I started my masters program when DS was 14 months old. Its a cohort program where you go for 22 straight months - you have to go full time and you have to go in the order they create so it is a fast and furious jam packed 60+ credit masters (I believe most regular masters are like 45 credits). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/notes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="notes right-handed">: At the same time as I was doing this program, I was also working full time as the Managing Director of a young rapidly growing non-profit school. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: Craaaaaaaaazy! Truly great learning but craaaaaazy too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
My fabulous news is that I had my Candidacy Meeting yesterday and they approved all of my work in the past 21 months and have given me the green light for graduation. I have 2 small papers to write and one paper edit to make and I am home free!!!!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbsup"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/jumpers.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jumpers">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/partytime.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="partytime"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jammin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jammin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="carrot"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/broc1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Broccoli">:<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana">

Yeah for you!<br><br>
I went through a 60 credit masters while working FT, too. It was only 2 nights a week for 3 years though. We had a cohort for the first year and after that we could do what we wanted after that.<br><br>
But - it was pre-kids and "during" wedding.<br><br>
Congratulations. It really is an accomplishment and you should be very proud.

That's wonderful <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Congrats!!<br><br>
I just started working on my 2nd master's degree last semester. I don't work outside the home though, only have my trio to take care off...I don't know how you working mamas do school and everything else on top of it. I am in awe of you.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

I hope to post my celebration here in December. I am definitely looking forward to it!

Good for you!<br><br>
I am in grad school, too! It sounds like the same kind of program, too.<br><br>
I have three kids, the youngest 16 months. Some days I am just wiped out! But I am happy.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
