So who else is feeling the cold grip of senioritis? Knowing that I'm already in is making it really hard to focus in on my random classes I need to get my degree. Should I care so much? Should I have skipped class last friday to drive to a haunted stairway in Spokane? Should I miss biochem to watch the ENTIRE season of a crappy sci-fi original show with my roommates?

Check in here for all those who are feeling the burn!

I have senioritis as a first year grad student. I already have my degree and the rest of these classes are just supplemental, so I can just cruise through. Yet, for some odd reason I was up early today studying hardcore for a toxicology midterm. Maybe I don't have that bad of a bug just yet......

What is senioritis, is a symptom checking SDN while in class. If it is I have it bad.

I got it bad too. I am doing better since I bombed my first physics test and realized that if I don't pass I can say goodbye to d-school.

I didn't have senioritis in my last semester of college. I actually worked my ass off harder than ever before, skipped spring break to study for midterms, etc...

yeah...I'm saving some time for myself to chill, but for some reason I still have that competitive nature to study hard when the tests come around...:confused::confused::confused:

Its rather hard to focus on classes now. I'm finishing up my masters and I already have my BS complete with all my pre-reqs done. So its really killing me to get through them with at least a B in both. Oh well, only 2 months left!

Im trying to Ace the first few exams so that i can coast the rest of the way through..

Maybe i can convince a professor or two to allow me to skip finals and just give me the B's that i need if i manhandle the midterms?

"C's get degrees" does that include DMD's?

I am burnt out hardcore, I just aced my biochem exam and it feels like I wasted my week studying for it. Now I am going to coast the rest of the way.

Now I just feel like cramming all the boarding in that I can before the snow goes away.

Blidtz, I feel ya on the competitive aspect. I can't stand others doing better than me. We will see how the next few weeks go. :laugh:

I feel you guys on the competition. It irks me to see pre-nursing students doing better then me on anatomy tests, even though we both got A's and they've been studying all week and I showed up half and hour late and drunk to the exam.

Well, I might be exaggerating a little bit but you get what I'm saying...

I know what you mean armor, not studying for a week is the equivalent to being drunk for us nerdy mormons. :laugh: It is so fun and so addicting.

For those of you in the midwest or any colder state, just wait til the weather breaks.

Once it was warm enough for shorts and tee's, we never went to class. Just sat outside, grilled and drank all day/night, played with the slip and slide, and "harassed" anyone who was walking to or from class. I'm glad I made it out of college with a decent enough GPA, because the last year and a half seemed to be one continous weekend/party...except for tuesday nights because I didn't think those were too fun. Oh how I miss the zero responsibilities of college life...

i don't have senioritis. I spend my days watching the entire 4-5 seasons of lost... boston legal... now im onto desperate housewives....

I think I remember one biochem class I went to? I go to microbio labs twice a week....:sleep:

I suppose going out drinking for 4-5 days a week isn't too healthy either...:smack:

Talk about slacker!! I'm somehow doing fine though...... it finally caught up to me today.. i have a paper due tomorrow... and biochem test wed.... should be a fun two nights!

Somehow I'm doing better than ever in all my classes... WEIRD!

I'm sure they would like us to think that, so we don't do poorly in school and pull down their accepted class GPA. But I'd be surprised to see if they actually enforced this when push came to shove.

My gpa wont be available until Mid December. Do schools hold on to their decision and wait for the fall semester grades? And is it required that we really update the AADSAS if its not asked by any school?

I don't think it's mandatory to do the AADSAS academic update. I heard that it's "a chance" to update schools.

Hey lets not put down pre-nursing students because of their choice of profession. Assuming they should do worse is sortof like saying we should do worse than someone aspiring to get their MD. To each their own.

lol... you are studying for the DAT 8 months before the fact? if you care/attempt/think you can study this far in advance, you do not have senioritis.

Yea, senioritis has slowly snuck up on me. Unfortunately I still have Biochem to take in the spring, and an internship to do, so not too much slacking for me!
