And the verdict is in....

At 10:00 this morning, I stood in front of a small group of individuals and gave a 20 minute presentation on my thesis.

At 10:20 this morning, I began the first round of questioning from my committee.

At 11:20 this morning, I began the second round of questioning from my committee.

At 11:35 this morning, I was asked, along with the audience to leave the room while my committee engaged in deliberation.

At 11:40 am this morning, my advisor congratulated me with a big hug and welcomed me back into the room as "Master Lucy".

Thank you all so much for your prayers, well wishes, and encouragement as I prepared for my thesis defense.

I have a few minor revisions to make but the papers are all signed and I am done grad school!

Hooray!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am a subscriber, but have never commented. I know you worked your butt off for this and you definitely deserve it! I intend to go to grad school and I am very intimidated by it. I've loved reading your blog on this topic over the past couple of months :)

Emily said...

Congrats Lucy!! Awesome.. I had faith in you and knew you could do it.

BTW, don't know if you feel comfortable enough telling me, but I was just curious what you were going to school for? Also, do you still plan to go ahead with careers and such once the baby comes... sorry if its to personal... I was just a little on the curious side. Just tell me to get a life if you don't want to answer... ha!!!!
