On Friday I turned in the two final copies of my Masters’ Thesis along with a Certificate of Acceptability to complete all the academic requirements for my Masters’ of Music in Composition from McGill University. Now all I have to do is wait until Febuary 14th for the degree to be official and June 1st for my convocation. For the moment though the McGill office of Graduate and Post-Graduate Studies gave me a pen with the word “Success” cheesily written on it.
What a relief! Now I feel ready to hear back from doctoral programs and can more fully concentrate on what I need to do most — compose.
