The road to your PhD is nearing its end. You’ve spent years in school and look forward to walking across that stage on graduation day.
Before you can receive your degree though, you have to complete your dissertation and defend it before your committee. As you feverishly work to complete your thesis, grammar, sentence structure and word choice are probably the furthest things from your mind.
Your committee though may not be that forgiving. You may think a misspelled word or missing comma is no big deal, but to the people who will ultimately give the thumbs up or thumbs down, it will be seen as sloppy work.
