So You Want to Be a Dr. When You Grow Up?

Full-Time or Part-Time

  • I did mine totally part-time and it took nine years. I viewed it as a hobby and it meant that I had to give up some of my other hobbies. Just don’t give up attention to your family and friends and keep up with your exercise plan. The part-time approach wasn’t a problem when it came to taking courses, but it was trickier for collecting data during the research phase of my dissertation. You will need understanding colleagues and superiors. As a principal, my work slowed down in the summer, which is when I did the bulk of my dissertation writing. If you can afford to go full-time you can get this done a lot faster, but you should plan on at least four years.

    This is so incredibly applicable right now- thanks for this Dr. Doug! Though I am still waiting to hear back on my applications, I started the hopeless hunt for scholarships. All of these sites need an organization overhaul. I spend hours searching and digging, and most times I never hear back.
