A long time ago I started this thread looking for help and support while I struggled along in the doctorate from h&ll: https://www.pricescope.com/communit...esis-tacklers-researchers-and-students.86131/

A lot of PScopers gave me bucketloads of support and encouragement and the thread took off and became a great support for lots of other members slogging away with studies of all sorts.

My PhD became completely overwhelmingly difficult and I ended up taking a long long break from PS while I tried to focus on where it was all going wrong. I still lurked and read threads here and there, and I still felt the support of this community and remembered all the great advice I got back when I started the study support thread.

So, I wanted to come back and say the following two things -

First, a huge THANK YOU!

and

Second, that I did it!!!

I be now Dr Delster, PhD!!! :bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile:

Wonderful! Welcome to the 1% club (that's the percentage of the population in N.Am. who get PhDs anyways)! :rodent:

I am always curious when someone finishes their studies, what are your career plans now Delster?

1%? Wow, I didn't know it was that small. Interesting to think of it on those terms!

Congrats Delster!!!!

I remember dipping my head into that thread a few times. It was nice to read posts from people in a similar position.

I'm curious about your career plans, too! I went into industry but I hope to do a class or two along the way as an adjunct. I don't want to close the door on academia completely.

Enjoy the new letters after your name!

It takes a special sort of insanity to go all the way through. Based on those stats it is the least common mental illness :cheeky:
