ABD. Three dreaded letters. They stand for "All But Dissertation." And this is exactly where far too many former graduate students are stuck: sometimes for years, sometimes forever.
Why? Any graduate student who is done with class and now faced with the inevitable dissertation will tell you it's because the process of researching and writing a dissertation is just too difficult.
There are many reasons why this is the case. Possibly first and foremost is the fact that graduate school is incredibly expensive, and now that their courses have ended, most students need to get back to full-time work. Given that writing a dissertation is itself a full-time job, this can be the kiss of death to the dream of many years.
Another reason is simple burnout. Again, years upon years of seemingly endless study only gets you to the door of the dissertation; opening that door can seem virtually impossible. And so, many people decide to take a short break, and unfortunately, that "short break" tends to lead to a permanent vacation from the dissertation.
Many people are also stuck at the ABD stage of things because they have amassed so many materials, printed literally thousands of pages of studies, and taken at least as many pages of notes, that they are simply overwhelmed. There is a kind of paralysis that can arise when faced with what seems to be an impossible task, and that is exactly the kind of paralysis that does arise for far too many dedicated people who are victimized by their own too-thorough research skills.
It is a shame to have gone through so many years of back-breaking labor, only to end up in ABD limbo, regardless of the reason.
