My D, after the apparently Herculean effort needed to get all A's 1st Semester Senior Year, which brought her GPA (3.7) up more in line with her SAT's (2260), now is looking forward to taking it easy 2d Semester. She reasons that since the apps are all in and thus the grades don't count, there is no particular reason to "stress" over her grades. Don't worry, we are told, an admission won't be revoked if the GPA is above 3.0.
As parents, we find this attitude antithetical to that ethic we have sought to inculcate, of working hard, seeking always to do one's best, for excelling and learning for its own sake, but this situation involves particular and new circumstances, we are not prepared to deal with it.
Anybody have any advice on dealing with Second Semester Senior Slack-off Syndrome?
