Averroes Posted December 1, 2017 Share Posted December 1, 2017 Hello, I applied for a PhD program and was accepted. I became pregnant after acceptance and had baby in fall so I took the first semester as mat leave which is unconventional but they accepted that. They are discussing with me whether I want to make it as a deferred acceptance to Winter or next Fall. Here is the problem. My university is in a different city. Years ago I was living there and finished 3 courses in that same program and left after for personal reasons. I have since moved to a near by city. I thought when I applied this time I would be able to travel for courses once or couple times a week and miss some classes. Now with baby it is very hard and help I expected not working out. Drive is 3 hours. I can take one course as directed reading from home. Other 2 courses have to be in class. I am faced with the option of dropping out from my entire PhD due to these 2 courses being offered only in class. I can come to campus couple times a semester but not weekly. My department said only in person works. I almost have no way out of this situation but thought of asking here first for any thoughts, similar cases, or grad regulations. (note: I know it is different from university/department to another but still seeking ideas). Thanks, A. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
