...a tribute to becoming a doctor.
Please do not give the graduating student a heart attack, kthxbye.
Attached at the end of this message is an alphabetical listing of graduates by degree type that you should print and bring with you to the Dome.  (The attachment can be opened easily using the Webmail format.) This will be the order of diploma distribution so it is important that you align yourselves in this order for the processional.  After the ceremony, you will be directed by faculty marshals to recess to the robing area.  Immediately upon recessing behind the curtain, you should step out of the line (remaining in alphabetical order, A near the curtain, Z toward the revolving door).

Open attachment. My name is not there. It takes me several minutes of frantic searching before I notice that neither are the names of any of my classmates there. Several seconds later, I notice a name I am familiar with - L, who graduated last year. It's the wrong list, attached.

I almost died, right then, O Best Beloved. I really did.

Wow, yeah, that would be a little scary. Glad it was all just a mistake. But on the other hand, the class for last year should be really happy, looks like they will each get a second degree! (you should make sure your diploma will actually have your name on it too, it would be bad if you wound up with someone elses)

Correct name, bah!

My college diploma was issued to my alter-ego--E Hoffman. She's also gotten an SSN and an engineering license from IN. Too bad she isn't me and I paid for her education.

(And yes, they did eventually send me a correct copy.)

Re: Correct name, bah!


I doubt anyone would think that you just stole someone else's degree, but that still is pretty annoying I would think, glad they got that straightened out. I wonder if I should double-check my diploma, god knows I have a name that people frequently mispell.
