I scheduled my thesis defense date today!!!!
Quote | Reply
April 9... I'm so excited. It's an undergraduate exercise science thesis, so I will graduate with some level of Honors (depends on how the defense goes ;-)

It felt so cool to pick a date!!! This afternoon I had a committee meeting and presented what I've done for the semester (was like a final exam only worse as far as nerves went). The meeting went flawlessly, my committee members and advisors are quite happy with the work I've done, now it pretty much just needs to be polished up (bigger project than it sounds)... and defended!

"That much schoolwork..."

It was very overwhelming when I started but it's like everything else, set aside time to do it. I try to work on it every day and make it a habit. Some days I schedule for long days to get a whole bunch of stuff done. Other days I've gotten an idea and written 10 pages or so like THAT. Is annoying when I get working on it like that then something like class sucks me away from it.

The polishing it will be more work than the writing part of it. Easy to research and write, harder to perfect it and work on the tiniest details.

On a somewhat related note, how is physics going? My final was last night and I'm pretty damn sure that I rocked the final again and got my A.

My final is Tuesday.

It's going OK. I will need to do pretty well on the final to get an A though. Which is to say it'll be a stressful weekend of studying, as I am working on M and T (exam is 5:30 pm Tuesday evening).

wanna come take it for me ;-)

Lol ...I am wearing black dress slacks, a pink v-neck sweater, and black pumps with 3 inch heels. My mom said the outfit looked very professional, yet still feminine :-P

I just hope I don't fall on my face. I have a thing for cute heels ...I just wish I wore them enough to actually be able to walk in them...

It's over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Final verdict: conditional pass ...I am over the moon :-)

They want me to do a little more writing and figure out a thing or two about biostats before I 'officially' pass, but that is about as good as it gets for the microbio department here :-D

Congrats! I am sure it is a big relief. I have my defense on Monday to earn my doctorate in Physical Therapy. I can't wait to be finished. After that I have the Federal Board exam and then I can practice.

I am at Bellarmine University in Louisville, KY. My undergrad is in Accounting. I know it is not the traditional undergrad route but I wanted a business background. Let me know if you have questions about the program here or PT school/career in general. I would be happy to answer any questions.

reviewing the contents of your thesis with your committee a few months out from the defense is a wise move; I've seen a few Ph.D. dissertation defenses that were very rude awakenings for the candidate that simply assumed their advisor and committee were OK with their work despite their being in the dark about the contents. It will still likely be a stressful event for you (these things usually are), but if your committee voiced no major objections now then all you have to do is take their comments and suggestions from your presentation seriously, make no major mistakes during the defense, and you'll pass. With proper preparation the defense is usually something of an anticlimax.
