Taking my Comprehensive Exam at UWA
« on: April 27, 2007, 09:14:15 AM »
Well, I am off in a little bit to take my comps.

I had to find a monitor and the principal of the local Catholic school agreed to do it for me. She isn't even charging me anything, except to pray for the school.

I am a little nervous as the test will cover courses I took nearly two years ago.  But if I pass this, I am in the middle of my final class and will graduate late next month.  Thats cool.

I hope to do some adjunct teaching for a little while.

So pray for me to remember my studies well.  I don't expect to blow the doors off this thing, but I would love to just squeak by, if you know what I mean.

Outstanding Clint!  Exactly what will your degree be in?  After what I've experienced in a doctoral program, I would advise you to stop now while you're ahead. The process is ugly, brutal and hard! :eek:

My current degree is a MAT (master of arts in teaching) with an emphasis in English.  It basically qualifies me to teach junior college.

At present, I have no desire to go for a PhD.  Maybe someday...

Well, I am still awaiting the results of the exam and have to finish the final course (which I am currently taking) before I graduate. Should be late May when that happens.

it is at UWA.

Oh ya, I'm sure Clint did well on his comps.  He's one of those smart people.

Hello Clint,

I pray you did well...  Please what is the name of the Catholic school and the Principle so I may say a prayer with you for them...

The school is Sacred Heart Catholic School in Danville, VA.  The Principal's name is Kimberly Meadows.  She was absolutely wonderful throughout the who process.  UWA was a bit unorganized regarding the administration of the test, but she actually went the extra mile making sure everything was taken care of.  I usually try to make sure everything gets done, but due to the nature of administering the test, there were some things that I simply couldn't do as the student and she did it, even though she has plenty of her own responsibilities at the school.  I certainly appreciated it.

BTW, I forgot to post this earlier, but I did pass my Comps.  Also, I completed my final course with an "A" so I should have all my requirements for my Masters.  I haven't gotten the official word, but all should be in order.
