For those of you who don't know, I am working toward my Master's degree in Information Systems. I though for sure my latest grade would end up being an A- because I would have had to get a perfect paper for an A onour final team project and this professor grades hard. Well we go the perfect paper and I ended up with an A by the skin of my teeth. [Smile] That makes a total of 8 A's and 1 A-. Only one class to go and I will be done.

On a related note my son's report card came in and I was pleasantly surprised. Despite some low grades on a few of his tests, he made the B honor roll. [Smile] While I know he could do better if he applied himself I am just glad he did not get all C's like I thought he would.

Congrats - I hope in 10 months I can post about my 90% average throughout my entire high school life (So far 3/4's of the way there). But congrats on the marks - how old is your son?

Thanks everyone. Steven, my son is 12. He is in his first year of junior high and thinks he is all grown up now. [Razz] Seriously though he is actually starting to think maybe school isn't so bad now so that is something. There's hope for him yet.

Awwww - wow he is growing up quick then. I think at that age I was still just going for as high of a mark as I could get because I didn't want to have to be around the "idiots" my whole education. So much for that plan ...

Congrats to you and the lad, 'Gator.

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Well done CrawGator. [Applause] [Applause] [Applause]

So, once you've officially been awarded your Masters Degree, can we call you Master Gator?

Coming in late but I am awesomely impressed by your grades Craw.

I remember junior high (or should I say don't want to remember it).

Should we just call you The Master? (Dr Who reference there)
