I am very grumpy after my “entry evaluation” with the faculty graduate adviser of my new program. Despite having something more than 72 credits of courses through my program at BA U, it looks like I will have to retake many classes. The problem is that most of my classes at BA U, weren’t officially listed in “head studies”. That’s because there was no department of “head studies” so now they want me to take five out of seven breath requirement courses as well as the language requirement. Seriously, it’s like my MA doesn’t count at all. Arg. I thought I had researched this.

Problem #1: They might be right. My transcripts look horrible, they are filled with independent studies and group studies, courses that don’t say anything on them. So it might be better for me to have a transcript that looked like I went through an actual program.

Problem #2: I will likely be very bored sitting through all these requirements and I don’t tend to focus well when I’m bored.

Problem #3: This will slow down my time to degree and I have already spent waaaayyy too much time in grad school.

ARG!
