Committee Meeting for Proposal Defense

I can't believe it.

It's only taken me a total of three days from sending my draft into Adviser to getting my defense date set.

  • Monday around 5am at night, I sent my draft to my Adviser.
  • Tuesday in the afternoon, Adviser wrote back saying she'd read it soon and that it looks good.
  • Tuesday in the afternoon, Adviser follows up with email telling me that it is good, and to get the committee together for a defense date, and to edit her phone number on the consent forms.
  • Tuesday in the afternoon, I wrote to Adviser to clarify if she wanted to meet with me before that. I had psyched myself up to spend another few days to edit the proposal. You see, Adviser has high standards (one of the reasons I picked her to be my adviser).
  • Wednesday in the afternoon, Friend wrote to say that she met Adviser, and that Adviser "waxed eloquent about the superior quality of yours [proposal]." I took that as meaning Adviser does not require edits on my draft aside from her phone number. And so...
  • Wednesday in the afternoon, I emailed committee members a draft of my proposal and requested meeting dates and times.
  • Thursday in the afternoon (that is, right now), I am blogging about my proposal defense date. It has been set for 2 1/2 weeks from now.
