GPA: secret shame
I'm an econ student at Columbia and my secret shame is that I'm going to graduate with a 3.3 GPA. I really didn't do well during my first year and even though I've been improving and actually got a 3.87 last semester, I know that realistically I won't get over a 3.3 before I graduate. What are my options? I want to go to grad school eventually but I know I'll probably need to wait on that, but I don't know where I can get hired in the meantime.1 replies
