I enrolled on a PhD in 04-05 and sued this website alot for guidance. I returend to it tonight for an update and noticed some familiar names were posting (ok it was only one- bilbobaggins).
Just wondering if any of you were posting around this time and how you have got on. I left the PhD, got a job in academia, and am now considering trying to take on the beast once again!
I started my PhD in 05 and finished in 08, got post doc and currently wondering where it all went wrong and why on earth I am down this route!! it is kind of fun sometimes, but a lot of the time I am fed up with how badly my new project is going ... but why do you want to go back to the PhD? have you hit a wall and need a PhD to progress? what ever the reasons -... good luck if you do go back!!
Hey Bazzab... I returned to the forum a couple of months ago. It looks like most of the familiar names are gone. I still haven't finished, as I had to take a loooooooooooong break due to finances. But finishing soon hopefully.
DanB, are you still in touch with Sylvester? Did he finish?
Good luck with the 2nd time Bazzab.
Thanks for the replies. Ju ju- yes I am getting invloved in research in my current job and think I am so much more prepared to take on and complete a PhD. Plus, I would do well in my current job if I was heavily research focused.
Thank you all, I wish you all the best. I hope to enrol in the next year where you will be hearing a lot from me again! Watch this space :)
Good luck Bazzab if you go for a PhD again. I was a full-time PhD student from 1994-6 but left due to falling seriously ill. More recently I signed up for a part-time PhD and recently completed it. The previous PhD experience put me in a really strong position. I knew what to expect the second time around, and was in a better position to make the most of opportunities. So good luck if you try too.
