Congratulations!!!!

It's the best feeling in the world to finish a dissertation. You'll feel good about it for years to come (I still do, even though it was so long & painful at times)

Enjoy your accomplishment!

Whatever you do, don't go into academia. Bunch of lazy slackers there.

How would you like to spend the rest of you life being proud of the 2 or 3 students you advised who got into grad school. Or the 5 or 6 papers a year you sweated blood over to publish, only to have been read by the same 2 or 3 people. Yeah, that is some accomplishment.

Congrats! But it's more like paying people to read your schlock than vice versa. I haven't even read my wife's and it is probably far more interesting than yours.

congrats on finishing. it's like climbing or moving, the last one percent just takes forever.

i just got back from the funeral of my mentor. he put in more than thirty years in the business-- not sure how many folks he mentored, but it was well into the dozens.

Unnecessarily pessimistic IMHO. But then I've been retired from the profession for about 13 years, and I worked at a small state college where research was a plus, but not really required. I'm sure KLK has an entirely different take on the subject!

Congratulations, that's a milestone along the road.

YMMV. Personally I love my job, and work really hard.

I knew you could do it!

And the best part is, you'll never have to do it again.

There's nothing more they can torture you with.

YOU'RE DONE !!!

Congratulations!

I didn't catch your area, but keep your eye on SUNY Rockland, we've got a lot of people retiring. Heavy teaching load (5/5), pays is usually in the low-mid 50s. Kinda tough by NY standards, but I'm surviving with a mortgage on a house minutes from the Gunks and a good wife who is grossly underemployed. You could do a lot worse...
