My husband is going back to school and one of the things I needed to get was his college transcript. Let’s just say I was surprised on the grades he got throughout college. It was lower than what I expected.
Anyway, what was your GPA in college?
Ok, I decided to go by letter grade since the whole different grading scale complicates things.
Now, I wasn’t an amazing student but I consider myself a B average student (GPA was 3.21 based off a 4.0 grading scale) and my major was biology. I thought it was good.
Oh, if you are interested in how other countries’ grading system is like- look here.

I had a 3.69 on a 4.0 scale, and graduated Cum Laude… I was so so proud on graduation day!!!

3.8 but 4.0 in my major and minor.
Yeah I was a geek.

I was a 2.9 on a 4.0 scale. I had the great pleasure of being in all the classes with the pre-med majors and everything was graded on a curve 🙁 I’m really smarter than that!

It was kinda embarassing though when I graduated Magna Cum laude but was 8 months pregnant. ooops.

I didn’t do so hot but I chose a difficult major that I loved instead of the easy major that I hated. Organic chemistry, calculus, and physics killed me. 🙁

I’m a solid B student in accounting. But when I was in engineering, I was barely surviving–it devastated me.

I have a 3.95 and the only class killing my 4.0 is an English class I didn’t even need. Go figure.

3.92, i got a b+ in a summer class…oops. But summa cum laude yay!

Wow! We have some great students in the hive!
@JediAshley: Yeah, calculus and physics was difficult for me. I got the C needed for my degree. I struggled in chemistry, too but for some reason I enjoyed Organic chemistry.

Magna Cum Laude and working a 40 hour week job for the last 3 of 4 years, with a double major yeah!
And I got my masters working about 48 hours a week and that was somewhere above a 3.5 🙂

3.98 on a 4.00 scale. We Canadians don’t have cum laude, magna and summa. Just “here’s your diploma and your first student loan statement” lol

I ended up with a 3.4 at graduation, which was ok to me. I could have done better, but honestly, I did the bare minimum to get by because I just had so much other stuff to get done and I knew as long as I kept at least a B average, I would be fine. And I was right!
My bff kills herself and has 0 life during the school year to maintain a 4.0, and I just couldn’t do that. I’m happy with my 3.4 and barely trying 🙂

I think my cumulative was like a 3.4, but from semester to semester I was anywhere from 3.2 to 3.9. I had a few bad semesters but still ended up on the Dean’s list quite a few times.
I’m actually glad I didn’t waste my time trying for perfect grades–I worked all through college and took a ton of internships and the like to supplement my degree. The end result is that I was able to land a pretty competitive internship after graduation, while most of my 4.0 peers are still searching for a job because they have little to no experience in their field. (Except for teachers, which get snatched up really quickly around here!)
