2 thoughts on “PhD progress: a graph

  1. Very accurate! (Though for me my first year was definitely in the overwhelmed negative part of the graph.)

    Don’t forget the part at the end where it goes, “I couldn’t do it, but I’m graduating anyway.”


  2. OMG, great! A PhD is an accomplishment of endurance, not anything about intelligence. Not sure if it’s an uptick in “can do this,” but that last part was “gonna make it happen one way or the other” for me.
