Comprehensive Ph.D. Exams: PASSED!!!

I just received word an hour ago that I passed all my comprehensive Ph.D. exams! Now begins the dissertation. I have already written and begun circulating my dissertation proposal. It is my plan to have at least the first chapter written by summer's end, if not more!

Whew! Comps---conquered!

See the several posts just below covering the three-days worth of questions I was privileged enough to answer!

All the best!


  1. Congratulations, John. I never had any doubt you would pass.

  2. John, I can't say that I'm surprised, but congratulations!!! Well done.

  3. As my advisor said to me when I passed my orals:

    "Congratulations! You have permission to rest for one week. But then…"

    (I say, Take two, or three if you can.)

  4. Congrats indeed! What an accomplishment!

  5. Hey John - would you mind sending me an email so I can ask you about Baylor? Mine is jrm0701 (at) ecu (dot) edu.
