That's the truth, eventually it's all about experience.

Read experience as length of time doing said job...not that you are "experienced" or know what the hell you're doing. :-D

IF she was to apply for a job working at my company she has almost 0% chance of getting hired now that she has made this lawsuit.

This is only one field, but in the 20 or so interviews I went on when looking for a teaching job, never once was I asked about my High School, Undergrad, or Graduate GPAs. Granted, it's only one field as I said above, but I've never heard of it being asked when any of my friends were looking for jobs, either.

(talking about recent grads /entry level below... guessing it changes as you progress in career)

I don't think they ever ask you about it in an interview, but I'm guessing it is primarily used as a screening method to get rid of a large percentage of applications right off the bat. Many of the companies I interviewed with expressly stated that they are not interested if you don't have a 3.0 (and in some cases a 3.5....) Of course it varies by industry, some have much more competitive interview processes.

I'm pretty sure standard practice is to include your GPA on your resume if it is over 3.0 and leave it off if below hehe... If I saw a resume w/o a GPA listed I would probably assume it was pretty low.

Here are my GPAs:
High School - 3.91
Undergrad - 2.69
Graduate - 3.92

Do you know anything more about me now? :-)

When I applied for my first full-time gig, I was only asked about my GPA from the management consulting firms I applied for and... by Google. I take it they only ask you for your GPA - if they ever ask for it - in your first round of interviews, but beyond that, I'd be surprised if they questioned about GPA later on.

Yeah, exactly. Mark down 3.0+ and keep it movin' is a pretty good idea in corporate USA. Why exclude yourself from consideration before they even get to meet you? If you nail the interview, then GPA is about the last thing most employers, in my experience are going to check on. Now lying about various crimes, your college degree (having one) or recent drug use could be quite a problem no matter what you did in the interview.

I'm in the application process for the California Highway Patrol at the moment and get to do written tests, physical tests, mental exams and drug tests, and that's just to go to the acadamy, which is more like a boot camp that you can fail out of. In all honesty, I'm sure they're just happy to see "have degree" when reading a bio these days for the CHP. I'm not sure I'd fudge on a state or fed application about my GPA though, they might actually take the extra step of requesting transcripts. In fact, I know they do.

This is absolutely correct. Under no circumstances should you put your GPA on your resume if it's below 3.0.
