    Yeah, I kinda suspected that wouldn't be true--not in this crowd. :-)

      The terms should at least be mutually exclusive!

      Of course, red shirting does mess with this. You can be a 3rd year sophomore, and a 5th year athlete might even be a grad student (which I might take to mean that they have no class at all).

          Just came across a website I had not been familiar with. It's vocabulary.com, and it doesn't seem to be related to any publisher of dictionaries. They define underclassman as "an undergraduate who is not yet a senior".

          I'll think I'll stick with the major dictionaries.

            That's called Confirmation Bias.
