I almost forgot to tell you! I am exactly halfway done with the school part of grad school!
I started in summer 2007. Since then, I have taken 4 full semesters, and 3.5 summer sessions.
I will be finished with classes in summer 2011. I have 4 more full semesters to go, as well as 3.5 summer sessions!
I can't believe it - there is actually an end in sight. It's all downhill from here.
Granted, my dissertation will have to be completed in this time, and then I have a year long internship after finishing classes before I can graduate. So I'm not exactly halfway done with grad school. But I'll take being halfway done anywhere I can get it!
