I just went to see my school advisor here at the college. I was expecting to graduate this spring and I thought I only needed four more classes according to my transcripts and major requirements. What my advisor neglected to tell me was that I actually need four additional classes in the sciences to graduate with a BS. So instead of getting out in four years, it looks like I will have to be here another semester. That's not so bad, but all the people I know are graduating this spring (with the exception of my room mate who might stay an extra semester. That would work out well for me actually) and I won't be able to walk with any of them at graduation. Also, I have a full scholarship (minus housing costs) and it only covers four years. So that means I will have to pay for the rest of my schooling out of pocket. I'm just so mad right now about the horrible and conflicting information my advisor gave me. Last semester he said I would only need to take four more classes. I thought I was keeping track of the classes I needed well enough, but he showed me this whole other section of requirements I didn't even know about. I also spent so much time taking classes for this silly honors program I was accepted into and those took up the 20 credits I should have spent taking biology courses. I keep trying to look at the good in this. At least I have another semester to figure out what I will do after school and I can apply to internships for this summer since I will still be a student. I can also put off GREs until the summer. I'll also still be covered under my dad's insurance for some extra time. My main stressor right now is the cost of all this. I'm also bummed about having to stay so much longer while most of my friends move on. Ugh, stupid life! Always throwing surprises!
