Any of you undergrads losing motivation?
« on: November 03, 2007, 09:27:32 PM »
The whole LSAT/application process thing sucked up most of my time these last two months and for the first time in my life I've gotten behind in school. But now that my applications are in, I'm having a hard time staying motivated. Anyone else in this same boat?

Most definitely.  This is my last semester.  Making it worse is the fact that I am in:

-2 sophomore general engineering classes (for which I have completed substantial subsequent coursework already)
-1 senior lab course (which is generally recognized by students and faculty alike as one of the worst courses in the department)
-2 freshman/sophomore humanities classes (these are actually my two favorite classes... one of them is formal logic, the other American history)

This is BY FAR my least favorite semester.  Usually I love school.  This semester I absolutely HATE it because I have to take these stupid required courses and am not learning ANYTHING new.

I can't wait for law school to start.  Everything will be new to me, and unlike many, I thrive in a super-competitive atmosphere.

Some of us on the upward grade trend are just hitting our stride. :)

That said, I'll be glad when I'm finished.

I graduated in May, but law school just kept me focused.... I wanted a 4.0 for as many semesters as possible.

AMEN!  goodness it is hard to start research papers that are due soon when I am focusing on apps and looking on this board 24/7 LOL!  I will I could stop obsessing, but it is way too late to change my ways.  Seriously though, I need to get on it, cause I need another 4.0 to raise my GPA to a 3.6!

I haven't done anything since I sent my apps in.  I think my thesis advisers are getting a bit upset with me.   :-\

I'm in two incredibly boring upper-level Econ classes and one mindnumbingly terrible philosophy seminar with the douchiest professor I've ever met in my life. I only have one class I like this semester, and my work product is terrible.

Next semester is mostly electives and CJ classes that I love, so I'm hoping I improve. It's pretty hard for me to care though, basically all I need to do is not fail.

I don't have time to lose motivation.  I have five classes (17 credits) right now, while still working full-time.  The Winter semester will be great, though.  I will only need 2 credits to graduate, so I will feel like I am on vacation.  This will be the easiest few months since the Fall semester of '04.  I can't wait!

I graduated last May and have been working for a year now, but I just thought I'd add that my productivity at work has tanked ridiculously in the last month while I've focused on my apps.  People are wondering what's happened to me, haha.

Oh well, I suppose it doesn't help that I don't give a rat's ass about my job.
