AMAZING GRACE!


My friends you will never believe what I, not highly intelligent Virginia Gal have managed to do....(wait for it).......get an, "A" in Business Statistics!!!

Yes, you heard correctly, I (pause) I got an, "A!" Truly it is a Christmas miracle! Somehow (I think mostly due to the kind nature of my professor) I made a "B" on the final, coupled with my "A" average on quizes and working with a statistical genius on the final project to get an "A" (hey a smart businesswoman knows to surround herself with the best, if she herself can't do it). It all worked out to an, "A"!!!

To top that off - I got all, "A's" - in every other class - can you believe it?! I keep checking my transcript, afraid it will all disappear before me. Its amazing though how much it has already affected how I feel - suddenly I am much more confident. I deserve to here on campus, in the B-school, I am worthy. I suppose I shouldn't tie my self-worth to my grades, but what are you going to do? Its a bit of a vindication from all those schools and books that said how well you did on your standarized GMAT score dictated how well you did in B-school. Well if that was true, I should have done much worse. But who cares - all A's baby!!!!

I feel like I should have a speech prepared, like an Oscar winner (hee hee). This is momentous! Wow, I'm going to have to really thank God and not just lip service like all those lame-y's on the Grammys do. Thanks to everyone for their support - you all rock!!
