Congratulations on passing your quals! Your dissertation sounds really interesting, good luck! I recently found out I passed mine as well! I don't have a dissertation topic yet, but I'm working on it too.

Congratulations on passing your quals!! Such a good feeling. Your dissertation topic is really interesting, too (I'm a public health student as well!).

emoticon MOTIV8U! Are you a public health student? Given the call for health care reform and health interventions, your dissertation could make a valuable contribution to the field.

Thanks so much!! The dream topic? I'd like to study how private entities (corporations, foundations) and communities can align to develop sustainable health interventions.

Great News!!! I have OFFICIALLY PASSED MY QUALIFYING EXAMS!!! I'm so happy!! Actually I'm tired, but happy!! :) I found out this afternoon. This means that I can put my committee together and start working on my dissertation topic. This has been the bane of my existence the past few weeks...trying to find an approach on my dream topic, and keeping the strength to not commit too fast to other options on the table. I'm also looking for funding so that I won't have to work 2 jobs while I finish up :O Its beginning to happen! I'm so happy.. YAY!!

This is no time to lose faith. Put those quals in the the hands of the Almighty who provided you with all the gifts you need to make this happen. Let us know how well you did when it's over. This will soon be yours. emoticon

Good luck!

Just keeping eating well and try to get a little exercise. It actually does help with exams.
