big news!

Weber did it! They finally awarded me my second bachelor's - I now have a BS in English! It's a miracle. I may have worked harder for this than I did my first degree from BYU. Remember all those painful noises I made about Shakespeare - over a year ago? And remember all the posts about riding the bus? Did i ever write about the inappropriate final? After applying twice, submitting two sets of transcripts, going through two separate appeal processes, not to mention endless time on the phone, I was seriously thinking I'd have to take them to court. But then, miracle and happiness!

thanks sherp! and just so you all know why it was such an issue. apparently when pursuing a second bachelor's at weber your 30 upper division level credits must all be taken in residence. don't listen to your kind department heads who say they'll honor classes taken at byu or utah state - they may not mind, but the graduation office does. oh, and another important lesson -read your registration book (the 200 plus page book) with all the rules and policies of the university listed.
