The oral exam went well and I passed. They raked me over the coals about this one thing that was pretty much a misunderstanding that I was never given a chance to clarify. A little coal raking seemed compulsory though. There were several times when I was asked questions and then asked to answer them and then never given a chance to answer them because everyone else kept talking. It was weird, and sort of like I expected it to be, and the main thing is that I passed and it’s over and now I get to mull things over until the real work begins next year (January).
