first, thanks for having me--i feel honored and unworthy. and, slightly jealous of all of you who have actually begun dissertations. speaking of, i wonder if you all would be willing to share the prospecti that you turned in to the grad school? i would love to check them out if you have a moment to post them (or, if you'd rather not post them, my email is email@example.com). hope y'all are well.
