Just curious, how many members of the MGoCommunity are graduating from U of M this Saturday?
I am, Bachelor's in Materials Engineering.
Though now you just get to spend the rest of your life wishing you could go back to college like the rest of us.
Two words for you....grad school
That's the plan--9 years later. I'm lovin' me some MBA.
I'm currently just finishing my 7th straight year in college. Graduating is for quitters!
I'm embarrassed to name how many years i've been in undergrad...
Just a shot in the dark here, but 10?
Nope, 12, but I did take 4 years off and multiple years of part time classes
College housemate of mine was a student in Ann Arbor continuously from 1991-2006. Bachelor's degree in philosophy, bachelor's in psychology, med school. Plus some time at WCC to do the med school prerequisites.
I only managed to squeeze in seven years of higher education between undergrad and law school (going to class was a dumb idea). Now at least once a week I end up like that guy at the end of Schindler's List just sobbing and shouting, "I could have done more, I could have done more!"
You mean, Schindler? ;-)
But it's all true. You've completely encapsulated the post college experience.
and i finished UM in 3, then a Masters, then law school
so you're just a quitter
bet you can't even spell properly!
After an extra two years of Masters schoolin', I can honestly say that I've had senioritis for 3 years. I ready to get the heck out of here.
... the Alumni Assn is on line #1.
I'll be there, Bachelor in Civil Engineering.
The real question is how many of you are getting drafted as opposed to prior to RR's arrival.
Congratulations! It must feel so good to know that all that hard work is culminating into a degree from the greatest university in the world. I can only watch with envy :)
You represent all of us. Do us proud. Be like BG.
Be like BG...I like that. Classy to the max.
Congrats on the MSE degree! What are you planning on doing with it? I'm an '01 grad from MSE that ended up with a masters in Biomed and working in a totally unrelated medical field. Is the job market decent?
Steel industry. I'm going to do operations work for awhile and try to work my way into management. In a couple of decades i plan on having a mid-life crisis and going back to school to become a history professor.
Isn't that every Michigan engineer grad's plan? Work for 3 years as a grunt and then get started down the management path by either going back to school or learning on the job? I know that's what I'm thinking as an ME after I graduate next year.
brother is graduating from Ross on saturday but staying to get a masters.
is also MSE, graduating this weekend. You must know one another...
I'll be back in town to celebrate with him, and actually showing up at the big commencement unlike mine 5 years ago (though I did go to the Friday night BBA graduation).
I didn't know Michigan State was finally graduating.
younger brother would have been a better term.
"You let him get a lead and let him get excited, but then you take it back from him."
Enjoy the next couple of weeks. The real world suuuuuuuuuuuuuucks.
Welcome to Unemployment?
bachelors in mechanical engineering over here
Bachelor of Business Administration. But definitely not graduating from the MGoBoard.
BA in Spanish, though I don't officially graduate until August.
BAxter you know I don't speak Spanish....
BS Biochemistry, BS Mathematics
Coming back for at least two more years though!
and I'll be postponing entering the real world at least another four years, although I will not be in Ann Arbor.
It's great to be a Michigan wolverine!
Tejas? Is that you?
I'm not Tejas but I know Tejas, who is this? Hahaha
Haha Tejas is my roomate/DJ.
Then chances are you know me, this is Ian, hahaha.
Nope, sorry. I'm pretty sure I know who he is though.
Just on a side note I did see that BTN will be airing the ceromony live with Obama and all on Saturday for those interested.
BA in history, but going to law school which I'm sure will be lots of fun.
feel free to pester me for outlines.
I won't forget this.
Graduating with a Master's from Notre Dame (University of Michigan class of '08 - the last two years have been ... challenging). Heading off to DC for a Ph.D. at Catholic U., so the real world is still far, far away (and not likely to get any closer, as I'm hoping to become a professor in due course).
I'm one of the few and privileged to have heard the guy who invented Spell Check speak at his graduation.
Oh, and one of the last public addresses by one Bo Schembechler.
We (obviously) didn't know at the time but we screamed as much as we would have had we.
The best of luck to all of you, whether you continue on into education or escape into the jobosphere.
Just remember, as some of us have already found out...
There's very few, if any, places that rival your Maize and Blue experience.
Congrats and God Bless
Takes a lot of hard work and perseverance to accomplish what you have, you should take much pride in that. Salud!
this is making me feel a whole lot better about my 11 years in college. Unfortunately I didn't graduate from M for any but my first degree. The other 3 have been as I've drifted further south.
Tried to get my wife to want to move to Michigan so I could have gotten my master's from U of M Flint (they actually have the program I graduated from in Cincinnati) but when I said the 4 programs in Michigan were in Flint, Oakland, UD Mercy, and Wayne State, she decided she didn't really want to live in the hood.
I see now that MSU has a program as well. Doesn't matter. Wouldn't have gone there.
Congrats on your accomplishment, sorry you will have less time to MGoBlog.
Bachelor's in IOEasy.
Now on my way to be a professional figure skater.
How much does a 4 year degree with room and board cost at UM? I'll finish with about 30k in loans from Wayne State for a degree in criminal justice.
All together about 100k if you're in state.
