Confessions of a Grad School Dropout

By Brittany Stahnke Couturier

Personal growth, Education & teaching | eBook


At any one time, there are approximately 2.3 million students enrolled in graduate school. Over time, education becomes more important to future careers. As vital as advanced education may be, graduate school is a difficult experience for all and impossible for some, while little is known about the hidden, sometimes taboo, experiences prevalent. Students attend graduate school clueless and overconfident and as many as 50% will never finish. Confessions of a Grad School Dropout is not a set of objective statements about what graduate school entails. Instead, it is a description of common sets of experiences regarding graduate school, including why students leave, given from an insider's perspective. It allows understanding in all people of the break-down that often leads up to and follows the decision to leave. Not only for students, the author describes the decision-making process in every aspect of life and how it can change one's life forever.
