I gather that you invested in "faculty-quality regalia"? I went with standard but was pleased that it included the three chevrons on the sleeves. In black velvet! By the way, you looked stunning in your doctoral garb!

Wouldn't you rather have a doctoral sword, though? Getting your doctorate in Finland seems a small price to pay.

Yes, the Finnish one...I long for a crimson tohtorinhattu (this resembles a word in one of those made-up languages invented by your grandfather) and also the sword and magic box to go with. Although the somber Swedish black ones are very impressive.
