Hooray! You're finished!

Liz Johnson said...

WOOHOO!!! Congratulations, Jeremy!!!!

Are you going to sign your name "Bridget Palmer, wife of PhD" now? You totally should. You've earned it.

Eevi said...

Congratulations!!!!! What an accomplishment:)

Britney said...

Congrats! You both must feel so relieved.

My husband is ABD, and so that makes me curious: How long did it take, start to finish?

Bridget said...

Yeah, I can totally see why people insist on others using the "Dr." title. It takes a lot of time and effort to get there. That said, I don't think Jeremy will insist on it. But maybe I will. :)

Britney, it took four academic years. But he busted through as fast as he could. I think five to seven years is common, but of course it depends on the discipline.

Congrats, BOTH of you! I know us wives don't have to earn the actual PhD, but it sure takes a lot of effort from the wives to make it happen! We love you guys!

YAY!!! VERY exciting. You're a wife to a Dr. now.
Way to go Dr. Jeremy Palmer!

Congratulations to all of you! What a wonderful feeling to have actually finished.

Jeanerbee said...

YAY! That's so GREAT!

Jeremy Palmer said...

Thank you all. Bridget earned this as much or more than me. Don't forget that I still have a significant amount of work to do (revisions)...

Nancy said...

Oooooh! Only 4 years? I'll be sure to tell that to Andrew. ;)

Laura said...

Congrats! I don't think that there is a better feeling then finally finishing something that you have worked hard on for a long time. Again congratulations!

Natchel said...

Yipee!! Now you should take a four year vacation. :)

Spencer said...

Congratulations! I can only imagine how it must feel . . . Maybe I'll try it someday . . .

Congratulations to you both!

Someday, maybe we'll have a chance to compare notes on our experiences as the wives of Ph.D. candidates. I think being the spouse of a Ph.D. candidate is an experience in and of itself.
