I just finished my freshman year at a very respectable public college. I'm expecting my cum. GPA to be around like 3.2 to 3.3, even though I took rather easy classes this semester.
Although I know CC isn't a very representative sample, I feel like I'm behind or something for no reason--even though I don't know even know how much GPA is going to affect my future (isn't it really only good for the first job, then it's experience after that? heck, I don't even want a 9-5) I have never had any plans to go to Harvard Law School, be some I-banker at Goldman Sachs, or anything outlandish that requires perfection...so I'm just wondering, what is a "good" college GPA? And what does the GPA even really determine/entail?
I hate to be so numbers and grades focused, but it just seems like I am already.
