Hrm, so this has been in the back of my mind for several weeks now. 'Tis not particularly relevant to tomorrow's defense but I'm wondering if I should include an Acknowledgements page in the 'final' copy of my thesis. It's not a required component for my program--heck, no one's even completed a thesis defense in approximately 5 years--so I'm unsure if this is expected, standard, simply a 'nice touch' or what . . . I'm getting "a little something" for my committee members anyway, but should I also be thanking them (and any others) profusely so it's carved in stone forevermore? And as an aside, I don't care what anyone else says, I remain adamant that I will absolutely, positively not be providing 'complimentary' bound copies to my committee members. $75/copy seems excessive for something that is highly likely to change anyway in order to submit to journals. But, I digress . . . Thoughts? On the Acknowledgements section, that is!
