About a defense

I arrived half an hour early, ten minute talk printed out and rehearsed, boots changed for shoes, and bags abandoned in my department. No one else was there so soon, but I was conveniently placed to give the chair directions to the right room. We were assigned a room in my department's own building since we didn't require anything particular to the School of Graduate Studies (SGS). Everyone else arrived on time, and by five minutes past I was perched on a table in the atrium while the committee worked through mandatory paperwork. It's all about the paperwork at this phase of the degree.

For those of you interested in how these things work...and how mine worked out...Collapse )
