Sophmore girl dating senior
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.There are a variety of schools and programs that offer things like dual degrees, a fifth-year master's degree, or a fellowship that requires extra enrollment beyond four years.Or maybe you'll come across a great semester-long internship program that requires you to take a reduced number of credits: Taking the job may mean you graduate later than planned, but you'll do so with experiences and a resume that will make you more competitive in the job market.In contrast, calling someone a "super senior" because they've failed multiple classes and perhaps enjoy the party scene rather than work to finish in four years is, indeed, a bit of a put down.There can be legitimate reasons why people take more than four years to finish college.The term "super senior" refers to a student who attends a four-year institution (either high school or college) for more than four years.
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.
The name stems from the fact that high school and college students typically take four years to get their diplomas.
Each year of school has its own name: Your first year is your "freshman" year, your second year is your "sophomore" year, your third year is your "junior" year and your fourth year is your "senior" year.
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.
