At first, the plan was end-May to early-June. Three members of my committee were okay with that. Then the 4th came back to say that s/he was not available then, and suggested up-to-mid-May or after-mid-June.
So on Friday, I sent out an email asking for the two weeks leading up to mid-May.
So far, two of the committee members have agreed. It being the weekend, I'm not going to push the other two. But if they agree, then I'll be defending in less than 3 weeks.
LESS THAN 3 WEEKS!!!
I'm not sure which is more anxiety provoking: not being able to set the date or being able to set the date!
