So I passed my qualifying examination today! That means I'm now an actual PhD candidate, which means I can really get my degree in... like 3 years or so. Still, it's a huge milestone, so I'm going to commemorate it by offering to vote on the first five debates posted here. Looking forward to doing some more debates soon too!

I care about how to solve problems,

Thanks guys. It was a tough road to passing this thing, but well worth the effort.

Your hard work paid off. :-)
I'm sure I can speak for the majority of DDO members when I say that we knew you could do it, and we're very proud of you.

Congrats Whiteflame! I knew you'd do well on the exam. What field do you want to earn a doctorate degree in?

Thanks, man (and, btw, please add me back to the mail list for the Council)! The degree is going to be in microbiology, though to be more specific, my work is in plant pathology.

The field you are focusing on sounds extremely interesting! There's lots of room for growth in that field considering that we are still discovering new plants all the time. So the potential for new plant diseases to be found or at-least the study of such things sounds really fun to me.

You'll definitely be included in the next Council Summit. Glad to have ya back!
