I have two initial impressions:
- This article would have been much better if it had been in The Chronicle of Higher Education
- Hey! They quoted Greg Nicholson from MSU! (15th paragraph)
Just in case any of you were worried, I'm in an MA program, not a Ph.D program. Although it will still probably take me at least 2.5 years to finish, since I'm also working a full-time job. And not teaching, which is nice for me, but I'm a touch concerned about how that might affect future employability or grad school applications.
