When working towards a degree, did you ever have to change degrees?
When working towards a degree, did you ever have to change degrees because you couldn't meet the requirements to get into that particular program, and what did you change to? Are you happier with the change, or do you wish you had stayed with your originally planned goal?
I can't speak personally on this, but I have worked with people who either 1) could not get a residency in their chosen specialty or 2) could not assemble a dissertation committee for their chosen line of research.
In my experience, yes, there are feelings of sadness and disappointment. Some chose to keep working towards their original goal and others applied their same passion to a new goal.
