College senior dating sophomore
Dear Abby: I’m a senior girl in high school and have been dating a sophomore who is less than a year younger than I am.(I’m very young for my grade.) We have a lot in common, and I think we both love each other a lot.The term "super senior" refers to a student who attends a four-year institution (either high school or college) for more than four years.
I was already hesitant about dating him because he was younger, although I knew if the situation were reversed it wouldn’t be a problem.In contrast, calling someone a "super senior" because they've failed multiple classes and perhaps enjoy the party scene rather than work to finish in four years is, indeed, a bit of a put down.There can be legitimate reasons why people take more than four years to finish college.That being said, one of the greatest consequences of taking longer to complete college is the financial burden.Scholarships are sometimes limited to the first four years of study, and there are limits on federal student loans to undergraduates.
And from time to time, people encounter personal challenges or medical situations that delay their ability to graduate.
