Huge Rave!

Post by Dr. Tower » Mon Jul 12, 2010 4:56 pm

On June 29 I defended my dissertation research in front of my committee and an audience. I passed with only minor changes to the introduction and conclusions sections.

This past Friday (July 9) I turned in my final packet to graduate studies with all of the required signatures and uploaded a PDF version of my Dissertation. At this point all I have to do is wait for the diploma to show up in August.

That's right bitches, you can now call me Dr. Tower!

It has now been changed to reflect my status. I.e. having completed everything and yet not having received my diploma yet. This should change in about a month or so.

And Rors, I actually don't have any because I received a stipend (small though it was) as a research assistant throughout grad school :).

Thanks all,

As for a job I've got at least a postdoc lined up, doing essentially the same thing for double the money.
