would you wait for a few month to go to the May commencement or would you go to the December commencement? I think May commencement is much bigger than the December commencement.

    I would go to the one in May with all the others in your graduating class.

    I have been to both commencements. The fall commencement is definitely smaller. I definitely think I saw people who had graduated in the fall at my graduation (spring graduation). I have no clue what the rules on this are, but it's not like they check that you're graduating that semester when you walk into BKS on graduation day, so if you're in a Carolina Blue cap and gown, you'll be good to go!

    there is one problem though.... if you graduate in december, and go to the May commencement, you will have to spend the extra money and time to make the trip back to Chapel Hill.....
