Me! But I am a first year, so I am not even close to dissertation edits yet. Feeling a little jealous right now… finishing seems so far away 🙂

My Darling Husband is in the middle of writting his dissertation right now! After 5 years of grad school I cannot wait for when he is done. (we have been together since undergrad). My dad got his Ph.D. in Theology. He was ABD for 10 years! Good for you finishing in 4!

Ach! Writing is the WORST part! (In the middle of it right now). I WISH I was at the editing stage :-).

@Mrs.HMBucks:  Hah yea I have a lot of friends trying to finish up their dissertations before they go out on internship and are in editing stages – feel your pain through them :).

I’m in my first year of a PhD in counselling psychology. It has been a crazy busy year of classes and practicum work. I finished my Master’s only a few weeks before I started this degree, so I feel like I need a break even though I just started! I find it so hard to focus on school when I could be thinking about the wedding!!!

I’m in my 4th year, feeling like I’m floating along until I get my data and have something real to work on again. I’m only aiming to be done next year though so I still have a little longer.

@MissAusten:  I’m also getting a Ph.D in Counseling Psychology! I just have the last few chapters of my dissertation and internship left (I say “just” but it will definitely be hell). It’s hard to imagine that a day will come in the near future when this will all be finished and I won’t feel immense guilt if I decide to see a movie instead of working on my dissertation.

I second Beachkeen! I got my PhD in forensic psychology almost 7 years ago. I actually wrote my dissertation in about 7 months because I was so anxious to leave the city where the school was (I had moved there from across the country and hated it).

I started planning my wedding while running for citywide office, and I have to say that I think planning while in school may have been slightly easier.

Good luck, all!
