Yeah, sounds like the bull they gave in high school for getting us to try on our classes. The GPA doesn't show what professor think of your work at all. Most professors I know and the ones in my college gave you good grades for the work you turned in. Only way you got poor grades is if you failed to turn it in (which is the reason I have a 3.25), if I had turned in every assignment I would have easily had a 4.0. I had a professor that gave me an A for the final grade and flat out told me he didn't care for how I did my work or presented myself. GPAs are misleading, you want evidence of their work ethics and such then see if they continued working on their trade after college, if they didn't then chances are they aren't dedicated to the job whereas someone who finished college and kept plugging away to improve it the best they could on their own obviously has a great work ethic and is very determined. How well you do in school doesn't hint at all for how well you do at work, in school you are just doing it to get out of there, work you are doing it to get paid and sustain your living so you would work harder at a job than you did in school. Too many people go into college now thinking they are guaranteed a job when they finish and when it falls through they give up."because the GPA, more than any other one number, reflects the sum of what dozens of professors over a long period of time in many different situations think about your work"
