First of all, I apologize for the nature of this post. I am freaking out inside and I am branching out to seek as much advice as possible.
I am a 4th year PhD student, and I am looking forward to defend my thesis this year. However, I am confused of the timeline I should follow. There are two initial submission deadlines in our university. First in April for defending before August and other in August for defending before December.
What should I do?
