My cousin read this to me in the car, then paused for a second, then said, "Um...doesn't that seem like a pretty low number of graduates for that big of a school?" In other words, any recent five-year span of students pretty much equaled the number of people of reasonable age who had graduated. We were a little more baffled as to why they chose to advertise this
I mean, I don't think a school HAS to say how many living graduates it has.
So you're definitely deserving of congratulations. But isn't OU's journalism school one of the best around? Hopefully that program turns out a fair amount of graduates.
My father was a graduate... I was even born there.
As a student I lasted 10 weeks there and then fled like a Parisian in 1940.
