Summer reading progress:

One book down, out of... uh... *counts* counting only actual books, eight to go. Four of them more-than-three-day-reads. Grrghmmmrphle. >.<

Still need to buy... three books. Library had most of them but on four-hour reserve. Which is so terribly *useful* I don't even know how to express it. Four if I bother with the itty-bitty three-dollar re-compilation of stories I already own and have read. Probably going to have to wait 'til I have, y'know, money. ;)

(On which subject, I forgot to call the BCSAP people about the forms that haven't shown up yet. They remember to send the form I don't actually need, if at all, until January, but not the one I need to run under the nose of somebody important September sixth on the dot if I'm to, like, pay things. Idiots. And now I can't call them 'til Monday. Argh.)

Damnit, getting through them, though, at least a good chunk of them. Need ass-kicking grades next semester. In theory, anyway.

To digress, Summer Writing Progress: uh, zip, nada, zero, naught (and here I would add "bupkis" if I were sure how it were spelt and weren't too lazy to look it up). Which is, actually, bad beyond it making me feel guilty and useless as it impacts directly on any potential post-graduate plans, which is the main reason for my wanting to get through the reading before Fall starts, after all. *headdesk*

To digress further: shoebox_project updated! And. Uh. Guh. Heee! *squee* Just ask mik100 about the voicemail I left her. *big nerdy grin of glee*

*blinks at TV* I think I find Washington occasionally depressing. At least if the dental commercials we get up here from them are any indication. *cringes*

Anyway. Here's hoping I sleep through the whole bloody night this time.

I looked around the transfer guide. If all my classes from UNBC, VCC, UQTR all transfer for three credits a class I think I might be standing at sixty something credits. Only thing is that I'm getting confused when I work it out. Maybe you can help me out. I also am not sure how I can transfer the credits from a Quebec university to a British Columbia one. I know it is capable but I am confused yet again.

Re: help!
Okay, well, first off they only let you transfer sixty credits into a degree program from another school... so depending on what program you enter to finish your BA (as you need a BA to enter PDP), you'll want to only submit for evaluation those classes that most apply and in which, I'd think, you got the best grades. :) For out-of-province there's a whole other set of protocols... but chances are that if the class is a relatively commonplace one (meaning, not too terribly obscure), and SFU has an equivalent/similar course, they'll take the grade and credit you for their similar course. But, yeah. You're going to have to do some picking and choosing, if you've got that many credits. Really, you apply, and they look at everything, and take what they'll take. Mostly this involves a lot of requesting and submitting and re-submitting of various pieces of paper, that takes a while, but you've got time, haven't you? :)

Re: help!
Anyway, if you want other help, I'd probably actually have to *see* all these bloody transcripts. :D

I guess I should set up a meeting with an academic advisor and see what comes out of it. That and I should be able to check out what are the details for PDP and such. Maybe even some current affairs.

Probably wise, the appointment, I mean. It's a lot easier to go "what the hell does this mean?" when you can point at something and they can see what you're pointing at. ;)

Anyway... PDP's really pretty simple, requirement-wise, anyway. Basically, you need a BA, at least if you plan to teach anything that includes anything at the secondary level (which I think your intentions did - grades 6-8, right?). The up-to-date page is here, and is pretty complete/detailed.

In any case, if you want to talk to an advisor I'd make an appointment *now*, because Fall semester starts pretty bloody soon so equally bloody soon it will be virtually impossible to get an avising appointment - and any you make now will quite likely be for September.
