    This is the place to discuss courses of action for ABDs, such as finding distance education schools that will award you a degree upon completion of a dissertation.

    Thse schools may be found in commonwealth countries such as the UK, Australia, and South Africa (ZA), with ZA being the most reasonable in terms of cost.

    I will not be ABD for a little over a year, but if I get stuck, I plan to hire all the help I need. An adviser, statistician, whatever.

    Your school in in SA, right? How has your experience been?

    So far, so good. They are willing to work with you. There is a different system to getting enrolled, and they have different terminologies, but I am breaking the code.....

    If we get enough listings/options I would say this would make an excellent sticky

    I am already getting several inquiries outside of this forum. The interest is there.....

    My first *official* doctoral class starts next month, and the term "ABD" already scares the Hell out of me......
