i have to say enjoy college while you still can..

i really wish i did more of that. but anyways.

most dental schools won't complain if you won't get alot below a B...

so keep them at Bs and you will be okay i would say.

hey cornball, are you from oc? (714) i know what you mean about senioritis after acceptance. it's getting to the point where i can't even focus on my other interviews. i have one at ucla tomorrow morning and now i'm just barely starting my preparation. doh! i smell disaster and yet i'm so chill.

on the grade issue, i don't know how it is for the school(s) that you have gotten acceptance to, but at Upenn, anything below a "C" is unacceptable. so technically a C is ok. long live senioritis!!! :laugh: :laugh:

Wait until you start dental school--it's like 4 straight years of senioritis.

it's like a senioritis epidemic... haha. I cut back on my spring quarter classload (all humanities!), so I just have to make it through these next couple weeks, and then I'm set.

Did the same thing, and I'm still messing up... I had a music quiz today that was crazy easy, and I knew all the answers, but my brain seemed to misinterpret everything - like the question was, "what's the Italian word for as loud as possible?" and i read, "as fast as possible".... so I did really badly. I can't figure out if that's just senioritis or my brain's really going batty, just in time for d-school... party. I WANT OUT!! argh!

why is human nature so strange?? currently i am working at a research job and doing some off the wall projects for a professor at the dental school. yet i long for being in school. I miss the studying, miss the interaction with people my age and miss going out. Now if I was in school I would be wishing that I was done with school and that I was working or something.

Can we ever be happy?? Can we ever be satisfied??

"I just can't get any satisfaction" - rolling stones.

if this is an epidemic then i've got the bug. i am so freakin lazy this semester even after i specifically tell myself okay, youre going to study now. always end up going to movies, watching tv, drinking, going to the store, and/or going online instead. i just hope i can manage to keep B's this semester so they don't boot me from d school.

I was thinking of starting a thread like this...good to know I"m not alone. It's all I can do to get to class. And getting there ontime? Well that's just about out of the question. I used to be able to pull allnighters and allweekenders...puh-lease. This week ain't looking much better... Really gonna have to work on this...

After having to pull a whole weekend learning Gross Anatomy ... I've developed week-itis. My weekend just started today. It's not going to be a very productive week.

I need out of undergrad!!!

I haven't ever slept through so many classes. Given the choice between going to a Cell Biology class or watching an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.... well, it really isn't a hard choice.

I am beginning to worry that I might forget how to apply myself once I get to dental school... ;)

I am in the same boat!!! I have a quick question...ignoring the grade factor. What about dropping a class. I took more classes than I needed to graduate, so I could drop some and still graduate as planned. Does it matter if you drop? Is it better or worse to have a "B" or a "W".

Yes. I choose Cell Biology with Dr. White any day over DSN.

LOL. Now, that's whay I called senioritis.

By the way, when you match for specialities, will they see any of the undergrad grades? So if I "senioritis" my way to a 3.0 this semester, would it cause matching problems in the future, say if I want to be a pedodontist?

Any suggestions on how to SNAP OUT OF IT????????????

I am trying to study right now, and yet I am posting to figure out what is better a "non-A" or a "W". How is that for determination :)

I would think a "non-A" is better than a "W" . I have plenty of B's in my record and the adcom didn't mind so much as a W. My interviewer actually asked why I got one W in my transcript. yikes. but luckily he was joking.

I highly doubt anyone will get booted for getting C's - I would imagine they don't want to make that much more work for themselves by filling ten more seats because of all of us on this thread!

I'm justifying my lack of effort by saying I'm giving back to the classes I'm in - it's like this: I worked my arsch off to gett A's, A-'s, and B+'s in Chem and biology. If I ever got below the class average on a test I was pissed. Now I'm consistantly just below the class average in Biochem and physics and thereby bringing it down and helping others feel good about beating the class average! A lot of my classmates are still trying to get into med/dent school so why should I make them look worse just for kicks? Does this logic work?

It totally works - so when I get a D in tennis because I can't hit anything smaller than a battleship, I'm doing it to make everyone else look good... :laugh:

I'm just sitting here in physics class, posting on SDN instead of learning about the fascinating interactions of electric and magnetic fields and the forces thereof... I think this senior's head is so inflammed that it cannot bear to absorb another bit of data. It's senioritis alright :thumbup:

This thread is horrible :oops: (kidding). Now I know im not the only one feeling senioritis... Seriously, my letter said, you have to keep same level of performance, doesnt that mean you have to have the same grades?

If your cum gpa drops a couple points... what will they do? will they let it slide?

I'm not in the same hell hole as I was in Jan waiting for acceptances but still don't know why I get into this.

Maybe I just don't care anymore or have watched "Office Space" one too many times.

hey no prob, it took me a while to figure it out myself. if a thread goes a while with no responses it gets lost in the endless caverns of SDN and you can post on it to bring it back to the top and it gets more attention. This is a bump :thumbup:
