    Default Any grad students on here?

    Hi all,

    Just taking a break from the seriously addictive hunt to talk about something else.

    Anyone else here in grad school? Thought maybe we could share some of the pain/joy..mainly pain.. of the process together... a mini support group, so to speak. Anyway, I'm studying psychology, and this is my last year...

    Here, sadly, is an actual conversation from a recent meeting at school:

    MY ADVISOR: So, what's going on with everyone?
    (No real response, people looking at one another waiting for someone to speak.)

    ME: I can tell you what I've been doing with my time lately! About the new book I found! It's called A Treasure's Trove (Etc, etc... explain the idea, be way too excited and possibly scare some peers). You guys, SERIOUSLY, it's for real... you should get it!

    MY ADVISOR: And... what does this have to do with your dissertation? (jokingly)

    ME: Well... it's the reason I'm not getting it done! (people laugh) But I figure, if I could find one of the more valuable tokens, I wouldn't really need to WRITE a dissertation... I could just BUY one!! (kidding, of course)

    MY ADVISOR: (Semi-seriously acts shocked. Puts fingers in her ears and starts singing and rolling her eyes.)

    At this point, I start to emphasize that I really am joking, that I wouldn't do that.... the last thing I need is to be dismissed in my last semester for being unethical or for implied academic misconduct.

    Default mba here also...done in May

    finishing up my last semester and my gf brings home this book and says have a look---

    Only had the book for less than a week and have had fleeting thoughts when in class as to what certain portions of the book mean when a prof mentions something vaguely familiar to the book. Hope this book doesn't take too much time away from getting my other stuff done...
