Officially a Doctor

February 2, 2011

It appears that yesterday my degree officially posted:

I finished revisions on the dissertation and handed in all the requisite paperwork back in August but have been in “lame doc” status since 8/20/2010. My doctoral liminality has finally come to an end.

    Congrats! I also needed to come find out what a “lame doc” is because there’s going to be a gap between when I defend and (if done successfully) when I get my diploma.

    But you can’t stop now. You are allowed to hang up your skates only after you get tenure, if it exists by the time you would get it. After tenure, you are allowed to go back to playing golf or whatever you did before you took vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience.

    Congratulations, Jim.

    Congratulations Dr Getz 🙂 We had a lame doc in the family for quite a long time recently, it’s no fun in limbo 😦
