I got my BA back today, and I did not get the Grade of Which We Shall Not Speak. Instead, I got the Happy Grade of Relief and Rejoicing! This is also known as the Grade of Graduating with Honors and the Grade of Getting a Grad School Recommendation. Oddly though, the two sets of comments I received on it frequently said completely antithetical things about my BA. My advisor said my conclusion that the school came to replace the militia in American republican thinking was not convincing. My preceptor said he loved it. My advisor said my background research was unusually thorough. My preceptor said it was lacking. Nonetheless, today, we celebrate!
It now appears that I am the last one of my non-UChicago friends to still be in school. Everyone else's Facebook picture features them in a cap and gown, and everyone has updated their work info with, um, actually work info. As a result, checking Facebook is starting to make me craaazy. Grr.
