May I add a bit of levity (please!) to the degreed vs
non-degreed debate and discussions of that much-maligned and
much-coveted sheepskin? Through a bungle in the registrar's
office at my very fine college, the diploma handed to me upon
commencement was BLANK. That's right, a blank piece of paper (my
bankrupt parents almost dropped dead on the spot). Believe it or
not, it took almost 4 yrs of wrangling with and threatening the
registrar's office to get a real, live printed diploma, and when
I did, the graduation date was wrong! I've since *lost* the
thing, believe it or not. And you know what? I've never missed
