celebration/stage

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at May 22, 2003 11:44 AM Stage Clear! Advance to the next level.

It's official - I have finished my classes for this semester, and completed the course requirements for the Ph.D. The next hurdle is the qualifying exam, which I won't take for at least another year. Then on to the final stage - the dissertation. Berkeley's physics department does not require a thesis defense, so I'll be spared that ordeal.

Doesn't sound like much when I put it that way, but I have three or four more years of research ahead of me. It's certainly nice to be done with classes, though. Tags:

You wench!

You don't have to defend your thesis orally?

Man, I was intellectually reamed during my defense. How can you justifiably put "Dr." in front of your name without the prerequisite ego deflation?

I'm bloody jealous...
