Lately I have been dreaming that even though I walked for my high-school graduation, I somehow slipped through the cracks, had failed classes and needed to return to finish them — I would have to leave medical school. Do you have similar dreams?

I've had this dream....long after finishing college. So I go around to my old teachers and tell them I'm skipping class because I have my BS...it's bizarre

Apparently a quite common kind of dream. Mine happen with me back in college on finals week without having attended several classes at all during the term and not knowing where the exam is. I'm often walking the halls looking for the exam room while naked.

I've had basically the same recurring dream maybe 6-8 times in my life. The theme is trying out for the baseball team in college. Sometimes I make it, sometimes I don't know, but the dream always ends with me beginning the next step, whether it's meeting with the coach, rearranging my classes, talking to the equipment manager, etc. It's always a positive, energizing dream that I wish would go on longer.

Haha, yes. My nightmares of missing final exams, etc. ended in my late forties. I feel your pain. 😉

Shit yes.
I often dream I have to repeat high school final exams (Abitur in Germany) and am totally unprepared.
Meanwhile, I've taught myself to curb the dream by recalling you never have to repeat those exams.
I'd be in 46th grade, wha??
