Senioritis Cured

Senioritis is that time-honored “disease” that affects graduating seniors during the last half of their senior year.

However, it might just be in remission, according to USA Today, which reports that “skipping classes, missing tests, attending parties instead of athletic practice and generally slacking off at the end of the last year of high school,” might not be a winning option this year.

Here’s why.

Since colleges are swamped with a record number of applications from the largest graduating classes in history, they have decided to over-enroll their freshman classes. However, they will be more likely to revoke an “offer of admission to those who haven’t maintained top grades or fallen short in some other way.”
