Congradulations...

On June 15th I will feel the same elation.

I am only leaving with a 19000 dollar debt and 2 degrees...

Then hopefully in 2 weeks I will be working for a college... it never ends!

I do presume that degree won't be in English....because what you will be is a college alumnUS.

Oh yeah....Congratulations on your achievement!

You beat me to the Latin!

Alumnus = masculine singular
Alumna = feminine singular
Alumna = neuter plural
Alumnum = neuter singular

etc.

In all seriousness, though, congrats! Just don't expect everything to change hugely immediately, though - I've been out for a year and a half and I still don't know what's going on. :-p

Congrats! Welcome to the world of unemployment, dog-eat-dog, backstabbing, etc!

What's your degree in, do you have a job, and when do you start?
