    ...is my new title.

    I started my student life 17 years ago and it ended last week.

    Are there other happy graduates here?

    I'm hoping to graduate as a Master of Science in two months or so! Just got to finish this thesis and sit a few exams first...
  3. Congrats! What is your degree in?

    I hold both a Bachelor of Science (honours) degree and a Master of Science degree. Currently working on my Philosophiæ Doctor (or PhD as they are more commonly known!) :)

    I have a portfolio night in a few hours. Hopefully I'll get a job or at least a few more substantial contracts over the next months.

    My degree is in graphic design, with a focus in Interactivity/UX.

    Nice. I made my bread and butter doing that for about 8 years. I didn't have a degree in it though.

    Will be graduating with my Master's in August. Then it's off to PhD Land in the fall with the wonderfulness of comp exams, dissertations, and conferences, oh my.
  15. I graduate on Sunday! :)

    Zero job leads though. I went through a three-interview process with a company, only for them to go with somebody else. :(

    The night and interviews went well. I might be the guy behind your next RPG game interface.

    Thanks for the site, Mohawk. The Grad Student Work Output totally reminds me of my Master's experience. I'm currently on an internship now, which is literally a 40 hour a week job. The problem is that I'm still trying to live on a "student schedule," where it doesn't matter if I have to stay up until midnight to get work done, because I don't have assistantship duties for the rest of the week and I don't have class until 5 p.m. the next day; so I can sleep in.

    Needless to say, my circadian rythmn hates me.
  20. Oh man, I wish I could sleep in. The last few weeks have been over 70 hours at the grind.

    It's saturday morning here, 8:17. I'm away to leave to get to the uni, doing some extra hours, need to be in at 9.

    Last night I was at a pennywise gig, first proper night off in the last fortnight, im deaf, feel like im dying, but god it's good fun :p

    I'd also say it's applicable to masters, because a masters is being a grad student (most of the time) :)
