It hurts like heck, and it changes you forever."
The good news is that it's possible to do it in a way where you feel changed in an amazingly good way, and not horribly scarred with a misspelled tattoo. It might be hard to believe right now, but getting a Ph.D. can really be one of the biggest highlights in a very wonderful life for you.
