Hello fellow high achievers who appreciate a good ball of yarn. I have my Ph.D. in clinical psychology. Went back to school at age 37 with three young children. I think I must have been a bit insane but I did very well and have a great practice here in CT. I love to knit and to garden. I think that people who use their mind in an intensive manner need a release. Well, actually, we all do. i love the fact that Ph.D. high school grad, or drop out, all women can circle around a good knitting project. And I must say, for all of my education, I am still struggling to get the gussets on my socks correct. My grandmother did it with no education and no videos online, and no pattern. Hmmm.....

After posting way up in this thread about hoping to defend some time ago, I actually defend on April 2. Wish me luck. I have not any time for knitting in about 2 months!

I finished! Now I have four glorious days to knit as much as I want, without guilt, until my new job starts!

All of these posts are very motivational. I got a masters 14 years ago. Went to school SIX years straight!! Thought about going to law school..even took the LSAT. Don't remember how I did but was good enough to get in to the area law school...then, money was an issue. I am thinking about going back to school because I changed organizations -- went from working for a city to a hospital. I really want to go back but I do so like my free time! And I have a 12 year old son who I LOVE to spend time with. But....I do miss school.

I'm in grad school too. I'm in a dual masters degree program in social work (M.S.W) and in Education of infant and parent development/early intervention (MS.Ed). There are no other MSWs in here?

I'm always in school, compulsive learner, i spent 9 years almost straight doing an honours degree in applied science (specialisation - clothing) and then a doctorate along the same theme. Now 7 years latter teaching fashion design, on a degree course and doing research, I'm also part way thru a 2 year post grad diploma in tertiary teaching, and I so want to make it a masters .... why? seems easier than making the research project smaller.

some one stop the mad scientist who also wants to buy enough yarn to knit a cardigan in silver merino and silk on 2mm needles, stop me stop me stop me - oh maybe don't bother, when i comes to knitting I probably wouldn't listen any way.

I hope to begin an MFA in Creative Writing in July-- it's a low-residency program with lots of travel and intensive 10-day residencies, so I expect to knit a lot more!

Knitting and writing are great companion activities, each a good break from the other.

I have my masters in linguistics and have thought about doing a PhD program (thinking of you mwedzi!).

I've also started working as a health educator, so I've thought of getting my MPH.

Currently I'm in a program to get a certificate for workplace Spanish.

The thought of doing another grad school program, while interesting, does concern me. WHERE would I find the time to knit?

I dropped out of graduate school years ago. I was studying public administration and I really disliked it. I was working in the field at the time. Now years later living in a foriegn country I am contemplating going back to school for a Spanish degree.

Interesting to read about everyone's accomplishments. Way to go and good luck for those reaching their final steps.

I was reminded of a cute thing my mother thought of when I read the question near the start about what do you call a nurse with a PhD?

I was originally to go straight from my Bachelors degree in Geology, right into a PhD program. A few life twists came along and I didn't do that. About three years later, living in a different part of the country, with my new successful business under control and hunning along, I went back to grad school and took my Masters Degree (in geology). This regional university didn't offer PhD programs, anyways,... my proud mother would say that I wasn't a Doctor of Geology, but that I was a Nurse of Geology. Very cute!

Just thought I'd post an update. I am now half way through my Master's program. I'm taking a break this semester because my personal life went to he11 last semester and taking two classes while working full time was just too much. I feel as though I can see the end even though I only take one or two classes at a time.

Saw this post started a while ago, but thought I'd add to it - I'm in my second year of my Ed.S. in School Psychology. It's a 66 credit program, and I've got 41 done as of December, working on another 10 this semester. Looking for an internship right now, which will be a full-time (unpaid - in this area) deal for the 08-09 school year. Will be graduating May 2009.

I finished Industrial Psych and have been a business consultant for almost 5 years now. And now I am looking for something that is interesting that's beyond my field. Learning is my passion.

All I have is a Bachelor's degree in Music (Education), but I'm published like 9 times over, so I guess I'm well beyond post-doc by now!
