The idea of making XBox-style accomplishments for your own life intrigues me XD

Anyway, grats to you and everyone else who's graduated! I have just a few more credits left before I get out of college, hopefully I can make it by the end of the summer. Though I suppose it's not like the Firelord will take over the world if I haven't finished by then, or anything.

Congratulations! I still have a month and then two years left, but I'm not too torn up about it. I'll be able to take more of the courses I actually care about now.

I hope you enjoy the summer and have fun in college. :smallsmile:

This time of year makes me so nostalgic...

Just got back from my final, um, final. So, that's all done with. No more school ever again forever. Science can go sit on it, I'll become a musician or something.

Congrats everyone! I was in your shoes this time last year (graduating from college, not high school). Next I'm headin' off to grad school, so I guess in a couple of years I'll be able to post here again about graduating, this time with my Master's. :smalleek:

Though in actuality I never attended, according to the State of Oregon, I graduate from high school in two weeks... :smallcool:

Then it's off to Whitman College for me.

I took some time off from school though...I had to figure out what the heck I wanted to do. Had I gone all the way through I could probably have my Master's by now *grumbles*. Ah well. Prolly another 2 years 'till my Bachelors and I'll be happy.

I graduated from highschool three years ago and I have 2.5 years left to graduate from college, if nothing bad happens.

For the rest of you, congratulations! Seriously. Now go get a cow, a burning pire and celebrate properly.

Forgive me, I'm nosy. How does that work out? I didn't think homeschooling goes down very well with universities.

In the U.S., anyway, if you take your SATs...
Your ACTs...
AP tests....
and have some college credit already (I take some classes at a community college)....

They like you even if you've never set foot in a high school. :smallbiggrin:

Waaaant.....


Also, your education system is sooooo simple...

This year I will be graduating from Middelbaar Onderwijs VMBO-TL.

In 1995, I began my attendance at Lane Head nursery. In 1996, I went to Woodlands Primary School. In July 2004, I left Woodlands Primary School at and went to Pool Hayes Arts and Community College in the following September.

Officially, I graduate from British compulsory education on the 26th of June 2009, however, I will be going on study leave from the 22nd of May.
So I technically graduate in a few days.
However, I do plan to continue with optional education (6th form and A-levels) until July 2011. Then I shall try to endeavour into joining a university and studying either History or Law (or perhaps both). Which should take me all the way up to 2014 or perhaps beyond that.

Internet stalkers... DEPLOY!

No. No you don't. Going on study leave does not equal graduating. Nor does finishing your exams.

–verb (used without object)
6. to receive a degree or diploma on completing a course of study (often fol. by from): She graduated from college in 1985.
So you graduate on results day, or if you want to get technical, possibly not until a couple of months later when you get your GCSE certificates.

Hah, I've graduated from university twice! And hope to do so again in two to three years time. I'll have to stop after that though, accept adult life.

It's not a real graduation unless you're wearing a stupid robe. :smalltongue:

Truth.

Sadly, my stupid robe wearing days are behind me. Unless I plunge myself deeper into the dark abyss of debt to accumulate higher degrees I do not believe I have any sort of use for, my days of academia are behind me. And all I have to show for it is a heretofore useless degree in a stunningly gorgeous frame. Phoe needs employment. :smallfrown:

Anyway, congratulations to all of you grads or nearly grads. Best of luck in whatever level awaits you next.

About 3 years until I'm all finished up. Lots of fun will be had.

Heh, I almost accidentally put a guys eye out when I threw my cap at the end of the ceremony. And the robes were surprisingly comfortable, I kept wearing them for awhile after the ceremony. Though I suppose it helped that the heat broke the day before, so it was somewhat cool, which was very good because the building we did the ceremony in (City Hall actually) doesn't have AC.

So yeah. Thanks everybody!

I have had three graduations, two of which I voluntarily attended. I didn't wish to go to my high school one but my mom made me. :smalltongue: I worked my butt off for my A.A. and B.A. so I walked proudly for both. I liked my B.A. ceremony better- despite more students, it went by quicker and I got to spend the whole ceremony next to a friend from my psych lab. :)

Plus I could say I was a college graduate and not get glared at for only having an A.A. :smallwink:

Yep, its true. Though I'm not going to have any college credit or AP tests. Some of the colleges I visited last summer even had special admission councilors for homeschoolers.

This of course says nothing about the public school system in the United States. ;)

All it really says is that universities recognize that a homeschooler's tuition money is worth just as much as a public school student's. :smalltongue:

wow... they left you throw your caps? I wish we could have done that. But we needed our caps to get our diploma. All we got was an empty case when we walked up onto the stage.

But yeah. First year of college finished for me. Kind of annoying cause i got a 3.49 GPA this semester and my Mom wanted a 3.5 and she's giving me crap about it. But that's a different story.

Prolly another 2 years 'till my Bachelors and I'll be happy.I took some time off too. I didn't get my BS until I was 30. :smallcool: I could've had a PhD by then if I'd just, you know, gone to school the whole time. Ah well. Took some more time off after that and am now slowly working on a MS. Three courses down and something like 9 to go. Experience has now taught me that at this level I can no longer be a full time student AND a full time worker bee. :smallcool:

Had 2 years left until I got my B.A. Now I've decided to do a double major... Add another 2 years with 2/6 under my belt. Don't know how I'm going to do it degree wise though - BA + BS or just a BA with a double major... Or switch to BS.

Stupid question, but what's an A.A.?

I've already graduated, but I just remembered today is the first anniversary of my Final University Exam, which allowed me to acquire a Master's Degree in Computer Science.

Also, it was the best paper I had in four years of study. All my preferred subjects came up. It was kind of like one of those really fun video game levels where you get an eleventh hour superpower and go to town.

When I went up to get my Bachelor from the new Dean of UNE (who is also the federal representative for this area, and also the the Speaker of the House of... one of them, Senate or Representatives), I shook his hand... and walked away without my degree :smallredface:

Zeb The Troll

Stupid question, but what's an A.A.?It's an Associates degree, which is a two year degree typically earned from a community college. For a lot of people it's a great way to get your first two years of college education on the cheap before progressign on to a regular four year school.
