Thought I''d start a thread for finals kvetching, since it''s about that time!

I have 6 classes and a lab. Classes end tomorrow, and I have all 6 of my exams next week on Tues, Weds, Thurs.. and haven''t really started studying yet.

Anyone else with me in the hell week that is finals?

not yet... i''m almost jealous. we still have three weeks of school before finals start. luckily for me though, i only have two finals! my other three classes are doing final projects though... i''ve only really started on one of them so far.

i''m probably crazy... but i almost enjoy finals week... i mean i''m nervous and stressed out, but like... i don''t know... there''s almost less to do? i don''t have to go to class or do homework.

*hugs* and good luck though.

Our finals week doesn''t start until the second week of May so I still have some time to prepare. It''s more likely that I''ll procrastinate since that seems to be my M.O!

Good luck to you elle and everyone else with upcoming exams!

Can I join in? I want to b*tch about BFs finals


I NEVER see him during the months he has finals. It majorly sucks. I know he has to, but I want to spend time with him, and he is so stressed out. Ugh.

Good luck, ladies! I know you smart PS women will do great. I actually MISS having finals...kind of. At least the sweet relief you feel when they are over!

Thankfully, I have no finals during finals week.
However, I have to do two case studies for psychopathology due next week.
Then, I have a 30 page (eek!
) for law school due on 5/1.
I would much rather have to take finals during finals week!!!!
Good luck to all!

I''m sitting here reading PS and watching Housewives of NYC instead of studying for finals or working on the paper due Friday! EEEK! I keep banking on everyone else waiting until the last minute too and just hope I fall into that lovely law school curve. And of course all I can really think about is when he''s finally going to pop the question...

Good luck with finals everyone!

Classes end on the 24th for us so I have 1 1/2 weeks left of classes Our exams start on April 27th and end on May 5th. I have 5 classes, but luckily I only have 3 exams. The other 2 have final projects that count for our exam grade.

I am graduating on May 9th, and I am sooo ready to be done. I bought my cap and gown today and mailed my graduation announcements. I''m getting kind of nervous about graduating. I don''t have a job yet and it''s a little scary.

I gave my big final project presentation to the class today and it went really well. Now all I have left is a group paper that is due next week and finals. I am so ready to be done. This semester has been hell.

Not anymore, but I definitely remember the stress. I wish I had some great insights, but I seem to recall that getting through finals generally involved living in pajamas and ordering ungodly amounts of pizza


Good luck!

Oy! I''ve been out of college for a few years, but you girls are causing me to remember some horrible moments.

The best thing about finals is when they''re over! Then you can sell your books back to the bookstore for an unreasonably small amount of money. (But enough to buy some drinks and celebrate that another semester is over!) Ahh college.....

No finals, but I''ve been plugging away at papers for my grad classes for MONTHS.

Unnecessarily huge curriculum project in progress now, but I need to finish it by Saturday to mail to my crazy prof in order to revise it before the final due date. I feel so behind. Plus I need to create a presentation to give in that class next week.

Thesis was due this week, but I missed my deadline. *sigh* I can still turn it in by June to be eligible for graduation in August.

I still need one more class to graduate and I am trying to petition to get it as a tutorial beginning in May or June. I truly must be crazy...

We don''t have any final exams, but I have had lots of final projects/papers. Our last class day for 4 of my classese is next week, for 1 of mine it''s mid May, and for the other class (I am taking a total of 6 classes --- 18 hours!!! I am insane.) I am just now starting and it ends in August.

Oh, and come June I am taking two additional courses, and starting another in July. O_O

All this so I can student teach in September and graduate in December!! It''s a lot of work, but I am proud that at only 21 years old I am almost done.

My finals start two weeks from today. I''ll have 4 finals, as well as 2 final presentations. I also have quite a few papers due in the next couple of weeks, and of course I procrastinated horribly. Best of luck to everyone--I hope we all survive!

I already graduated college, but when I got laid off I thought long and hard about a career change (something more stable and that paid better) so I signed up for an online class in that area. I will be so happy when this class is over!! It is harder than i thought taking an online class and trying to figure out what the teacher means by her assignments. I would love to be able to pursue a new career change but I just don''t have the funds now and its a vicious cycle. I don''t have the funds, so I need to work, but when working I don''t have time. Phew.

Good luck on final papers and exams ladies!

Gross, Bia.


At least when the final is over, I''ll have the satisfaction of knowing I just completed another semesters. When your meeting is over... well... I don''t know how much satisfaction there is in that.

Blah.
