    Default Any college seniors on here?

    I'm graduating in May and I'm starting to freak out a little I applied for graduation and am currently working on my student teaching app. It's so weird to think that this time next year I could have my very own classroom with my very own kids! It's exciting at the same time though and I can't wait to start teaching! The whole looking for a job thing does not have me excited though

    So anyone else on here almost done or fairly close to being done?

    Congratulations on making it this far! It's a scary thought, but you'll be just fine, it's exciting, too. I should be a college senior, but took some time off first so am a little behind.

    I think it's perfectly okay to be freaking out about the end of college I finished last year and about a week after graduation I had a slight meltdown and "welcome to real life moment" and from what I know - most everyone goes through that. But look on the bright side, I am sure that whatever comes next is going to be exciting, new, and brilliant. While the future is always uncertain, and hence, hard - it's also very liberating to have something new and fresh ahead.

    I'm a college senior and have no idea what I want to do when I graduate so the panic is slowly starting to sink in

    Yep, I'm also a senior. Currently dreading picking out what my senior capstone will be - in order to graduate, I have the choice between a monograph, a laboratory experiment, or a set of 5 comprehensive exams.
    What fun.

    What if it's my second time being a senior? Lol I graduated with a BSc in biology in 2007. Spent the summer in KY and then worked for about a year and half. I'm now doing a vet tech associates degree which will finish up this coming May. I'm not overly worried this time around though.
    Who knows I may go back again someday...

    I'm definitely looking forward to getting into a classroom but it is a scary thought at the same time! I'm reading all the books I can get my hands on I'm happy to see I'm not the only one who's feeling a slight panic It's also weird because BF is a little behind me, he'll graduate one or two quarters after I do depending on his internship. A sorority sister of mine should be graduating at the same time as me from the same major though so we can have a little support group!

    To the MAX, I just got my honors project approved and am sort of looking forward to it because I'm doing To Kill a Mockingbird and Mississippi Trial, 1955 in a unit plan. I am NOT looking forward to the research part though But I have the best readers/advisors a girl could ask for!

    I'm another senior with no clue what I'll be doing after graduation. I'm not even sure what I want... Also I've never had a "real job," which is not helping matters at all!

    Congrats! That's exciting!

    I graduated in March and just started grad school last week. It's nice to be back in school and not out in the real world!

    I'm a senior working on an honors thesis, studying for the GREs, and looking forward to another 5+ years in school, plus post-doc work...

    The kicker is, I looked at my transcript yesterday and realized that I had enough credits at the end of my junior year to apply for graduation.

    I'm terrified! I have to apply for teaching certificates in history/social studies starting in a few weeks time, and am making my final choice for universities to apply to. So far I've got Edinburgh, Newcastle, and Roehampton in London. I need 2 more as I can apply to up to five. Ahhh. I also have my dissertation, which is a very scary thought.
