Ouch on the 2013ish date. Is that a Dissertation defense? Last time we spoke (I don't remember if it was on this site or another - this is a different name then I used last year, I can't remember my old one!) I forget if you had said you were done with oral defense or not. While we are putting projected dates up, my projected date of comps would be fall of 2010. And I am shooting for 2012 finish date. And then it is off to the "we have no jobs in history" rat race.
