We have a date!

I had my first PhD committee meeting (the folks who decide my fate) today and we set dates for my comprehensive exams!! Why do you care? Because after my exams we're off to the races for #2! I'll be taking my written exams at the end of the summer and doing my orals next November. I'll find out if I've passed the day of my orals. So, we can start TTC some time in November! Woot!

Haha! No. I'll have at least 3 more years after that. These exams advance me to 'candidacy', which only means that I'll get a master's degree as a consolation prize if I drop out. Really they just do them to torture me. I will demand to be called Dr. Erin for at least a month when I finally do graduate.

I didn't know you still had 3 more years. I'll totally be calleing you Dr. Erin at that point and insist you wear a lab coat at all times for a few weeks after! Seriously, that is a ton of work you are doing!
