After 2 years of continuous researching and writing, I'm happy to say that I've submitted my dissertation to my committee and it has been accepted by all of them. The end process happened rather quickly; I submitted my final version on Friday, Sept 11th, and by the following Friday, I had all of the approved forms signed. Whew!
Next (and final) milestone: my dissertation defense. It's scheduled for Wed. Dec. 9th at 5PM at the Ladera campus of Pacifica Graduate Institute. Information for attending and an abstract will be posted here later.
