Like the Paper Planner above from U of Libraries, the University of Minnesota's Dissertation Calculator gives you an outline of what needs to be done based on the date you start your project and when you want it finished. Some information is specific to the University of Minnesota's graduate programs but most of the information is general enough to be useful no matter where you are doing your graduate work.
