Dear PhD Students:

This semester 16 PhD CS students will take the comprehensive exam under the new format, with a written component and an oral component.

The first oral exam is scheduled for Tuesday, February 4. All are welcome to attend. In the new format, the oral exam is public, but only the 
examination committee members may ask questions. Also, the outcome of the exam will be conveyed to the student within a week (not on the exam day).
