Note of Interest: this is actually what the U of T Ph.D. gown looks like. You can see the real thing here.

Wednesday, June 2, 2010
Panel 1: Barbara, Casey, and a lot of other Ph.D. graduates are milling around in their academic gowns before the ceremony. Casey and Barbara are approached by a young woman.

Woman 1: Barbara! What are you doing here?

Panel 2: Now a man wanders up.

Man: Barbara...I thought you must have convocated years ago.

Panel 3: Aaaand another woman.

Woman 2: Barbara? were my TA in 2002.

Panel 4: Barbara glowers in an exceedingly jaded manner as Casey smirks.

Casey: Think of yourself as "experienced."

Voice From Off Panel: Hey, look, it's Barbara! I can't believe she's not dead yet.

Alt-Text: When you take eight years to complete your Ph.D., convocation can make you feel a teeny bit obsolete.
