Today, I successfully defended my PhD dissertation! Now I am Almost PhD!
The only thing left to do now is make sure the requisite paperwork gets all the signatures and turned in to the Graduate School, and to finish up writing the dissertation. The dissertation is pretty much completed now. Just a few more modifications to make and I’ll have another draft to send to my advisor for feedback. I’ve got about three weeks before the submission deadline, but hope to have it ready to submit before that. Then the final step will be the graduation ceremony in mid-December.
