I am very proud to announce that I made the Vice Presidents Honor Roll with a 3.6 GPA. It's the highest GPA I've ever earned in my four years of college.

I tried very hard, studied hard, and spent hours doing homework. I had five A's and one C (macroeconomics). My GPA was only a 2.3 before this, so that's why I'm estatic.

Carry on.

6 classes in a semester? Jeez. That's not going to leave much time for drinking beer and chasing chicks.

Sweet work. :clap:

I am very proud to announce that I am stealing your thunder with this: I graduated a week ago summa cum laude, my cumulative GPA being 4.0.

That is generally considered to be a high one. Impressive. What's your major?

English and Philosophy.

I am prepared to live a life of destitution.

Don't you by default have to go to law school now?

If not I think there are vagabonds in Greenwich Village parks who will house you if you start a literature society.

I am prepared to live a life of destitution.Don't feel so bad, I decided I didn't want to live a life of destitution, so I switched from my English Lit major (much easier and much more enjoyable) to an Economics major (f*cking godawful boring bullshit); and thanks to recent Economic factors, I'm destined to live said life of destitution for the short run.

I went from enjoying my first two years of school, and holding a 3.9 GPA, to pretty much hating all of my classes and dropping to a 3.0 by the time it was all said and done.

I'm going to grad school for creative writing. Law school would definitely be the smarter option.

BTW -- Dunit, keep it up. Don't sweat the macroeconomics. Nobody cares to understand macroeconomics, not even economists.

That's cool, though. I'd like to write creative things seriously. Creative doesn't just mean fiction does it?

No. It could mean poetry. It could mean playwriting or screenplay writing. In my case, my genre is creative nonfiction.

I just officially declared a Writing major from being an undeclared American Political Studies. I'm broke without law school in either circumstance.

I wish I had double-majored in undergrad. Life would be a lot simpler now if I had just added some practicality to what I enjoy. I suggest everyone study what they wish but I also strongly recommend you also study something that you can carry with you to a job interview.

If you laid all economists end to end they would never reach a conclusion.

Congrats, and know that my policy is to never hire a person who makes an A in macroeconomics. If they do, that's proof to me that I'm not going to like them.

Sure would.

As someone who graduated with an degree in English 5 years ago, jumping into law is the right move.

I'm now graduating with my Master's in Special Education on Saturday. My final GPA is a 3.83.

Congratulations, Mr. Dunit35. That is a well-deserved honor. I trust you have celebrated appropriately and repeatedly dipped the class pen into the ink of bliss.

As for the Macroeconomics, nobody uses that stuff anymore. No need. We're going socialist, baby.

It's not so bad being me.

Make a good living.

Never have weekend hours.

Never work a holiday.

Get 2 and a half months off in the summer.

Spring Break, winter breaks.

12 sick days spread out over 180 days.

I truly enjoy working with special needs kids, but the perks are much, much better than at my old job.

Shit dude, it was a throw-a-way line.

My mom teaches special ed, actually. I used to like reading her students assignments.

That's the most difficult thing for me to grade. I'm way to harsh on them.

I graduated with a double major in music and history. Two worthless things. But guess what, if you keep getting degrees in worthless areas of study, eventually you'll come out on top in that area and get some sweet gigs. That's what happened to me.

Either way, I highly recommend continuing to go to school after undergraduate if possible. It never hurts, really.

I don't even know why I have to take Macroeconomics and Microeconomics. I'm a social science education major only because they don't have a history education program.

*SHUDDER*

Congrats on doing better though. And economics has some pretty large effects on the way shit goes down throughout history. Having a general idea wouldn't hurt...

Mine almost seems the same right now (this economy blows for new hires). I mean, I'm graduating with a BS and an MS in Chemical Engineering and my GPA is currently a 3.54.

I'm actually sitting in our Student Center right now in between final exams. Just got done with one, have another at 11.

I'm pretty happy with myself as well - I've always carried around a 3.3/3.4 every semester, but have absolutely aced this spring - all while my work schedule has gone from 30 hours/week to over 60 hours a week.

I really didn't think I could pull it off, but barring a meltdown of epic proportions, I'm sitting pretty.

Funny, it looks like we have the same major as well. Congrats, man.
