Nice! I too am a grad student. I will be completing my Master’s of Public Accountancy by the end of next Summer (2012). I interned last summer for one of the big 4 firms in NYC, and will start working there next October! Meantime, I am also working on studying for my CPA exam, and also cannot WAIT for it to be over!

I’m in grad school too, actually just finishing my last quarter.  I’m getting a Masters in Education and Teaching Credential for Social Sciences, and I’ll finish June 2013.  I’m studying to be a high school history teacher and have taught a bit–including a really amazing lesson yesterday where I made up something on the fly and it went reallly well (the sub showed up without any interest in leading the class!).  My fiancé is also in grad school, which makes life both easier and harder.  He’s in his third year of medical school at the same university I’m at.  We don’t often see each other (even though we live together) because of our busy schedules, but we understand the demands of our respective programs.  I love grad school!  And I reallllly can’t wait to be a full time teacher!

Hey! I’m a grad school bee too! I’m studying Biological and Biomedical Sciences (more specifically, cancer chemical biology) and am in my 4th year of my Ph.D… I’m hoping to be done by the end of the summer and start my dream of job of teaching high school science! Yeah, what the heck was I thinking getting a PhD for that?! Well actually I realized about halfway through that I don’t think research is for me. So needless to say, this coming year is going to be VERY stressful finishing up projects, writing a paper, writing my thesis, job hunting, AND planning a wedding.

Im a grad school bee! I will be completing my Masters of Creative Writing and English Lit in November 2012. Then I hope to go on to do a PhD in the States ๐Ÿ™‚ We have just started our summer break here in NZ and it feels SO GOOD to have a bit of a holiday and not have to plod away at my research 24/7. The next semester resumes for us in Feb, but I will be working for a professor on a research scholarship starting in Jan, so I want to make the most of December while I can!

I’m in my 2nd year of a phd program in the social sciences. Still taking classes as well as TA-ing, and it’s a loooong road ahead–usually takes about 6-7 years in my program, so it’ll be at least 4 more years. I took 4 years to work between undergrad and grad school though, so I’ve been in the “real world” too, and I feel confident that I’m on the right path for me. School is so much work though! I had a fairly demanding, academic job, but it was more 9-5 than school has been. I’m hoping my schedule gets a little less gruelling after I finish my coursework (1 more semester to go!), though prepping for orals (my field’s version of comps or prelims) is apparently a nightmare too…

I’m graduating with my masters in animal science this month. It took me 3 semesters. I want to go to vet school but I have no clue if I’ll get in. I’m glad I am going to get a break for at least a semester.

@dynamic_duo: Haha so true! Thanks, and good luck to you too – your thesis topic sounds much more interesting than mine.

I am in the process of applying to grad school, does that count? I graduated in May and (stupidly) decided to take a year off, so I’m applying for MAs in English and one PHD in English program (which is my first choice, so here’s hoping I get in!) I want to teach at the university level and be involved with writing centers.

Both my SO and I are in grad school.  

He started in the fall of 2010 and graduated this coming May with a Masters in Math.  He is currently starting to apply for PhD programs.  He also TA’s (which is awesome because his school is PAID FOR!)  AND his school is over 2 hours from where I live, meaning we’ve been in a LDR for 16 months!

I just started my program this fall, I’m getting my Masters in Youth Development Leadership.  Since I’m still working full time and I am 1.5 hours from campus I started out part time this semester, but starting in January I’m going to attempt to be both a full time worker and a full time student.  I hope to graduate in December or 2013 or Spring of 2014.  Wish me luck, because next semester just might come close to killing me (full time both) and my SO (finishing his thesis).
