    Wow, if you guys don't like finals how are you going to handle dental school? As for myself I love finals week. Nothing like going on two hours of sleep and having to drink energy drinks just to stay awake. I love craming useless info that I'll never need to know. You guys are wierd.

    Let me play devil's advocate here. :cool:

    Everything we are going to learn in dental school we will need to know. So it's not analagous to my Stats and Russian finals. Going to dental school is not about skimming by and cramming to only forget the material the next morning, and if you think your attitude will pass in dental school then you are the one in for the big surprise.

    I have one tomorrow and one on Monday and I will be done. I have been off from classes since Monday and have studied like 5 hours total in 4 days. I just can't make myself study for this useless $hit now. I mean Ecology, why in the hell am I taking that class in frist place.

    I guess I learned my lesson. :oops: Good luck with your Stats and Russian finals. I have stats next semester, not looking forward to that! I know that all I need is a C but I know there is no way I'll be able to let myself not obsess over grades. I guess it's a blessing and a curse.

    Ya, that's actually exactly what everyone has told me. I made sure I looked at the proffesor reviews before I signed up. :thumbup:

    You know what else I hate about finals? Waiting to find out how you did and what your final grade is. During the semester it usually takes the proffesor a week at most before they have the exams graded and back to you. But with finals they really take thier sweet a$$ time! At my school they don't have to post grades online untill the 28th! I check like every hour to see if any of them have posted grades and when they havn't I feel like ... +pissed+ (actually it dosen't really piss me off that bad, I just have been looking for an excuse to use that icon)

    At my school the Grades are due within the 72 hours after the final exams are over but the last day of the exams I think is 23rd. My exams willl be over earlier but I wouldn't know my grade. It Sucks big time.

    I think you'll be surprised at just how much of that you end up doing. Not everything you're taught in dental school is important, a lot of what you aren't taught *is* important, and there's no shortage of memorize-regurgitate-purge-repeat happening either.

    I agree. From what I have heard you still learn alot of information that will never directly relate to being a professional dentist. Plus the work load that we will have in D school will not allow for staying ahead of all the classes. Craming might just have to happen sometimes.

    By the way I finished my last final on friday. 4.0 baby. And I have already been snow-boarding twice and plan to go three more time this week. Let it snow,let it snow,let it snow. :laugh: :thumbup: :laugh:
