One of my committee members fell asleep during my defense.  For reals.  And, another one looked like he was text messaging the whole time, but supposedly was actually taking notes on his iPhone for questions to ask me.

  1. LOL! One of my committee members only read half the first chapter (and fully admitted that during the defense). Just shows you how seriously others take it 😦

  2. Sadly, I find the behavior of these two members not at all surprising, although I’ve never actually witnessed either while on a committee.

    I’ve definitely seen the “haven’t read it” phenomenon” (admitted to the rest of the committee but not the candidate in one case; usually glossed over in other cases).
