MrsHistory-Bee:  Your Mom is already grieving, that is why she wants you to fight this decision. She is grieving the loss of her vision/dream of her daughter- the bright girl who is working on her Master’s.

Family process these events in their own way.

I would advise you to finish your degree as soon as possible. It only gets harder to go back to school,once you are married, have children etc.

You can always finish your degree at another school.  Some/most of your credits will transfer.  Think of your mental health, as well as your goals.  I do know someone who dropped out of a Master’s program and then reapplied at another school after taking a year break.  Do what’s right for you…

As far as approaching your mom about this, I would say try to lay out a plan-of-action, as it does seem that you want to finish your degree.

Best of luck!

MrsHistory-Bee:  I  wouldn’t say go back and fight for it because you don’t want to end up in such toxic environment. I would suggest though that you look into finishing your degree at another school. Look around and apply, as some bees said, some of your credits could easily transfer. Maybe talk to your mom about your goals and what you’re doing to get there. She thinks maybe you have given up on your own dream, and even though we know is not true, it is hard for moms to let go. It only becomes harder later once you get into the habit of not going to school. Best of luck.
