    So, like, you told him to address you as “Ms. Doctor Professor”?

    Of course!

    i personally like professor, as technically speaking, the honorific of professor in terms of academic standing is higher than that of doctor, but hey, whatever floats your boat. I’m still shocked that people call me any of those things!

    as a proponent of informality, i’d say you are ‘jill’ and let them salute someone else;)

    Comrade Jill, please say hello to Brown from me! Reading your post just gave me a pang of homesickness. Say hi to everyone, and to the campus. And do have a coffee at Ocean, a sandwich at Geoff’s, pizza form Pizza Pier…
    Now, wait. Just have a good time and make your own memories. I should probably go there myself to revisit mine.

    I have been trying to get in touch with you in order to arrange an interview with Bergensavisen where I work. However, I get this funny feeling you re in the States right now:). Please e-mail me, it would be very interesting to talk about your Ph.D, if you are interested.

    Yours,
    Silje Norevik

    I prefer Dr. because Prof. refers to a profession and I don’t think the degree and the profession are synonymous.

    When someone call me Ms. or Mr. I insist on being referred either as Jamie or Dr. Blustein. It is a personality quirk of mine I suppose.

    I’ll see you at Mark’s soon!

    I have “On-Star” and told them that I prefer to be addressed as “Dr.” When the advisor comes on to assist me they say “How can I help you Miss Collins?” I say, “Dr.” and I then make my request. Or, the advisor will say “Good morning, Dr. Collins. What can I do for you sir?” I say, there’s no “sir” here. Then they say, “I’m sorry how can I help you.” I make my request. Then they say, “Thank you for using On Star Miss Collins.” You gotta love it!!
