Going Beyond the GPA

If Your College GPA is Not a True Measure of Future Success, What is?

Balancing GPA, with everything elseI was once an Assistant Professor of English at the US Air Force Academy for 7 years and I’m here to tell you that I think it’s great if you’re making good grades.

I’m also saying, a good GPA will only take you so far.

Now, this is either good news or bad news, depending on how you see it.

I tell students my goal is to help the them “Cash in on the College Investment.”

The goal of getting maximum ROI (have you heard that business term before?  It means “return on investment.”) is to launch a great career upon graduation from college.

Which means what?

To get the most return on your college investment, you:

A) Have grades good enough to stay in college

B) Have grades good enough to inspire your teachers to want to help you make the right contacts in the ‘real world.’

C) You do all you can to prepare for that job while still in school

D) All of the above

The answer?  D of course.

Success goes beyond the grades.  So make sure you’re living a balanced life with this in mind.
