Top definition
A condition experienced by some students because their friends have thesis and they don’t. Usually this happens when friends are starting to complete their thesis and graduate while these students are stuck with their own thesis. Thesis envy could lead to several conditions. One of the conditions is regression. This can be seen when thesis-writing students take classes that are meant for students below their level, for example taking classes for first or second year students. Another condition is professor complex, the students identify themselves with their professors and/or have an unconscious desire to kill their professors.
Example 1

He told me he wants to kill his professor because his professor is being very difficult with his thesis. I think he has thesis envy.

Example 2

Dude, seriously. You're beginning to talk like Professor Burns. I thing you have thesis envy.
