However, here are six areas to pay close attention to while your husband or wife is earning their advanced degree.Time with your spouse will become a precious commodity no matter what kind of school he or she is attending.After spending much of the day in lecture, your spouse will be expected to hit the books, project meetings, or the lab.Those nights catching up luxuriously on five episodes of "Modern Family" will be the first to go.But I also know moping about them won’t change anything. For anyone that isn’t clear on this, grad school isn’t particularly friendly to dating.(At least in science/engineering/mathematics grad school, which is the assumption I have for the entire post.) There are so many reasons for this that it’s hard to know where to begin.
Schools include those on par with top 50 ranked national undergraduate universities and liberal arts colleges or top 25 ranked graduate programs.* Exceptions include medical students and physicians, all of whom are eligible.This post is going to sound mopey, even though that’s not how I feel.I’ve just occasionally been frustrated trying to explain to various people that dating in grad school is much different from dating in college.But it’s utterly obvious to people actually in grad school. I’ll give the caveat, though, that many of these are negated, reversed, or lessened if a) you’re a female in science/engineering/mathematics, or b) you have a strong support system already in place in the area.Some of the above go away once you leave grad school and your life settles down a bit.
