    My senior year was when I decided to kill my GPA to maximize my chances to get laid.

    It was worth it. I got to touch at least three boobs that year. Shame I'm destitute now.

    I graduated HS in 1970. I wasn't stressed at all. I guess it was a lot different back then..

    Stress? In high school? No.

    College? Another story altogether.

    Not true. High school is a stepping stone. Fair or not, you are judged by your grades for future opportunities at least that is how I seeit in the States.

    It was only 40 years ago, but I took a full academic schedule without undo stress. I might temper that statement with the understanding that today, the competition for good grades among those who want to exceed might be more fierce.

    Yes, but the HS grades don't matter after college.

    Grades plus extra valued activities is what gets you into the desired college. Once there, it's a clean slate.

    In my experience, college grades don't matter after college, either. Maybe if you majored in law.

    I got a 2.17 in High school, but I was still was able to graduate from Berkeley

    Your gpa would be higher than 3.0, but only a little bit. depends on how much the class was worth. 3.0 as a high school gpa isn't that good honestly, but luckily once you graduate, high school grades don't matter at all

    or medicine

    Even then it can me relatively little and easy wiped by 2 years at a community college to get the core out of the way.

    Over all high school means little as long as you get your diploma.

    ----------

    Honestly I call it average at best. Call me heartless but that whst it is. In high school I had an 85 GPA. I was pretty much dead center in class rank. To be exact 3 from dead center.

    you can easily get into a good college as long as you have a high school diploma. Now it may not be your top choice but top choice and good college are 2 very different thing.

    In the real world where you degree comes from does not matter that much just you have a degree. There are only a handful of schools that it can matter (Ivy league here) and even then it will depend on the job. The most important fact is you have a degree.

    Here are the requirements for a college degree and a job.

    1). do you have a degree.
    2). Is the degree from an accredited school.
    3). Depending the job what is your degree in.
    4). And very VERY distant 4th and only matters on job 1 a little bit. What is your GPA and does it meet there min requirement. After that does not matter. Oh and this can easily be gotten around because once you get the interview it does not matter.

    Welcome to the real world where we do not care where you went to school, what your GPA is ect. It more do you fill in these check boxes for an interview.

    know how to write correctly. Something almost all High schoolers do very very poorly. Hell a lot of college grads do it poorly as well.

    If your posts here are any indication, you don't seem to have the best grasp of grammar, punctuation, spelling, and syntax. I understand not everyone is careful when composing posts on a message board, so you could easily be more competent than you appear.

    That's not meant to be mean; it's just something you should consider if you want to get into a "good college."

    If you improve your writing, you might even get into a gooder college.
