Well, after years of “the dissertation will be due at some point in 5 or 6 years” I finally have a deadline: February 3rd, 2016! So the countdown begins.
Jorge Cham at PhDComics sums it up:
- Submit revisions of chapter 3
- Submit chapter 4 to a journal
- Write the dissertation part of my dissertation – insightful introduction and a conclusions that makes chapters 1 through 4 sound like part of master plan.
- Prepare my defense talk
Here we go!
