Just wanted to vent and give you some advice ! See, I am a Mechanical Engineer and graduated with a 2.3 GPA. So now I guess You are going to ask just like all the rest... Why so low????? Well, lets seeee..... It was in a difficult time in my life and was just trying to get through life. I even put myself through school. Oh yeah, doing that they say builds character ! Right????..... Companys will respect you for it (What a joke). Oh yeah, I've never been asked how LONG it took me to finish my degree either.
Wrong, Wrong, Wrong, and Wrong again.
Putting myself through school got me nothing and after 15 years of working as a design engineer, I still get asked and "Rejected" due to my GPA after all this time. Have you any idea how humilating that is after so long. You know, for the first time in my life I am actually sick of all of it. All my dedication to hard and thorough work has won me nothing. How would you like to have your nose rubbed in one of your failures for the remainer of your life on earth ????
So guess what? Put yourself through school, leave your school with a low GPA and you may one day be bitter like me (that's a understatement).
I think the next time this happens to me I just might walk out of the interview. At least I can still have some self respect since I think it is more important than a job or food or money or anything.
Don't worry about your GPA. They never ask. What a lie!!!!!!!!
