I PASSED!


Tags:
For those of you that missed it, the second half, the oral half, of my doctoral comprehensive exams were today. For those of you that knew that already and gave me all the lovely "You'll be great!" encouragement, thank you and you may commence with the "I told you so!" comments because I passed! Yay! I am officially ABD (All But Dissertation). So all I have to do to become Doctor is... research and write a book over the course of the next few years. For now, I shall bounce up and down in excitement.

Thank you, both for this and the email this morning. The encouragement helped calm the nerves a bit :)

Hooray! Congratulations, dear! And didn't I tell you so?

You did tell me so. More than once. I think my mom still has you beat both on the telling me so before and the telling me "I told you so" afterwards, but she is Mom. Thanks for all that support and putting up with my "I'm gonna fail" whines.
What's Taters, Precious?

Anytime. And you can whine through your Doctorate thesis, as well. :) We can both tell each other to shut up and write. ;)

Writing support sounds like an excellent plan!

Yay!

I think I'm going to enjoy the moment and worry about the dissertation in a few months. Maybe.

Oh, I do like saying this - I told you so!

Yay! Go party! :D

Yay! Party I shall. I am meeting friends for celebratory mini golf in half-an-hour.

Oh, congratulations! Should we start calling you Dr Jedi to practice? ;)

Thanks!

Considering it will be years before I finish the dissertation, I don't think anyone should be in much of a hurry to get used to Dr. Jedi. ;)

Bravo! So, now all you have to do is research and write a book over the course of the next few years? Shouldn't be too difficult. Can you work Remus or Han Solo into it?
Rachael
bratty_jedi at 2:54 am on 25 April 2007 (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, not very difficult at all... ;)

I am doubtful of Han or Remus, though that would be awesome! Maybe I could argue that star Wars takes place a long time ago and is therefore valid for historical study, but William and Mary only gives PhDs in American history and a galaxy far far away doesn't really fit.
