i was put on furlough due to covid and i used this time to finally finish my high school diploma which i've been ignoring for three years.
i'm 21F and throughout high school i had pretty bad anxiety and depression. i was also distracted by a really unhealthy relationship and didn't take myself or my education seriously. i basically stopped going to school my senior year and i failed. i've been signed up with an adult learning program in my city since 2017 to help me finish. but between working full time and getting mental health support - my education fell through the cracks.
i feel so free now. i didn't realize how much this affected me. there's nothing weighing me down anymore! i'm kinda mad at myself for taking this long to complete it but now i have a huge appetite for motivation and getting shit done.
i also hid this from my family and friends so i can't really outwardly celebrate it. but i don't care i'm going to bake myself something nice, have a beer and post about it int... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm a high school senior who's obviously graduating this year.
My high school has decided to have multiple mandatory days where you have to get your cap and gown, go to a virtual graduation, "drive through" graduation, then an actual ceremony late July/early August if all this bullshit is over with.
Just let us fucking graduate and get on with our lives, ffs.
I'm working full time as an essential worker. Taking time out of my work schedule (which is helping me work towards my future goals much more than any stupid ceremony is) to drive my car across a field with a few teachers waving at me is the biggest fucking waste of time there is.
We have other priorities. School events are NOT one of them. I'm worried about making money. I'm worried about my health. I'm worried about pending legal issues and a court date that's coming up.
I do not give a fuck about school any more. I'm going to pass my two classes and graduate with no problem. I just want that to be the extent of it. Any... keep reading on reddit ➡
I thought my opinions was popular, but surveys and research show otherwise. It’s not the 70s anymore. A high school diploma won’t get you a good-paying job like it used to. Yes, some people are in the minority of only having a high school diploma and making a good amount of money. But they’re in the minority. Remember that. Remember that the minority most definitely doesn’t say what’ll be like for everyone. College graduates earn 15k more on average than only high school graduates. Look it up. 30k isn’t a big income anymore. You need to worry about paying for basic necessities and if you live in America, that includes healthcare. Why do you think the overwhelming majority of those in poverty don’t have a college degree and the overwhelming majority of college graduates are not living in poverty?
Edit: Yes, there are successful people out there without high school degrees but they are in an even smaller minority than those with just high school degrees.
Edit #2: Those with only a high... keep reading on reddit ➡
Has anyone heard any updates about when the diplomas will start being mailed? I desperately need a copy of mine for my employment and I have no idea how much longer I have to wait... Can we request an image of the diploma or something???
EDIT: Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! I've got my transcript and my employer is fine with that rn; the problem is I also need to get work authorization from the USCIS and they won't accept anything short of the actual diploma. The commencement office says they don't have any digital copies and they have to wait for the reopening timeline from the university. But no one seems to have a clue when that's gonna happen.. in short, no solutions so far.
Idk I just want to share this because it made me really happy. Most of the papers I got at my graduation had my correct name on them even though it isn’t legally changed yet. There was one thing that had my birth name on it though (which is similar to my real name) and the principal, not knowing I was trans, said “sorry your name is misspelled on that one son.” So yeah, I’m feeling really good.
I am thousands of dollars in debt to OSUMC and I am slated to graduate in December. I will not be able to pay that kind of bill by that time -- is there anyway OSU could withhold my diploma for this?
But like always all I want and think about is that I want someone in my life. Maybe one day...
This pandemic has got me thinking that I may need to leave my current position. I am currently an ECE (2 year college diploma) working in a preschool program in Canada. I love the kids, but I am really struggling with the level of disrespect shown to me by my boss, my government, and even those around me (suggesting I become a “real” teacher, etc.) What else can I do with my diploma? Has anyone made (or known anyone) who has switched to a different type of position in the field or otherwise? Thanks!!
Lisa Kumfer is a graduate of University of Wisconsin Law School.
The University of Wisconsin Law School is one of only two law schools in the United States whose graduates enjoy diploma privilege as a method of admission to the bar. Unlike all other jurisdictions in the United States, Wisconsin's state bar allows graduates of accredited law schools within the state to join the bar without taking the state's bar examination if they complete certain requirements in their law school courses and achieve a certain level of performance in those courses. The other school with this privilege is the Marquette University Law School.
I'm anticipating KZ's response to this filing. The numerous misrepresentations of facts and law compare to the way LE and Kratz mismanaged this case from the very beginning.
There was a lab job I applied for that only required a high school diploma and practically no experience was required. Being that I have a bachelor's degree and some lab experience, I figured I might have a shot. Turns out my application was about as worthless as a used candy wrapper.
I was sent a rejection email within a few days saying how I wasn't a "good fit" and how they decided to move on with another candidate (probably the hiring manager's friend/family member). I feel like absolute garbage right now. Even jobs with the most basic requirements don't want anything to do with me. I keep getting told to stay positive and keep tricking through, but how am I supposed to keep going when I have all of these rejections and failures punching me in the stomach and kicking me while I'm down.
I hate job hunting so much. The whole process is stupid and I wish it wouldn't be so stressful. I feel incredibly pathetic and I don't know what to do about it.
We are Latino which means we have two last names and a first and middle name, they didn’t put his middle name on the diploma and they put an o in one of his name and it was supposed to by an a
Id choose 6’3 ngl. If you are shorter than 5’4 already just consider loosing 2-3 inches for the purpose of the question.
An unexpected, but heartwarming way to end high school.
Hello! I am just wondering if anyone else who graduated this spring has heard anything about getting their diplomas in the mail? The last email I got about it said: “Your honor braid will be mailed to you along with your diploma and commencement bulletin when the university is able to complete such mailings in May.” Has anyone gotten their diploma yet? Or gotten an email saying their diploma was being shipped to them? Thanks in advance for the help!
Who else got the email today about getting our diploma as a PDF for $10... when is the stupidity going to end?! You already charged 40 for the physical one NAU, just fucking send the digital version it doesn’t cost you $10 to do that for us!😤
It’d taken decades for me to find it since my abusive mother hid it and told me I’d flunked out.
I currently have tears running down my face. I literally cannot stop crying. I graduated high school. I fucking did it, guys I DID IT. I lived long enough to make it through high school. I struggled so hard and for so long and i finally made it
How to improve conceptual knowledge ? How to study core subjects and improve problem solving skills? Not for the sake of passing exams...just want to learn look at different perspective as far as Chemical Engineering is concerned
Só quero agregar um status no currículo sem pagar caro.
so for obvious reasons, there was no graduation ceremony, and Ive known that i had graduated for a while, but it just came in the mail today!
I’ve quit my job due to stress and a ton of panic attacks... is there a way i can make some steady income every week from home? I’m too worried about going outside right now due to everything going on so i don’t think a job will work out for me at the moment... and plus i don’t have a car. what can i do? I’m 23 and pretty stuck with everything right now in life.
I have a GED and I'm looking to become a AV. I saw on the Navy website that AE requires a High School Diploma but [AT] (https://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/enlisted/community/aviation/Pages/AT.aspx) doesn't. Will that cross out the entire AV rate for me or will I just only be able to do the AT rates?
Is this just a typo or something? If it's not, from what I know you could be a nuke with a GED if you test well and get a waiver so just wondering what's the deal.
Hatezer-kettőszázhuszonnégy diploma kiadását igényelték a Miskolci Egyetemtől azok, akik nem rendelkeznek nyelvvizsgával. Közülük legtöbben a Gazdaságtudományi Karon végeztek. Mint az ismeretes, a kormány lehetővé tette a diplomájuk kézhez vételét azoknak a felsőoktatást végzett hallgatóknak, akik nem tették le az elvárt nyelvvizsgát. A Bölcsészettudományi Karon végzettek száma ezeregyszázharminckettő, a Gépészmérnöki és Informatikai Kart teljesítőké ezerhét. Őket követik az Állam- és Jogtudományi Karra járók nyolcszázhatvannégyen, majd a Műszaki Földtudományi Kar volt hallgatói ötszázharmincheten. A Műszaki Anyagtudományi Kar háromszázhegyvenkettő volt hallgatója kérte ki diplomáját, míg az Egészségügyi Karról háromszázkilencen, a Bartók Béla Zeneművészeti Intézetből pedig százhuszonnyolcan. Végül a korábban a Miskolci Egyetemhez tartozó sárospataki Comenius Főiskolai Karról kettőszázhuszonegyen igényelték oklevelüket.
I got into both the OMSCyberSec - Policy and Virginia Tech's Master of IT program.
I was originally leaning heavily towards VT because of how technical and flexible the program is, I did a lot of research, talked to alumnis, looked at syllabi and you definitely learn a lot of hands on technical and relevant modern topics for both security, data/ML, java and python, and database/cloud stuff, which I think will make me solid all around with actual technical skills.
However, I also just got into this program for the policy track, and since it is a third of the price, I am strongly considering it, although I am worried since it is obviously not really technical at all based on the descriptions and what I'm reading on here.
does anyone know if it even mentions what track you choose on the diploma? ie when I put it on my resume and whatnot, I won't necessarily have to list "policy track" correct?
for those currently in it, would you say it is technical at all? or learn a

I am interested in everyone’s opinions and hope you will share with me your personal favourites of this wonderful genre. I would be grateful if you could answer these quick questions. Thank you very much for your help!!! :)
Q1. What is/are your favourite anime opening/openings?
Q2. How old were you when you first discovered anime?
Q3. What is your favourite artist whose composition was in an anime opening?
Q4. Do you listen to openings outside of watching the show?
Q5. What streaming service do you listen to them on if you do? E.g. YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music or download.
That’s it from me, thanks for your help! I look forward to reading your replies :)
UofT seems to put so much emphasis on your ability to take up to 3 programs in any various major/minor combinations or for eng to take these specialty focus areas but then come convocation all we get is the bland honors bachelors.
It’d be nice if we could get our diplomas to say our program names especially when you spend a fair amount of effort getting program combos that sound good lol
Just curious. Mine said it mailed last Monday but I still haven’t got it

Hey yall. Curious lang! Sa mga nag aral ng diploma programs sa UPD how was it? Usually ano po yung class schedule? Was it like masters na weekends or evening or may daytime din? Strict po ba admissions?
Lastly, kasali ba sa graduation mga nakaka tapos ng diploma programs (post-baccalaureate)?
Sorry madaming tanong, idk anyone who studied in UPD na diploma program 😁
I received my Notice of Graduation email on May 27th. I believe the diplomas are meant to be sent out two weeks later, yet I haven't gotten mine yet. Posting to see if anyone has gotten theirs yet.
Title says it all. Will paper version (free) that school mails out suffice? Or should I pony up for the electronic diploma
And when will I use it? Applying for jobs? Physician loans?
It's something I've wanted to do ever since I was a teenager.
