You want to hear a funny story? I'm on the quarter system and last quarter, I ended up with a 2.8 GPA (2 B minuses and a B). The funny part is that I got those grades before I had an acceptance from UCSD. Had I been placed on the waitlist, I probably would have been screwed. Is that a bad case of senioritis or what?

I think C's are about as low as you can go without running a risk of something bad happening. Why push it though? You can always call your school and ask exactly what they expect. Force yourself to study and work for that C+/B- !! My acceptance letter said I need to get a C or better in every class I take so I had a little room to spare.

OMG, I had the WORST senioritis this quarter and last, and between the two quarters, I took 44.5 quarter units! I was expecting such low grades, but I was pleasantly suprised out of nowhere.

Seriously, is it worth potentially throwing an acceptance away? Just push yourself. It's almost OVER!!!

I am having the hardest time focusing! I thought second semester would be a breeze.
Don't get me wrong, I am grateful to have choice of where to attend med school but it is totally stressing me out! I am trying to decide what med school to attend next year (scholarship vs. better school) etc, what to do this summer. It is so hard to do the work I need to do. Furthermore it just seems silly. Writing a 10 page philosophy paper on something that just doesn't mean much out of the classroom is getting really painful.
I am graduating soon and just want to skip out on the work and enjoy my friends who will all be scattered around the country soon.

How are all of you other acceptees dealing?

I know exactly what you guys are going through... I have a project for a class that's worth 25% of my final grade due on TUESDAY, and i'm about 10% done with it... *sigh*.... but I have no motivation whatsoever.... :(

Beach or Pool, you pick...
Definately not alone. I am in the same boat. A requirement of one incredibly great but awful scholarship of mine is that I maintain at least a 3.5 each individual semester. Not a big deal so far, but this semester is different. I get the scholarship as a 'loan' and do not have to pay it back if I get my GPA...AHHH....I know what you guys are feeling. (And I thought I was in easy classes this semester too).

What pisses me off is that I took 4 less credit hours this semester than usual because I knew I would get senioritis. My reward: almost twice as much work during finals week. Ugh, Ive heard the phrase "less is more" but why couldnt that apply to athleticism or something.

Thank God for SDN! I am no longer alone in my fears. I got sick, went to second look weekends, and ..... Who will believe I'm in the middle of finals? I have 9 days of Ugrad left. Let's hope I can keep my semester grades in the B range.
