TA-DA!™ Graduates —
Congratulations on Your Success
I successfully defended my dissertation three weeks ago, I am a PhD! TA-DA was an amazing eye-opener and the FinishLine newsletter kept me on the track while writing my dissertation, especially in the final months that seemed interminable … I mostly appreciated your suggestion to work on something else (tables, references etc.) when I was not feeling like writing or I had a writer’s block. At the end of the day I felt like I still did something toward completion of the dissertation instead of chiding myself for not writing. Thank you very much!
I would like to thank you for all the technical and motivational help you provided me throughout my thesis writing process. You don’t have a Magic wand but you made do one with every 15 min I had “nothing better” to do! The fact I was on time (for writing and editing) to defend my thesis was in part due to your advice:(paraphrasing) … do what you can do (i.e. dedication, formatting and so on) now so it is out of the way. Oh yes! Once I had my results, I was writing like driving on 495 on Sunday morning because there was nothing in my way. Please accept my heart felt gratitude from my family and me. I know you are going to say, take a break but don’t forget the revisions, yes I do read your monthly letters. (MS defended, TA-DA it is done, that means the thesis is good!) Very grateful,
Yared A., UMBC
