    I can't believe I only have two more weeks of classes before finals and graduation. I've wanted this degree for the past 10 years and I'm so glad I'm finally getting it :D. Then I can enjoy my lazy summer before the craziness begins...

    I received my financial aid package yesterday from K-State o_O this is really starting to sink in especially with the amount of loans I was offered! Has anyone else thought about the amount of loans they are going to take out for the first year?

    I need to cover about 10k according to the school. Debating whether I reeeally have to take that out (probably only a half but I'd really rather spare myself the loan ya know).

    But better to be comfy first year and adjust accordingly/give back what I don't use

    Yes, thankfully my husband should be earning enough to cover living expenses, but I'm wondering how much I should put toward tuition. I don't want to have nothing in the bank in case something happens, although financial aid would probably be better if I was more broke lol.

    I would suggest estimating your budget as best as you can and then going a little higher than you think you'll need because you never know what's going to come up. For me it made more sense to have extra to give back (even with the fee not being refunded) than to be in a situation where I needed to take out more partway through the semester. You can do the latter but I believe it takes some time.

    But I'm no financial guru, that's just what worked for me! After the first year you'll probably have a better idea of how much you'll need for subsequent years, though there will probably always be unexpected expenses.

    It's taking a lot of pep talking to get myself to finish this semester with my usual "oompf". Anyone else feeling this way? But when May 2nd comes, it'll be summer and this will be the first summer in four years I haven't taken any classes. Yiiippppeee!!

    I found that every class after I got accepted was just about impossible to get through/care about. I'm actually still fairly motivated for this semester, but I think it's because I put a ton of work on myself at the front end of the semester so I wouldn't have too much to worry about at the back end of the semester. It also helps that I took a big break this past week and a half to recharge.

    You've got one last push before you can take a nice relaxing summer though! I wish I was done on the 2nd, but I have another week after that and then I'm off scott free*!

    *for like two weeks before I'm sure I'll have something important I have to get to doing

    Wally's Ideal Summer:
    Start running again! Try to make my "dog yard" look more like a normal lawn. Set my spare bedroom up as an office. Play with my dogs. Drink mimosas and other tasty beverages. Get my wisdom teeth out (not ideal but has to happen). And like 10000000 other things. SUMMER!

    I also pushed really hard the beginning of the semester with the thought of thinking about needing to re-apply and keeping my last 36/45 high. Then, yeah, sorta lost the motivation. I'll end with 3 A's and one class that could be an A if I really give it my all, or a B if I keep down the path I'm going. Like this weekend, I did all the things except studying. Slept in, played with my dog, napped, watched Netflix. It was bad. One more push! We can doooo it!

    I'm feeling exactly the same way. Currently trying to finish making flashcards for a biochem exam on Tuesday followed by the exam on Thursday (she decided to change the exam date to five days earlier last minute...is this even legal? :yeahright:)

    I lost my motivation earlier in the semester than usual and it's been difficult to trudge through these last few weeks. I'll be working at the clinic this summer but I'm just happy to have no classes or GRE to study for this time around.

    Getting wisdom teeth out is gross, I'm sorry you have to do that. Maybe if you practice your running enough you'll be fast enough to run away from the dental surgeon though.

    For what it's worth, professors generally aren't allowed/supposed to change things around from how they were organized in the syllabus without giving you all a decent amount of notice. Not that this always happens, but it's supposed to help prevent the class from dealing with very last-minute changes unannounced.

    Ouch. I'm sorry your exam got moved up. I'm sure a lot of your were counting on those extra 5 days to prepare! Just think ... do the time now and then you can really feel good about relaxing this summer. Posting on here/saying it "out loud" helped me get back into the zone one more study sesh tonight.

    The professor had originally scheduled our exam for dead week. One of my classmates emailed her and told her we weren't allowed to have exams during dead week (not really sure about the accuracy of this statement either, though). Hence, the sudden change. It's just a big mess that I'm too lazy to do anything about. :p

    Except instead of champag-nee it's vodka. But if you want to really go low budget just grab a packet of emergen-C and add shmirnoff

    I just realized I used the wrong discreet in my original post. Dang statistics.

    And like I said, more discreet. Fewer people will hear you open a bottle of vodka as opposed to a bottle of champagne ;)

    It's less classy, but also it's supposed to be.

    I also completely feel the same way you do. I have a biochem test tomorrow and at this point I'm just trying to pass. I have an irrational fear that my acceptance will be revoked because I might make a C in the class, even though the letter says as long as you don't fail any classes you're good :arghh:
