Confession time. I loved my undergrad experience, but last semester of my senior year, it was really hard to stay motivated. I had already technically earned enough credits to graduate, so I was only taking enough credits to stay a part-time student. Something I didn’t realize at the time was that by taking minimum credits, I kept myself off the dean’s list: at my college, you had to be taking 16 credits for the dean’s list, and I was only taking 12.
