Edward Rooney Dean of Students: Deep Contact: So just put down 3.84, no one checks.Yes, they do. And with more than a phone call for a lot of jobs. They want the official transcript.
Rostin: ChipNASA: Employers for the most part don't give a flying FARK what your GPA was, What Frat or Sorority you were in, what clubs you were in, DO YOU HAVE A PIECE OF PAPER??Good, check, move on.They also don't care if you spent $5,000 or $150,000 for your piece of parchment. THAT, my friends is YOUR problem.LEARN THIS, KNOW THIS, LIVE THIS.Unless you're from Duke, Hah-vard- or Yale or some such. They you're %1 and all of this is irreverent cause Daddy will pay for skoolAlmost every entry level job I've applied to has had a minimum GPA requirement. Back before I returned to school and I was on the other side of the interviewing table, I certainly cared, and my boss cared even more. The advice you are giving is dangerous and wrong, at least for engineering students.
