So, I got a friendly e-mail this afternoon asking why I hadn't confirmed my attendance for commencement next month.
Um, WHAT? I'm supposed to graduate in December 2011...I added on a 2nd major and it backlogged me a semester. My FI also graduates in December, but he got the same e-mail!
We'd both applied for graduation, and the school puts you in the slot that you are approved for.. but I highly doubt that these facts have been checked. I know that I at least need one class left for my 1st major to take this summer, and then 4 classes to fulfill my 2nd major in the Fall. FI also has 14 credits to take between Summer/Fall to fulfill that 120credit mark requirement.
So.....I called and asked what was up, and was informed that I can walk in the May commencement and still continue to finish my degree until the Fall. ??!?!?!?
I'd love that, I hated the idea of December graduation at first but learned to like it because it still meant, graduating. Right?!
So.. what do you ladies think? Should we walk in May and just continue finishing our classes? Will it take away from the excitement? (I still have grad school, so it won't be like I'm "finished" anyway..lol)
When I was at comm. college getting my associate's, I walked in May but still took classes in the summer and it never phased me. This is so, last minute (and mid-final studying) so my head hasn't quite grasped the option just given to us. Ah!
