Senioritis--Who has it and how bad?
« on: April 10, 2005, 01:43:26 PM »
What's your worst senioritis moment so far?

I've got three tests on tomorrow that I REALLY need to study for, and instead I'm starting a new thread and wasting time away on LSD.

Mine was my political ecology term paper.  It was a 20-25 page paper that we had the entire semester to work on and it was due at 9:30 this morning....I finally started it at 2:00 yesterday afternoon  :-[

zMe too. I just can't motivate myself to do anything in school, I'll skip class to watch TV, go eat with my friends, sleep. Does it matter if your last semester grades are lower for law school purposes?

Not as long as you a least do well enough to graduate in good standing.  However it will matter if you are trying to get into a school off the waitlist because great last semester grades are one thing you can send them to try to convince them to let you in.

Which means that we who are in and deposited have no real reason to try. As long as we pass...

Yes, I have never experienced so much lack of motivation and I was wondering if it was just me.

Great news! I'm only posting while I should be studying for 2 tests tomorrow, not for 3. One of them got pushed back, thank God.

From what I've heard around here, it's pretty much everybody. Amazing how much less motivation we have when there's no real point to trying.

You've got quite the list of acceptances yourself. That's the problem for us... no matter what we do (barring failing a course needed for our degree or getting convicted of a felony or misdemeanor) we have SO many places to choose from.
