Dr. Dave

Our very own David Hogberg is now a Ph.D.!

    Oh, and what a glorious feeling it is!

    It’s especially nice for me because I made the mistake of letting my dissertation drag out over a number of years. If you’re considering going to graduate school, my first bit of advice is DON’T DO IT! My second bit of advice is that if you do go (you masochist, you) have at least some parts of your dissertation completed by the time you take your comprehensive exams.

    Otherwise, here is how I did it. I made a bet with my dad that I would have the dissertation finished by a certain date, or I would owe him $50, plus $10 a month afterwards for every month it was not finished. I’m not going to tell you how much money I lost. Suffice to say that by the time I lost the bet so much of the dissertation was completed that there was no reason not to finish.

    Anyway, it is all finished now, and I am a Doctor of Philosophy of Political Science with all the rights, privileges, and honors thereto pertaining.

Congrats Dave!!
