1. It's not just about another 6 months. It's about the next year or year and a half of your life. Can you last that long there?
2. Are your recs from your current job? Can you leave without burning those bridges?
3. Do you have a new job in mind or can you challenge yourself with a new role in your current company? Getting a new job in Feb/March won't hurt your fall application as long as you can explain why you made the move and how it will help you reach your goals. The same goes for any lateral move or promotion (not that you would turn down a promotion).
Just some food for thought.Posted from my mobile device
