Welcome to the Dissertation House On-line. If you joined us in the past, and you are still not finished with your dissertation, you can join us again. This page is dedicated to all of you who will be spending the summer working on your dissertation.
Here in Maryland, we look forward the start of Summer 2012 Dissertation House. You don’t have to be graduate student of the University System of Maryland to participate. Join the larger academic community of dissertation writers across the globe. Start posting your goals for the summer here.
Are you working on your comprehensive exams? For your exam, how many questions do you have to answer? How many days to you have until you have to submit the exam? Pretend that each question has a deadline to it.
Do you want to complete your proposal? Did you apply for IRB approval? How many interviews can you transcribe in one summer? How about completing that methods, results, discussion chapter, or literature review? Pick one. At the end of the summer, what will you have accomplished on your dissertation? Keep in mind a good dissertation is a done dissertation. To finish you need to make daily forward progress.
This is a collaborative effort. Why work alone, when you have an online community to help you—join us. Don’t be shy, you don’t even have to use your real name. Focus on completing your degree. Set some intermediate deadlines. Remember to keep your goals manageable and measurable (in bite-size pieces). Simply put use this site to keep yourself accountable and to post your to-do lists.
