Distinctively David

It's been a tumultuous few months, and we're not quite out of the woods yet, but I can see light at the end of the tunnel. Most notably, today I presented and defended my senior thesis (you might be familiar with it). As of today, I will officially graduate Carleton College with distinction in Political Science.*

This was a big time commitment. And while I still have the normal coursework and final papers for this term to do, getting this done will free up a lot of mental energy. Hopefully, you'll see me back around these parts soon enough -- at least until I dedicate myself full time to visiting grad programs.

* Carleton gives the typical Latin honors based on cumulative GPA, and individual departments have the discretion to award "distinction" to their denizens based on criteria which vary from department to department.

Maziltov, David! That's great news.

I read a paper of yours what could have been in September of this year (but might have been September of last year). Not sure if that's the same thing, but I wouldn't mind checkin' out the thesis if it is more than twice as interesting as my undergraduate thesis on alternative measures of the money supply and at least as interesting as my graduate thesis on anti-predatory lending laws and the subprime crisis. Good luck searching for grad schools.

Yay for kicking comps! (I'm retrospectively jealous that you're already done and don't have it hanging over you next term too.)
