I compile my code and the abstract shows up before the titlepage, but I want it after the title page.

\documentclass[12pt, oneside]{report}

\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}
\geometry{letterpaper}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage{indentfirst}
\usepackage{amssymb}

\title{Thesis}
\author{by Me}
\date{April 15th, 2013} 


\begin{document}

\begin{abstract}

stuff and nonsense

\end{abstract}

\maketitle

\tableofcontents

    Just call \maketitle before environment abstract and after \begin{document}. – Mensch Feb 26 '13 at 5:20

The following code seems to work well. \begin{document} should be before the title.

\documentclass[12pt, oneside]{report}

\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}
\geometry{letterpaper}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage{indentfirst}
\usepackage{amssymb}

\begin{document}

\title{Thesis}
\author{by Me}
\date{April 15th, 2013} 


\maketitle

\begin{abstract}

stuff and nonsense

\end{abstract}

\tableofcontents    

\end{document}
