"If your graduation year bothers you that much, take extra classes and go to school in the summer and you'll graduate at the magical age of 20 or 21 or whichever you feel is the magical age."
I'm finishing up my sophomore year, so it's too late for that.
"Getting a BA or BS is a great thing to do, regardless of age."
That's what I thought to. I used to think 'It doesn't matter that I'll be the oldest of the students getting their Bachelor's Degrees in 2017, but at least I'll have accomplished something that most people haven't'. I'm finding out thought that most people are getting Bachelor's Degrees.
"You're carrying a chip on your shoulder about having been left back a year and that happened a good decade and a half ago. That is an awfully long time to be pissed about that."
I wouldn't be pissed off about it if it weren't affecting the present, but it seems like, just how most of my peers got their high school diplomas a year before me, they will also get their Bachelor's Degrees a year before me.
