    There are only 2 out of my class of 40. We just started, but I doubt we will lose them any more then anyone else. They seem smart and dedicated like the rest of us. :smiletea:

    Don't mean to stray off topic, but I was wondering why so many people drop? Is it just the material, or do they change interests or what? Just thought I'd bring it up

    To answer your question about dropping, it is because schools do a very bad job of selecting good students. The drop rate in my program is nil because the faculty don't "weed out" people once the program started. They already weeded out everyone and got the cream of the crop. They only accepted 40 out of over 400 applications-- and you had to have GREs and have taken a research methods course.

    My cohort has 40 and 5 males.
