Why GPA no Longer Matters

Why GPA no Longer Matters

This is a “well, duh!” article, but it just reinforces how many students are so hung up on getting high grades that actually LEARNING something from their classes takes a backseat. And it’s pretty apparent that once you apply for jobs, GPA doesn’t matter.

I just thought I’d share this article as being in grad school I’m currently forgetting that the whole point of being here is to learn, and even though maintaining a 3.0 (or higher) is of utmost importance, I need to remember to get something out of my classes too, not just a good grade.
