    Since I finished the Ph.D., I began reading the discussion forum. I felt empathy for you as the same thing happened to me (my advisor dropped me upon approving the prelim. prop.). I know how you felt; however, you need to plan ahead and move forward. Don’t let this affect the rest of your life.

    My story is unique because a tragic event occurred on the way to the Ph.D. which set me back 2 years. I cannot recount the challenges, heartaches, and frustrations that I encountered during the process. What was cathartic for me after I finished was to write a book as a chronicle of my experiences during the journey. The book evolved as a personal account but more importantly, advice to doctoral students so that they can avoid making the same mistakes I made.

    If I can do it, so can you.

    Good luck.

    Dr. D.
