Is there a collective noun for grad students? A depression, maybe? As in: surface defect on society, among other interpretationsThe very interesting Kelly Sullivan responds: "the collective [noun] for grad students is an 'indenture'" and follows up with the very funny "graduate school... it's not just a job, it's an indenture!" Ouch!
I confess, both of those are rather depressing. Anyone got a better idea? I like the gentle "school", as in "a school of fish."
