So tomorrow afternoon, I get to participate in one of the Music Department's great traditions. It's an end-of-year progress review traditionally done with each student meeting for fifteen or twenty minutes with two professors. Mine is with my advisor and (maybe, he might not make it) the department chair.
As a side note, I am female, and both of these professors are male. In light of this and the fact that La Dissertation focuses on gender issues, I have to giggle that the Music Department refers to these as "2-on-1 meetings." It sounds . . . vaguely scandalous, I think.
