Since early 2008 I've been working with the goal to get into Valdosta State University's Library Science graduate program. I found out today from one of the professors I've been recommended for acceptance. All of my hard work on this History degree (my second undergrad degree) has really paid off in spades. Seriously, I was a C student at best before (GPA near 2.0) and with history I'm a mostly A with a few B's student. I've pulled my overall GPA up over 3.0 and my History GPA is going to finish ~3.6. Oh and I also got invited into the history honors society Phi Alpha Theta which I would have never believed I could do ever. I know this sounds a bit like gloating but I'm kinda at a loss for words to describe how I feel right now.

Glad you're getting more out of your history degree than I am. I just couldn't stand the thought of any more school, so post grad stuff is not gonna happen for me.

Congrats on meeting your goals, and it's impressive that you've stepped up your GPA so much.

The only thing you can do is get a librarian job somewhere. I'm open to anywhere really. I'd prefer south Florida and if not there, just give me a major city. I'd really like to be an archivist somewhere but we'll see.

your determination to raise your GPA is commendable. Finding in yourself the ability to work harder is really the most valuable thing you have actually acquired.

Congrats! Its always nice to see hard work paying off.

I must say though, I NEVER would have thought that becoming a Librarian would require so much work and education.

Great fucking news! Even if it sounds like you're gloating, do it. Pat yourself on the back, you've earned it.

Does that recommendation automatically translate into acceptance?

Pretty much. The website should be updated next week and I should get the official letter within another.

I thought the same thing, but after discussing it with him once it's my understanding that Sandman is actually training to be some kind of hardcore elite special forces librarian.

Or more accurately, Libratorr.
