Thanks everybody. Gael, it feels like yesterday, but it's been 4 years ago.
And I had an M.S. degree already from Prague which took 2 years, so the total
time is 6, and I had to wait 0.5 years after finishing my M.S. and before coming
to the US (paperwork), so this gives 6.5 years since finishing my B.C.
degree. The average
time for physics Ph.D. seems to be 5.5 years, at least according to [1], so
I am 1 year late, but I had to overcome a few bumps along the way ---
maybe I'll write
a blog post later.
