I finished my last bit of testing this morning. Whew! Now I'll have time to get caught up on all your blogs and lives.
Here are the results...
I tested out of the English requirement. I "think" I have to pay for the credits to get them, but it was a hundred degrees in and out of the building, and the heat might have gone to my head. Or maybe it was just relief. I'll find out.
I scored high on the "arithmetic" portion. Woohoo.
I completely tanked on the Algebra in my Accuplacer.
I HAVE TO TAKE PRE-ALGEBRA! Gak!
I don't understand it. I took Algebra in high school and again in college. I didn't LIKE it, but I did well.
I won't be 40 for another 6 months. Early dementia? CRS? I sat in front of the test and it was like Greek. I didn't remember a freaking thing.
I'm hoping that in the first couple of classes it will all come back to me and maybe I can test out this too.
Yesterday I called the MAIN campus admissions office to complain about my name/address stuff. They said that the clerk was wrong, all I have to provide is a driver's license and to fill out the change of address form. I did that today.
But--my credits are still gone with the wind. The person I talked to pointed out that most colleges only honor them for 10 years. Like that would make me feel better. ha ha
In today's market-driven climate, I think community colleges should go through their books and send out ads. "It's almost 15 years! If you don't take a class today, you'll lose everything forever!"
I know, wishful thinking!
Plus, they'd probably send my notice to my ex-father-in-law's house (my--koff-permanant address!) and I'd never see it!
Thanks again everybody for all your support.
You guys are the greatest!
