Re: Has anybody here ever quit grad school?
I quit grad school way back when. I signed up because I got a fellowship to live in Austria for a year. I had just gotten back from there and was itching to return, so I jumped on it. Spent my year there and two in Bowling Green, Ohio, trying to finish up a dual degree in German and Political Science. Got jammed up writing my thesis because I had to get approval from both the German and Political Science departments, each wanting to pull me in a different direction. I got fed up with the interoffice politics and knew I wasn't going to go on to be an academic anyway (which is what they geared you toward) and kicked off my career as a computer programmer and web designer.
Went to law school years later and stuck it out because I realized I really enjoyed working with the law. So look at your expected outcome and where you want to go with it. If I really wanted to continue on the track of becoming a teacher or university professor, I might have fought harder to finish my thesis and get my Masters. But really my heart just wasn't in it.
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
