The sleep-deprived, zombie-like disease of a high-school junior who has overdosed on AP or honors classes and extracurriculars.
A person with junioritis exhibits characteristic tendencies such as caffeine dependence, poor posture, a bleak social life, and basic hatred for anyone without homework. Used as a noun or occasionally as an expletive, if said with enthusiasm.
I was up until three this morning writing an argumentative essay and studying for an AP history exam.

A condition that strikes high school juniors. Symptoms include frequent headaches, frequent complaints of stress, random hyperventilation, violent mood swings, and a disinterest in schoolwork. Mainly caused by an overdose of AP classes, a very heavy workload, college visits, extracurricular activies, and school sports. In 99.8% of all cases of junioritis, senioritis will result. There is no known cure. Treatments include snow days or any prolonged vacation period.

Junioritis is when a student in their third year of high school suffers the effects of work overload, (Can become more severe when an individual mixes AP and Honors classes with a part-time job), and a lack of recreational time with acquaintances and friends. Usually results in only looking forward to sleeping, if only for 4-5 hours per night due to studies, frequent mental meltdowns, and crankiness towards all individuals in the students life. Symptoms usually begin around October, and continue until Mid-Late June when the shock of the realization that Junior year is finally over subsides.
"I have to write my 10-page research paper, but I am super-suffering from Junioritis and feel like my brain has become mental soup and will leak out of my ears"

After many medical tests, the doctor diagnosed the 17 year old boy, who's brain was no longer able to function due to excessive use, with Junioritis.

After explaining her plight of having too many end of the year projects to her AP history teacher, the teacher showed no sympathy to the student suffering from Junioritis and said "Well, I hear Senior year is fun."

A terminal strain of Senioritis that is obtained by excessive laziness and contact with infected seniors. Junioritis tends to attack young people around the age of 17 or at the end of there 3rd year of high school. This tragic disease affects a person’s ability to obtain any form of motivation used to achieve tasks specifically related to public high schools; it also affects a person’s ability to judge long spans of time, often giving the infected individual a false sense of hope and relaxation. In its later stages this disease can lead to failing of classes, summer school and in some extreme cases failure to graduate, coma, and death. Some medications for this illness include Ritalin, caffeine, and excessive strikes to the individuals face and groin.

similar to senioritis, it is when a junior in high school gets so sick of AP, the SATs, college admissions, and the high amount of work that they become completly lazy

The condition of being so fed up with Junior year work (eg. AP/Honors courses work, SATs, IBs, SAT IIs, ACTs) that a person experiences mental breakdowns, frustration, and bouts of "DGAF"-ing. The state of being unable to concentrate shortly follows.

The condition of being so unable to focus, that Junior updates definitions of "Junioritis" on Urban Dictionary, rather than do their work.
My severe case of Junioritis is the reason I am on Urban Dictionary right now.
