I know some people think that you are smart if you have a 3.7, 3.8 GPA, etc. But does your GPA tell you everything about that person? Does a high GPA mean that you are a smart person?
I have heard from a few professors that grades do not always reflect how smart a student is. So, in context, the professor was trying to say that someone who has a 3.5 GPA is not necessarily smarter than someone with a 2.5 GPA.
Think about it. After high school, everyone started fresh. Once the first days of classes started, it didn't matter if you had a 3.5 GPA or 3.7 GPA in high school.
After college it is about the same. My communications professor is on the review board for interviews. She said that a lot of times the people with the highest GPA's didn't get the jobs.
Think about it. Would you hrie someone with a high GPA who doesn't dress professionally or doesn't have good communication skills? You most likely wouldn't.
In conclusion, my point is that you shouldn't stress so much about your GPA. I am not saying to not try to get a high GPA, but you shouldn't worry about it. I bet you 10 years down the road you won't even remember your GPA.
