It is now late January. I am attempting to schedule my defense for the first week of March, assuming my meeting with my committee in February goes ok. This is proving impossible. Not only can I not get my entire committee in the same room, but I can't even get a damn room! I know it shouldn't matter all that much - once I'm done, I'm done, and if there's a little lag in actually getting all the final paperwork signed that should be ok. But this latest round of e-mails has seriously made me nauseous. I just want to be officially done!
