On seniors slacking off

The cyclical nature of college admissions can bring a sense of recurring deja vu to counselors…and to bloggers. No matter how frequently we’ve been here before, there are students and parents who are experiencing it for the first time. We get questions we’ve answered (often many times) before. Our answers will be new to one audience, but old news to another.

So with apologies to long-term readers, I’ve received many questions about Senioritis, how serious it can be, and whether or not allowing your grades to slip is reasonable cause for a college to take away their offer of admission. For those who are first-timers and weren’t reading this blog a year ago, I’m re-sharing last year’s post, “Can seniors afford to slack off?” I hope it and the associated links within it give you the information, and maybe even a touch of encouragement, you need.
