Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior, Rebirth, Reckoning…

Thanks to Julian, from whom I stole this joke

    1. Well, that’s certainly the impression I get from grad students. 😉

      We also need to pin down med school, law school, and perhaps business school.

      Maybe a tasteless prenatal metaphor for med school?

      Med school year 1: “Fertilization.”
      Med school year 2: “The Quickening.”
      Med school year 3: “The Year of Morning Sickness.”
      Med school year 4: “The Dilation.”

      Or something less graphic:

      Year 1: “Textbook Safari.”
      Year 2: “The Year on the Precipice.”
      Year 3: “The Costume Party.”
      Year 4: “The Year of the Nomad.”

      Open to other suggestions on all fronts.

  1. Grad school years should be religiously/monastically themed: the Penance, the Confession (if your particular degree requires lots of self-reflection papers), the Flagellation, Limbo, Purgatory, or maybe “the Suffering.”

    College is the witness protection program — ha!
