This happened to me and was the best thing ever. My "second senior year" as I referred to it, even though it was just a semester , was so worth it. It meant I graduated in the spring instead of Dec. (education major). I picked up additional certifications, and I had an awesome personal time engaging in "college social behaviors" with out so many academic pressures.

I took an entire extra year to finish my art degree, planned, from soph. year. I had such a drastic change of majors that it would have been pretty horrid to fit everything in, even though the change was early. Fortunately my parents were supportive (or just resigned) and this ended up giving me wonderful time to focus on my bfa thesis. Talking to some of the faculty, many thought the art program SHOULD have been a five year program, like archetecture.

I always called it my victory lap. :)

Thanks for the support! I like the "victory lap" idea. I'll pass that on - when she gets home from Italy!
