I have a similar dream, where I am trying to find the classroom, usually on the day of the final.

I have two: I'm failing calculus, and once again missed the drop date, or I'm showing up for the final and only then do I remember that I've been absent for most of the semester.

This dream and forgetting my locker combination.

Does this mean that school officially qualifies for a PTSD diagnosis?

Shit. I have that dream, and I teach.

Me, too. I have that dream when I am stressed - which is most of the time. Oddly, I didn't find college all that stressful - it was the best time of my life.

So true.I had have one version or another of that theme countless times even though by last med school class was in 1964.

This looks just like the xkcd forum on the topic, so I will share the same information here. Last night I dreamed I was betting on cow races. I won $700 on MOO.

I have this dream at least twice a year, and it is always college, not high school or med school, that I am in and forget that I had a class, never go to any classes, then find out I have a final.

I wonder why we all have this dream?

Yup--PTSD! Finding the room for the final when you suddenly remember you skipped class all semester! Or, mu latest variation of trying to without sucess to find a flight out of various European airports for some urgent reason....

It had haunted me since I got my first degree. I just wake up with the mantra " they can't take it away from me"

Margaret, that's the dream I get EXACTLY!

Interestingly, I dreamed for years that I was going back to my undergrad Univ. - trying to find an apartment, register, etc. Then, I went back to school in real life at age 40, and the dream went away.
