I have 3 exams in 3 days, and then another 2 a couple days later, but I haven't even bothered to start studying. It's the inevitable crash that comes with an extended bout of senioritis.

Mega senioritis here. I only have a 3.43 to begin with but really don't want my cum GPA to drop below a 3.4

I haven't gone to a graduation since 6th grade. I might go to my law school graduation, and if I get a PhD I'd probably go to that one.

Horrible Senioritis....once I decided on which school I was attending I just started partying and not doing any work. I have a 3.44 LSDAS (3.48 overall) but am looking at anywhere from a 2.33-3.0 (depending on finals) for this semester...I just cant muster up any motivation...I've only gotten 1 C and 1 C+ my entire UG and am looking at at least 2-3 just this semester alone..sad

So just to be clear, a law school can't revoke an offer is you say get a 2.0 your final semester?

I don't think they normally would as long as you actually graduate, unless the school specifically told you your offer of admission was contingent upon keeping a certain UG GPA.

I have a rotten case of senioritis. I have never been this lazy in my life. I've been checked out this entire semester. I'm not joking when I say I have skipped more classes this semester than I did in the entire 3 and a half years before.

OP here.
Sharing good news with those that have senioritis and still face finals.

I decided to try a new system this finals season, and study smart not hard... I'd been reading the success in law school articles on here, and tried to apply some of the advice to my course work.

I told myself that I would study for each test three times, in four hour blocks. That meant that, due to the 2/week spacing of my finals, I studied four hours a day for six days of the week. The typical four hours was split like:

10AM-12PM: study
12PM-2PM: gym then lunch
2:00PM-4PM: study
4PM-1:00AM: dinner, maybe a movie, the bar, then sleeps.
Wake up at 10AM the next day, rinse and repeat.

This fairly slack finals schedule worked wonders for me. I studied about half the time I usually do, even though I took a bigger load of course work this semester.

I ended up with a 3.73 LSDAS GPA on the semester, which means my overall LSDAS is still over 3.8.

Can't wait for summer classes actually :P . I'm taking Greek Mythology and The History of the US in film. They are one month crash courses that end in June, and pad my degree out to the required credit count for graduation. Neither has anything to do with my Econ degree, but I'm sure they'll be fun.

My attendance in class this semester has been around 33%. Horrible semester.
