1) Thank you for the kind words Randy - but just saying I've been stressed would have been enough. No need to post my LJ link to the world...
Sorry.

During my time as an undergrad (1989), my section chair (Section 63) dealt with four extension efforts at once (I think only 3 of them were PGs at the same time.) along with 12 chapters. I think they fitted him with an "I love me" jacket at the end of his term.

At least it's a "wait" rather than the "no way in 4{!!" like at Harvard.

Particularly if nearly all the other schools in DC have a chapter active - it'll make it even easier to approach Gally in the future. Patience is a virtue - and sometimes, extension is knowing when to strike where!

The amazing thing is that UDC will take us to more than half of the Consortium of Universities of the Washington DC area. "http://www.consortium.org/members.asp. Of the 15 members of the Corsortium, we have chapters at 7: American, Catholic, G'town, Mason, GW, Howard and Maryland-College Park, extension at UDC, and nothing at 7:Corcoran College (Very unlikely), Gallaudet(Discussed above), Marymount (Reasonable), Nat. Defense Intel College (No way), National Defense U.(No how), Southeastern (sort of like UDC) and Trinity (Reasonable).

And things like translating the Toast Song et al can't hurt as preparation regardless of when it goes forward, right?

Randy,
I'll PM you with my replies to your post. Right now, my hands are a bit tired and a migraine is setting in.

And Jamie, I completely see where you and National are coming from re:Gally. If you can tell me, I'd like to know who you spoke to at the school who expressed disinterest in rechartering. There are two people in the Student Activities Office who are notorious for giving a "thumbs down" to any organization that isn't "Deaf" in its origins. (Again, speaking from first hand experience dealing with both of them)

I'll put the issue to rest for now, as I'm sure people who have been following (or at least trying to) are eye weary by now.

BUT, I'm still more than willing to work on a pure ASL version of the Toast Song. As for Stokoe notation, it's not considered a written form of ASL by the Deaf community. Why, I can't answer....it's also a PITA to learn!!!

No problem. I think once the Stokoe Notation came up, it had passed beyond general discussion on Greek Chat.
