gets you a great & the praise of your advisor. When you apply to grad school, have your thesis idea laid out & have already prepped & met with the professor you want to work with. Retake the GREs & this time take a course first. Finally acknowledge there's more than one road to happy!
