    Congratulations everyone who is graduating!

    I am currently going to SOU for a Biology/Botany option/ with botany certificate. I want to attend Humboldt State for a MS. I am at about 80 credits so I will be a junior after this summer. I already graduated from the MARINES! I finally recieved news on my medical discharge and I am part of the First Civillian Division again. Its good to be more sure of my future and be able to finally make plans. A new page if you will. Though I still have a year and a half or more of college left I am glad to be taking advantage of the new Post 9/11 GI Bill. Its going to make school a lot more educational and not a penny pinching affair in which my nutrition suffers ( I may use your tax dollars for that one special nepenthes I couldnt say no too!)

    I am planning on getting into horticulture or field research as a botanist. My teacher studies redwoods and how they get a significant amount of water from fog by studying isotopes and such.

    If any one has any advice on a Botany Degree I would love to hear it.

    I'm not really graduating, but I am finishing my last semester at my community college and transferring to a 4-year. I'm going to California Polytechnic Institute: SanLuis Obispo (Cal Poly: SLO) to major in electrical engineering.

    Nice! Congrats everyone!

    I'll be moving on from my community college with an AS in biology and will be transferring to UC Berkeley to continue to pursue biology and and chemistry. I feel comfortable enough calling it a graduation, I'll have a degree (even if it's just an AS,) I've spent 3 years there, and I'm done with almost all of my undergrad work.

    I'm going to California Polytechnic Institute: SanLuis Obispo (Cal Poly: SLO) to major in electrical engineering.
    That's great! My oldest brother went there and got a degree in Mechanical. Best of luck to you!

    Thanks! I was worried it would be too expensive, but then (luckily) I got a scholarship. Now it costs less than going to the local college, Oregon State Univ.

    I want to major in plant genetics. Then maybe I can work w/ Monsanto or something.

    Congrats to everyone. I'll be graduating 11th grade...which isn't too much. They say it's the the hardest year of high school, so I guess that's something to say.

    Wurm,

    Is that Cal Poly in northern California? My cousin is going to be going to a Cal Poly engineering school in northern Cali. I don't know how many there are, but it's most likely the same one.

    From someone on the other side (Professor) congrats are in order... for those of you still on the path...

    Practically any class can be a great learning experience, or a nightmare... as someone on the inside I see both the best and the worst that education has to offer

    Here is a decent ref, but take it with a grain of salt

    For the rest of you, hurry up and get a job and start paying into social security, Id like to see it financially solvent when it comes my time, heaven knows my 403b and IRA's arent going to do it LOL :P

    Congrats to those who are graduating.

    I turned in my last paper for a class in my quest for a Masters. I now just have to finish that thesis thing hopefully this week and get it all turned in/defended/destroyed and then edit it again and again until everyone on my committee is happy, if that's ever happen. Here's to hoping I can get two people with very different theoretical perspectives to both be happy with what I do.
