So...for thos of us seniors who have a major case of senioritis and find it VERY difficult to motivate ourselves... How much CAN we slack off and still be okay? Anyone have any idea? I mean... would it hurt getting a C or so once you're already in... it shouldn't, right?

If you get a D, F, or more than 3 Cs, that would be grounds for your acceptance being taken away. You will then have to reapply because of this. Tread carefully.

Remeber that certain (usually competitive) specialties require your undergraduate transcript during the match process.

I heard the same too...and some also ask for your MCAT score. That's why I think it's good to stick to the end and end good.

With that being said, my last final as an undergrad's tomorrow (I'm on the quarter system). After that, I'm unofficially not an undergrad anymore :D

Woah, I've never heard that before! Which specialties have you heard that about? ENT?? I've got decent grades, but nothing impressive. My undergrad school is hardly impressive. I was hoping I could start afresh in med school.l

On an additional note...

How much do spring grades matter to schools where you're waitlisted? I am slacking off so much since I've already gotten into a school that I want to go to... but I want to get off the waitlist to Penn too!

A lot of schools use very loose terms in their acceptance letters. Many of them say that you have to maintain the level of performance you had as an applicant. So I guess for all you 4.0 students out there, the pressure is on! Get one A- or B+ and your acceptances to Harvard go out the window.

Nah, it's not that serious. My letters just have the "satisfactory completion of requirements thing"

I think most want you to just finish up your degree and that's it. At least that's what my acceptance letters seem to suggest.....

I have heard that as well, but personally I'll believe it when I see it. Your undergrad performence is not going to throw your STEP 1, med school grades, and evaluations out the window... I think they care more if your surgical evaluator thought you were any good versus whether you got a B in orgo or not.
