Hi PF,
As maybe a handful of you know, I am a non-traditional student who has had the dream of becoming, and who is slowly working their way toward, a Doctorate of Mathematics (Ph.D). After all the years of grinding towards it, I wanted to ask those who have made the summit, what was the surrounding circumstance and what was it like when you first received your PhD and they finally called you Dr.__________?

Thank you,
Chandller

what was the surrounding circumstance
I was in graduate school for many years, working on my thesis research project (in biology).

what was it like when you first received your PhD and they finally call you Dr.__________?
Relief at being done with the writing up part.
Celebration (of getting PhD and being done with the writing up part).
Still interested in issues with my research project that were unresolved questions. Many open ended issues derived from the subject.
More in depth consideration of what to do next (possible Post-Doc jobs).
