Some people will tell you that there is no such thing as Senioritis, but I’m here to tell you that Senioritis does in fact exist. Every year seniors are plagued by symptoms such as: missing homework assignments, a lack of concentration, procrastination, school related fatigue, and excessive wearing of sweatpants. Read on if you or someone you know experiences one or more of these symptoms.
Senioritis results in decreased motivation in seniors and causes them to slack off their senior year. I know a lot of hard working students who have been hardly working. Many students have this crazy notion that they can slack off their senior year and everything will be great. Do not, I repeat, do not get that idea. Colleges can and will renege your acceptance if the grades from your senior year are not up to par. Many students learn this the hard way.
So how do you cure Senioritis? The answer is simple: stay awake in class, pay attention, do your homework, and study. If the teacher gives you homework or discusses something in class, you can bet your bottom dollar that it will be on the test. Remember that you have been in school for pretty much your whole lifetime, and you don’t want to throw it all away months or weeks before your graduation. Also, remember that AP exams are right around the corner. Imagine how great you’ll look and feel in that cap & gown knowing that you didn’t slack off your final year of high school.
This is your year to shine, and you can’t do that if you’re not living up to your full potential. Take control of Senioritis, don’t let it control you.
You rock class of 2013! We’re almost there!

I’ve recently taken both the SAT and the ACT. I, personally, was much more comfortable with the SAT and I kind of enjoyed it because I was able to do something that no one else could- relax. I wouldn’t mind taking it again. In fact, I plan on retaking them both soon. I didn’t feel that either of them was hard (I get the scores back from the SAT on March 29th. EDIT: I got a 1670), however the time frame for the reading portion of the ACT really nipped me in the butt. I just can’t read fast enough to answer 40 questions in 35 minutes. Seeing how I’ve already experienced both of these very important tests, this article is about how I can help you do better.
usnews.com has come up with the 2012 list of the top universities. What’s so special about this list? It’s not just limited to U.S universities, but the top universities of the world. This list consists of the top 400 schools, with 13 of the first 20 being American schools, 1 Swiss school, 1 Canadian school, and the remaining 5 of the first 20 being in the UK. I believe this list is well worth your while to check out. You never know, you just may be surprised!
