I'm starting my 3rd year of a 2-year program in library and information science (MLIS degree), and should be graduating in December. Yay!

Hi, I was a grad student until last year, now I have a fellowship, and I'm going back for a Ph.D. in Political Science (clearly I am a glutton for punishment). I'm already freaking out about getting tenure and I'm not even enrolled in a program yet! My GRE scores for my masters program were dismal, so I'm studying again. NOTE for those who are thinking about grad school: they are changing the format of the GRE next October. It will be longer and probably harder and it will be difficult to schools to judge the scores. If you are going back soon or plan to, try and take the test as it is now!!

Glad to see this thread...
I'm a 3rd year veterinary student and I'm tracking small animal. I had to take GRE's for admission to vet school and I used a Kaplan CD ROM to prepare. I've never done that well on standardized tests but for this one I was highly motivated. I did ALL the modules and games and practice tests as many times as I could bear and it really paid off. Just a thought in preparing for ANNOYING standardized tests.
Good luck, I'm sure you're going to do great!

Argh! My thesis is going so slowly!... I hope after the holidays I can make it go faster!

And then, when I finish it, I will need to find a job! Argh! So much pressure...

But at least when I do find a job, I will have a little more money for yarn :)

Just needed to decompress a little...

I'm in my 5th year of my doctorate program studying geology. I left physics (which I did undergrad) for the more applied sciences. I'm not really sure when I'll finish. Right now I feel like a career student. Good luck all you other grad students. Hopefully we all finish soon.

I'm a first year grad student studying history in a department FULL of knitters. When our class of 13 started there were three knitters. Since then three more grads have learned to knit and one guy's wife. We're slowly working on the remaining 7. We have a friday night knitting group (no class the next day, see?) hosted by each of us on a rotating basis. Movies, snacks, and gossiping about historians-- what could be better?

I was accepted into grad school 3 years ago and will be taking my first class this fall. I chickened out due to finances for spring semester. But now my employer has made an exception to their rule and they will be picking up half the tab, so I've enrolled. I'm going for a Masters in Mass Communications.

I hear you about the thesis. I just finished mine and by the time I did I wanted to go throw it down on the department secretary's desk saying this was my burnt offering to the god of the academy. It was crazy but knitting has helped me stay sane.

Take care, Bev

I am also in grad school -- I am a PhD student in Computer Science. I've finished two years of the program and don't know how much I have left!! My officemate Minh who replied to this post earlier was actually the one who taught me how to knit and introduced me to this forum. Although there are not many women in computer science, I find that the are a few who do knit during class and it's kind of cool to have the girls knitting during class... Two of my male officemates expressed interest in knitting too much is way cool because a lot of guys think it detracts from their manliness or some such thing...

In summary, I think knitting is going to keep me sane during my PhD program. I find the highs and lows of grad school affect me less now that I am bury my worries in a knitting project...

I'm in grad school currently at Washington State University. I'm getting an MA in Apparel Design. I'll be finishing my thesis project (a full scale fashion show) this year. :) There are plenty of young ladies in our program that knit during class and we are hoping to start a knitting club this year. I'm going to be a knit designer, so as soon as I have a good stash I'm going to be knitting in class all the time. :)

A knit designer! How exciting. You must post a link with pictures of your fashion show when it happens.
I'm about 3 months away from defending my PhD in genetics, and the only way I'm keeping going is bribing myself with a little knitting if I finish certain tasks.

I'm still in the coursework stage of my PhD in Information Studies... miles and years to go! I'm doing it part time while working full time.. so that's why I'm pretty stealth around here now. I took the summer off and did a lot of knitting, but the fall semester starts very, very soon...

Everyone in my lab looks at me like on some kind of freak whenever a big box filled with wool is delivered to me. I'm struggling with a PhD in biochemistry, hope to finish some time next year (unless I quit first).
Knitting keeps me sane... really ... after the whole day in the lab, my brain needs a break and the best way to relax and rest is by grabbing the needles and knitting few rows.

Good luck with your PhD's !!

I'm in my 6th year of a PhD program in Linguistics. I'm thinking of quitting. I'm always thinking of quitting. I should just quit. I've lost motivation. I can fill out a form and get my MA anytime I want since I've already done enough work for it, but the thought of learning yet another langauge (German for reading this time), writing yet another qualifying paper, and *then* finally getting to dissertation is too much. Taking classes was easy! I hate school.

I finsh my Master's in Health Management on 31st October so am deep in final dissertation write up mode - I am working full time too so am feeling so behind it's not true but with copious knitting breaks and a holiday in Italy planned for early November I am clinging to my sanity!

Hang in there everyone!

Hello Grad School students,

My name is Marie and I am about to finish my Master's in Industrial Design. I am specialized in Textile Design, so knitting is just part of the many things that I love to do with a thread and a needle.

Good luck to you all at school!

Marie.
