Roommate my freshman year got all Fs in first semester. He stayed drunk all the time, rarely even went to class.

Didn't come back.

A girl in the dorms stopped going to class in September for the entire year. Funniest part was the future Obama supporter always complained about not having any money. When we told her to get a job at McDonalds, across the street, she was disgusted and said she would "never work a job like that".

It's fine really. If you didn't take many EE courses when you screwed up, then you can have a strong major GPA and flaunt that.

If you keep making mostly A's, your GPA will improve quickly.

As someone else said though, GPA is just a number that holds much less value in the real world than some people make it out to be. It doesn't account for trends and improvements you've made recently. Can't let something like that define you.


I've been part of hiring several other new EEs for TVA. GPA isn't a big consideration even for your first job. After your first job, no one gives a shite about it.

No, Obama is one of the smartest presidents we've ever had. Going by that logic, if she was stupid she'd be a Bush supporter.

Tldr, but if Bush was smart, my dog is a genius. He might have been the dumbest president in US history. The idiot could barely speak.

The VP of our divison graduated with a 2.0. Guy is smart, has great vision, solid management style, likable, works harder than anyone i know and plays hard too. He said he wasn't a good test taker. I know alot majors it's all about GPa. But GPA doesn't always give the complete story. Oh btw he makes 250k a year not including options

My comment had nothing to do with Obama not being intelligent. He is a genius for how he got elected the second time.

The original point was that girl didnt go to class and wasn't willing to work but STILL bitched about not having money. That 0.0 GPA is why the story was included on this topic.

re: Worst GPA you've ever heard of?


i graduated in engineering with a 2.03.
Have a great job with a big company.
I started working in my 3rd year, an actual real job that started in the summer and turned into a full time position, so i was working minimum of 32 hours a week and going to school. I was making good money and went to work instead of class a lot. Figured i'd just coast through college with as little effort as possible and continue working where i was at. Dumb idea. Ended up having to quit that job after about 2.5 years and concentrate on school. took me 7 years to graduate.

re: Worst GPA you've ever heard of?


I got buck shot my 1st semester @ Ole Miss due to attendance requirement. I made all Cs but missed too many classes. Made a 3.5 next Spr and ended graduating in the 2s.

A side note: an oriental student killed himself for making a F my freshman year.
