      oie, i know exactly what you mean. i have no motivation at all to do any work. as for "satisfactory work", i know that for some schools they specifically say that you need to have at least a c in all classes. im not sure if its the same for every school, but im guessing that passing is a pretty standard.

        i was thinking of calling the schools i have it narrowed down to and asking if i'd be okay to drop a class and change one to p/f. the deadline for that at my school is past, though, so i don't think that's going to work anyway. but yeah, i can barely get myself to sit through class, let alone turn in problem sets and outlines and lab reports and whatever else. i've decided that this is okay, though, because this is the last time in life i'll be able to act irresponsibly.

          Yes, I'm in the same boat. I have two tests next week; and for one class, I haven't even opened the book yet. On top of that, I should be studying right now, but instead, I find myself reading and writing posts on this website. I've been putting off work ever since school started and telling myself that homework is overrated. LOL. :laugh:

              I'm glad I'm not the only one, OP! It's even easier to blow off your classes when you're taking Yoga and Aerobics. I'm also taking Spanish and med ethics. I feel so lazy, but I would be kind of embarrassed to know that I got a B in yoga or aerobics, so I just go instead of sleeping in.

              This is going to be the longest semester of our lives!!

              Good luck! :luck:

                hey don't knock those ESS classes. stretching and golf are two of my more challenging courses right now, and they are helping me meet that pesky 12 credit minimum. life is rough. :thumbup:

                  I got an acceptance letter a week before the semester started and I dropped two classes and picked up a pointless one to stay full time. It's wonderful but hopefully I get some drive and remember how to study when next fall comes around. I'm having a hard time motivating myself to do anything right now.
                  Is anyone working this summer? I'm considering taking off but I could use some extra cash...then again I might as well just let the debt grow, it's going to be huge anyway.

                    at least you guys have already gotten in! Try being a senior who has yet to apply...senioritis affects us too

                    MY solution is to bury myself under a bunch of new activities. I know I'll end up dropping some when my work load gets too stiff, but for now, I feel like a freshman again :D

                      I took the 5 year route... this last semster I am just doing reasearch, and work. M-Thursday, I sleep in till like 11, go to lab whenever I feel like it, hit the gym while waiting for stuff to happen...

                      but my senioritis hit last year :)

                        I hear you on the senioritis. I'm tempted to say C=degree but I won't because it could come back to haunt me. I think as long as you pass your classes you should be fine, but I have heard of acceptances being withdrawn because of bad grades so definately don't make D's.

                          i've got an acute case.

                          i did early decision and have known since october 1st... i've spent way more time in the bar than in the library this year.

                          at our interviews, the dean of admissions said that if we got accepted, we just needed "to not get any D's or F's" to keep our spot. she also said that last year, there was a guy who got in early decision, and then got a "D" in a course he needed to graduate. They let him retake it over the summer and keep his admission.

                          So if any of you are ever in Kansas, PM me. We'll go drinking.

                            My senioritis is so bad that I didn't go to my classes today....any of them....and I'm pretty sure I had a quiz or something in one of them.

                                  senioritis = i haven't been to philosophy 140 for exactly 1 month.

                                  I have been to statistics exactly 3 times this semester (1 of those was to take a test). I can't seem to find the motivation to study. I've never been happy with anything less than an A, but I find myself doing the calculations for "what do I need on this final to get a C?" (My acceptance just says you have to get no grades worse than a C). Ohhhh mediocrity. So beautiful.

                                    I've got it bad too, but unfortunately for me, I decided to take a 300 level medical history course that I need as a gen-ed to graduate... I think its one of those 'effort' classes, where if you don't do anything, you will fail. Yeah, I'm getting a D in it right now. So senioritis has turned into - schizo-graduatitis. I'm going crazy here!! +pissed+

                                      I have senioritis quite badly. I shouldn't considering I'm reapplying, but I do. I have a quiz in Virology this afternoon that I haven't studied for at all. And I don't give a rat's butt! Is this a bad thing?
