Does your transcript matter?

After you've been accepted to college, does your high school transcript even count anymore? Like...do grad schools look at it for acceptances, or do places that hire you want it, or what?

*I really just want to get a C in Calculus...that's why. USC rejected me and now I have little reason to try so hard.

    No one will need to see your detailed transcript once you graduate from college. Your college resume will trump your high school one. Then after you've been in the workforce for several years, your work record will trump your college transcript. You truly move on.

    As long as you get ok grades (I.e. no Ds/Fs) than colleges won't rescind and once your in college, HS is history :)

    Oh..okay...because I've heard that depending on your major, graduate schools do look at your transcript. For example, since I want to go to grad school for pharmacy, my calculus/physics grades from HS would actually matter, yes or no?
