Re: THE Thread

Got my diploma in the mail yesterday. So happy that it says "Cum Laude" on it I thought I didn't make the cut as the school didn't invite me to the latin honors ceremony. I just can't believe that I graduated cum laude, but it says so on my dimploma. It might be a mistake

Congratulations!

What exactly is "Cum Laude"? (I know I could Google it, but why not make you explain it? )

Thanks

Cum Laude is Latin for "with honor." It's the lowest threshold for getting an honors conferral in college. The college/university may have English honors, but Latin honors is considered more prestigious. For example, I completed my university's honors program, and they gave a separate certificate for it and my transcript would also reflect that, but if I hadn't gotten a Latin honors distinction it would be less prestigious. The diploma only shows Latin honors and not the other honors. On the graduation day, they announce the Latin honors and not the English honors. On the school year book, they also put stars next to the names of students who graduated with Latin honors. So if you have one star next to your name, you graduated "cum laude." If you have two stars, it means you graduated "magna cum laude," which means "with great honor." If you have three stars, it means you graduated "summa cum laude," which means "with highest honor." And you also get to wear special cords on graduation day, and they also have a special ceremony for latin honors students.

Funnily though, my name has no star next to it in the year book, and I wasn't invited to the Latin honors ceremony, and I only wore the cord for the English/university honors. I had already cried over it, and got over the disappointment of not getting Latin honors So imagine my surprise, when my diploma said "cum laude."

Oh as far as how they calculate the Latin honors, every university has different rules and criteria. For my university top 2% of class is "summa cum laude," top 5% is "magna cum laude," and top 9% is "cum laude." So for me it means that I was among the top 9% of my class.

A broken alarm is not fun either Do you happen to know of any program that will post on your behalf at a certain time? I just want to make sure this doesn't happen again.

Definitely sounds like no fun

No idea. Talk to Marv, he's the computer expert. Myself I have an old-fashioned clock radio with alarm and supply with an alarm function on my mobile phone. And I always wake up before the alarm rings. Didn't when I was your age, though.

I used my phone alarm all through the school year without fault, and I used it every day of the tournament prior to today without fault. Slash isn't around, I don't think. I'll just Google it

Yeah, Google is your friend

Strange thing, though, if anyone had told me when I was a teen that I'd end up waking before my alarm goes off 365 days a year....wouldn't have rung true, I can tell you that.

I found a program, will do a test once I figure out how it works

Yeah, I think past teen/young adult years people tend to wake up earlier and earlier

Sounds good.

You know, I had a feeling today one of our opponents wouldn't send for TT Hamburg. Why? Well, the same one didn't send for DTT Hamburg.....ofc, OOP was out earlier for TT, so it was no certainty. But the way our tournament has gone.....
