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!
See the several posts just below covering the three-days worth of questions I was privileged enough to answer!
All the best!
The Lost Ending of LOST
