So, I defended and everything this summer, but had a slight bit of a financial aid hold due to a late bill. I got the hold cleared and so was able to get an official transcript indicating that I’d finished my degree, but the diploma has been long in coming. Well, I called them up today and found out that because of the hold, the diploma had been put in a pile that no one looked at, and until I called, they weren’t going to do anything with it, but now that I’ve called, they’ll send out the diploma. :) Yay! Soon I will be able to mark this task off as being “done” – but, like I said, I won’t do that until I have the diploma in hand.
