For anyone that’s heard me moan and groan about school, I’m in the process of making my schedule for the fall semester. In talking with my advisor, I basically have 33 credits left (11 classes) that I need to complete. Four classes, I think are needed for my concentration or for the certificate program I’m incidentally doing, and the rest are electives.
Considering that most of these classes are "accelerated" courses that are 8-weeks, and in the past I’ve taken upto 6 classes in a semester, that means I *could* be in the home stretch. In theory, I could actually graduate with my stupid bachelors degree at the end of the spring semester! That would literally be 20 years after I graduated from high school!! That is, if I go nuts. Now that I’m taking all 3xx and 4xx classes, the workload is pretty obnoxious. So, that may not be possible.
Another big variable is that I’m at a point where I can take my capstone class too – but there is no syllabus for it and no information that I could find. I e-mailed the professor, but haven’t heard back yet. From what I hear from others, this could end up being a big deal on it’s own, so maybe I shouldn’t take a heavy classload while I’m taking this? Bottom line, I’m going to wait to hear back about this capstone course, and then commit my schedule (school starts on 8/30). I can’t tell you how exciting it is to be this much closer to completing this goal once and for all!
