Stupid UWO Strikes Again  

So I don't think a semester has gone by without the university screwing something up, or otherwise making my life 1000% more difficult. It's their specialty.

But this one really pisses me off. Because it punishes indecision, taking time to figure yourself out, and failures outside of your control.

I don't know if they have this at other universities, but we have one of many statuses controlling what we can do or get called SAP - Satisfactory Academic Progress. You can't get financial aid if you don't meet the criteria, one of which is having more than 180 credits. Which they say I do, even though my grade report says I have 129.

In the FAQ, it says they count dropped classes in their total, but there is no way of knowing how many there are unless you keep track. I didn't know I needed to. And whqt a shitty system - all the classes i dropped, with rare exception, I dropped before the semester even started. I shouldn't be penalized for that! What the shit, UWO?!?!?

I have an email sent to my advisor asking what the hell I should do now, and she's looking into it (she's new and I honestly feel bad about burdening her with difficult questions), but god damn it.

This process also made me realize that I could graduate in August if I take a summer class, but I had to apply for graduation last semester. Which I obviously didn't.

SIGH. I'm just so sick of this shit. I really am.

And now I really need to amp up the GRE practice and the grad applications, because I might be done half a year early.
