    GPA's are stupid and pointless!

    Only tightwads and introverts get good ones! The real world relies on smooth talking smart***es and jokers that don't give a **** about school.

    Considering I finished my one semester of college at 0.0, I approve of this message.

    Spoken like a true college student. 2.8 right here.

    Edit: And expected to fall after this semester. The DI is murder for your classes.

    Yes and no. Certainly you don't have to have good grades or any formal education to speak of in order to be highly successful if you are skilled and driven enough.

    Conversely, very good grades won't guarantee you financial or career success. Having horrible social skills can kill a career regardless of how intelligent one is.

    I fall into the graduated with a virtually worthless sociology degree and bad grades to boot, yet my social skills have helped me out immensely.

    True, but also GPA is not always directly correlated to high intelligence.

    True. I certainly hope my GPA isn't correlated.

    As long as you are over a 3.0, it really doesn't matter much. If it's under a 3.0 you're going to have a lot less options right out of school.

    2.5 right here and I already have 2 jobs open for me after I graduate. Grades don't mean **** if you have experience and you work your *** off. (In the landscaping business anyway.)

    Not necessarily true. Even with that first job, assuming you have A DEGREE, networking and social skills can usually trump GPA, from everything that I can tell.
