    Congratulations Randell! Hopefully you're headed for some tropical beach where you can just relax for a bit. You deserve it.

    :reporter: Randell, how does it feel to have joined the ranks of the world's academic elites?


    Edit: Eventually, that image will be changed to spell your name right

    Dr. Randell,

    Congrats, you should be very proud of yourself. Great job!! However, now that your a Dr., make sure you don't forget your friends here at degree info. You are a very valuable asset to those just starting out seeking educational information. So make sure you stick around this site and continue providing advice to all. Congrats once again!

    What fantastic news! You are certainly an inspiration to those who have set the highest academic degree as their goal. You have every reason to be proud of your accomplishment and never need to justify where or how you received a doctoral degree from a regionally accredited university. The challenges will come, most likely, from those who have not put the time and effort that you have to apply your knowledge, experience and expertise into a major research project that was defended beofre a panel of experts. It is a pleasure to call you "Doctor."

    Remember that a doctoral degree is, above all else, a certificate of endurance and, regardless of the discipline that we studied and researched, we all majored in the same thing: jumping through hoops :)

    All the best, my friend, in your next endeavor.

    It was done by phone. I emailed my PowerPoint to the committee and members the day before the presentation so they can follow along.

    I do not know what is more impressive - a PhD or being one of Dave Wagner's 10%. Nice job.
