    Usually it is the friday of the first week of school (1/16/09). If they don't wanna come all the way down here, they usually mediasite it so your parents (and whoever else) can watch it from anywhere in the states.

    lol ask your parents to give you the $2000 instead of flying there, tell em they'll be better people for helping your future more than them sitting in some audience heh

    I always try to save as much money as possible, never ask my parents to fly anywhere with me.
    Then I use the money to buy video games

    The white coat ceremony is not anything impressive to warrant family to fly over and witness. However if they are headed down there to see the island for a few days and will be there during the same time as the ceremony, then that would make more sense for them to attend. It isn't cheap flying to DOM.

    I haven't been through it yet (I start in May 09), but I doubt it's worth your parents attending.

    I found some Youtube videos from May 06:

    Don't waste your money. It's such a waste of time. Really. Graduation will be worth the money.
