For those who are wondering, I finally got the thesis wrapped up and submitted for publication on Monday. My final thesis committee member got back from camping, signed the thing off, and after an afternoon of running around, I had the thesis in and all the rest of the paperwork in for graduation. The paper was a lot more solid this time, and a lot more focused. I think I cut the main body back by over 1/3 compared to what I submitted for defense. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to publish it on my blog anytime soon, because the Tech Transfer Office wanted to keep it under wraps for at least long enough to file a provisional patent. I’ll make sure to put it up here once they’re done. Also, I’m planning on continuing the work a bit in my spare time.
As for the paperwork, I’m going to follow-up tomorrow to make sure that they have everything entered in correctly. However, as of Monday they told me that I had everything in, so it looks like I’ll be graduating after all. Thanks everyone for your support and encouragement!
