I defended my dissertation today! I have to do some editing before I submit it to the grad college, but I am officially a doctor of philosophy as of today. Surprisingly anticlimactic, but I am sure it will start to sink in, especially after I turn it in for keeps.
woo for me! :D

It's a really big deal. It may feel anticlimactic now, but it will sink in.

Congrats Doctor Chatterbox.

If Snap's tree gets cut down in the middle of the night and no one sees it, did it get cut down?

Congrats!

But you are not a doctor yet, sorry to say. If you were hired at my school and did not finish your edits and have them turned in by the start of your job, you would not start as an assistant prof, but an instructor. Why? Because you don't actually have the degree. Once you have turned in the edits you can say you have "completed all the degree requirements", and you will be treated as a doctor. My school would give you full pay and title. But you still won't BE one until the degree is granted.

You have earned it though, which is all that matters.

Good job, a large percentage of people who start he dissertation process never finish. Some even hang on 10 years and then are faced with re-comping. But actually finishing the dissertation, a huge, involved, complex, high level, independent project that has to please a small audience of picky experts... be proud. Be very proud!

Way to go Chatty.

But to "please small audience of picky experts" ... it should be presented to the Loungers. :)
