so finally the corrected version of the my PhD thesis has arrived in UK safe and sound and I AM DONE!!!!!!!! I cannot believe it although I am on to the next project already. now, as for the advice: i had some major issues with my internal examiner: this person was the one who had to oversee corrections and although we usually get along great this wasnt handled very professionally. I know it was their first time dealing with a defence but some of it was just totally unacceptable. I am still not sure what to do now. there was one particular email that really was unbelievable and I was on the verge of forwarding it to senior academic staff but decided against it. instead I am wondering whether I should send it back to her and tell her that this was just totally inappropriate and unprofessional. but, is it worth it? I see this more as feedback - I don't want to officially complain (any more). but I am not her child, school student or even undergrad. in fact, now I am her colleague. so what to do? would you just leave it?
