And the Verdict is…..?

I passed my viva (with the correcting of some typos)!  It took place from 2pm-4pm and Francis Watson and Simon Gathercole were both very friendly and helpful.  They did press me hard on a few things, and I certainly need to reflect some more on some issues before sending it to a publisher, but they passed me without need for any adjustments to the argument of my thesis.

This is very exciting and I am going to take some time to relax a bit before jumping into job interviews again!

I would say that the experience I had was very positive and I hope others can have as pleasant of a time as I did.  A few questions really made me sweat, but I survived anyway!

Thanks for all of you who prayed and gave well-wishes.  I look forward to publishing the thesis and getting some of these ideas out there.

Good luck to others who are also finishing in the near future.
