i did it!

I accomplished my scary task o' the day - mostly because I knew you were all cheering me on (and waiting for an update). Thanks!

Some of you may know that I never finished my degree - I spent 4.5 years at Tech and then I just left, in fact I don't even know what my final grades were. This has been weighing pretty heavily on me, and last night (in the middle of the night) I decided TODAY was the day to get the ball rolling; after all, we'll be in Houghton next week and I can maybe set up an appt with an advisor then. So I called admissions, and they transferred me to records - I'm now active for the fall term, and can switch to track B if needed - and then onto the humanities dept, and finally to the current HU advisor. She sounded really nice and I have an appt with her next Thurs at 9AM - she even has the old "transition" audit I filled out with good ole Bill Sewell (I'm bringing my copy, too).

This was really hard for me to do - in my head I kept envisioning profs yelling at me for being an awful student (I was), but so far everyone has been so very nice.

Good for you! Congrats!

You're not alone, I'm convincing my husband to do the same. He has one class left, Diff Eq, he's started it 4 or 5 times, and finished it once. He hasn't passed it yet though. Good luck!

congrats! my mom got her degree when i was 14. i thought she was the most amazing person for doing what she set out for, even with all the other stuff she had going on (work and kids).

it wont be easy, but it will be soooo worth it.
