After doing my qualifier presentation back in May, I discovered there was another step before I could become a PhD Candidate.
The proposal presentation is supposed to demonstrate to the committee that my research is going on the right track and I’m actually capable of doing the work. Mine took the form of an NIH format grant proposal and a presentation to my committee.
Today I gave my presentation, and my committee saw fit to pass me, so now I can call myself a PhD Candidate!
This is good…I think.
Now the rest of the work begins.
