On Being an Unmarried Girl in an Engineering Graduate Program

The odds are very good; but the goods can be odd.


  1. Funny.
    Most of the male engineers I know are different types of thinkers than most guys.
    All of the women I know are different types of thinkers than most guys!
    Good luck!

    (I should mention that one of my favorite young women is in an engineering graduate program...but she's not single. She's my daughter-in-law!)

  2. That's why the guys are engineers. What's the reason for girls?

  3. You would be amazed at some of the guys in liberal arts or psychology graduate programs.

  4. I had originally planned on a major in chemical engineering before crashing on the rocks of calculus in my freshman year and changing my major to Linguistics. I prefer to think of myself as "eccentric," rather than "odd," as befits someone who can get excited over the intricacies of German and Russian Grammar.
