Sophmore girl dating senior
The connotations of "super senior" vary a bit and depend on an individual student's situation.
Calling someone who is double majoring in chemistry and biology and then planning on going to medical school a "super senior" merely acknowledges they are in their fifth year.
That being said, one of the greatest consequences of taking longer to complete college is the financial burden.
Scholarships are sometimes limited to the first four years of study, and there are limits on federal student loans to undergraduates.
But when you reach senior year of college, the relationships you start (or consider starting) require a lot more effort.
Not to say that relationships during your early years of college don’t require effort (all relationships do,) but planning your life after college with someone else in mind can prove to be a challenge.
Classes, particularly at bigger schools, can be difficult to get into, making it a challenge to complete your degree requirements by the end of senior year.
That becomes even more difficult if you've changed your major a few times, effectively cutting down the amount of time you have to get everything done.
You could easily party the night away and still successfully write a paper two hours before class started.
If you truly love someone and have been with them for some time, then I can see how it would be slightly unrealistic to just break up and move on with your life.
But if you happen to be in your senior year & single with no attachment, then word to the wise, consider whether you seriously want to embark on something serious.
No matter how you figure out how to pay for it, an extra year or more of tuition payments won't come cheap.
On the other hand, doing a fifth-year master's program could actually help you save money.
