ABD April 22, 2008

Posted by Brian L. Belen in Academically Speaking.

Three years, sixty credits, a Master’s Degree and four doctoral comprehensive exams later, I am now officially one of the many graduate students around the world who fall under the category of “all but dissertation” (ABD).

It’s not such a bad place to be, as it is for all intents and purposes the penultimate stage to getting one’s doctorate. And from my standpoint it goes to show that everything thus far is still going according to plan. Now more than ever, the light at the end of the tunnel burns brightly, and all that remains to surmount this final hurdle is to dig in deeper and trudge on.

I will. But for now, at least, I will be content to take in the moment and enjoy it.
