I shouldn't have worked this out


Tags:
Please note: the following is accurate for my life in particular. I realize that skipping sixth grade, getting two BAs in four years, and taking three years for an MA are all slightly abnormal (thought the last two cancel each other out) so this isn't universally applicable, but it is fairly close.

Kindergarten.........First Year Undergrad
First Grade............Second Year Undergrad
Second Grade........Third Year Undergrad
Third Grade...........First Year Masters
Fourth Grade.........Second Year Master
Fifth Grade............Third Year Masters
Seventh Grade.......First Year PhD
Eighth Grade.........Second Year PhD (Comps!)
Ninth Grade..........Third Year PhD (Teaching)
Tenth Grade..........Fourth Year PhD (Current Year)

I could theoretically finish my dissertation in two more years, but I don't think that is realistic. Three is reasonable if the money works out. It will take more than that if I have to get a job. In other words, the odds of me finishing my PhD before I could theoretically have gone all the way through primary and secondary school again are slim to none. *Sigh*
