Undergraduate Transcript, Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville
The date of matriculation to the date of having earned sufficient credits
to fulfill graduation was two years. The graduation date was much later because
graduation were held once a year in May/June.
The failure to replaced the burned transcript
with a new one reflects a focus on substance not symbols as shown by a failure
to attend any college graduation.
The period in which I ace'd 24 hours was my second, Winter 1971.
Despite two years in the military after high school, I completed my undergraduate
requirements at approximately the same time or sooner as those who went directly
into college from high school. I attended graduate school with some fellow
high school students.
I ascribe my college performance to several things, especially when contrasted
with my middling high school achievements, #196 out of 376.
I had seen life without an education, noting the difference between those
with and without a college education.

ivy-league gas-guzzlers than mom-and-pop high mpg colleges. When one
