I did it, I passed my comprehensive examination, all 81 pages of it. I am now officially a doctor; I get the PhD part after the dissertation. Even better, I found that I don't have to defend my comps, only discuss them with my mentor. Wow, this feels good. I'm now a freakin' doctor; I am Dr. Richard Wolford, soon to be Dr. Richard Wolford, PhD. This rizocks.
Ok, that's all for now, I'm celebrating!
Oh, and Jeebus and Gawd had nothing to do with this, only me and the support of friends and family. I didn't pray to pass, didn't plead, go to church, nothing. I busted my fucking ass to do this. I needs no jeebus, only confidence in myself.
