    I've got another 2 years until I graduate, I'm sure it'll fly by though!

    Congrats and I hope everything goes well tomorrow though. I'll have the same height/gown related worries as you when my turn comes!

    Not till next year, but I saw my friend graduate on the internet today

    Could you not just tack it up a couple of turns?

    I'm graduating tomorrow as well. I think the biggest worry for most people is the thought of tripping on their robes. I've sat through 3 graduation ceremonies so far and haven't seen it happen so hopefully it'll be all okay, although having said that I tripped on my wedding dress twice when I was walking down the aisle!

    Are gowns "one-size-fits-all"?

    I graduate on the 21st. I don't really know what to expect. I know that I have to bow. Has anyone noticed that bowing is actually quite difficult to get right? I've been practicing in the vein or Mr Bean.
