    This is the greatest group ever. I am in Grad School for my doctorate, and even though I love academia, there are times when things become really heavy. My cohort is quite small, so it’s awesome to find more people dealing with the craziness of grad school life. I am involved in Communication Studies, in the good days I love my field and in the bad days, I miss my family and a normal life. Hello everyone!

    • Hello and welcome! I’m hoping this will be a good place to commiserate!

    • What kind of communication studies are you working on, and what do you plan to do with it? As far as journalism goes, people have told me that it’s pointless to get an advanced degree unless you’re going to become a professor. I’m looking into getting an MA in international and interculture communications because it’s part of the Coverdell Fellows program of the Peace Corps (this is assuming I make it into the PC in the first place), but after that, I’m not really sure what to do. I’m thinking becoming a professor would be my dream job, but I’ve also been told my lots of people that it’s not worth it, either. Meh! :(
