Anyway she's an idiot.
GPA is asked for on most job applications (even going the resume route still leaves the interview and sometimes a questionnaire). Not sure I can recall ever filling one out that didn't ask for both high school and college GPA's. And right now especially, due to the economy, employers can be (and are being) more selective with their hiring since they have plenty of qualified people applying for most positions, so I'm sure her GPA is coming into play and at least part of why she hasn't landed a job yet. Generally a degree is better than no degree, but a 4.0 is always better than a 2.7.
Agreed that atttendance is usually irrelevant though.
I guess that makes sense. I guess I'm thinking in the long run GPA's don't really come into play. I guess when your first job hunting, like Dan said, they don't really have much to judge you on other than your GPA huh?
I think it really depends on what field you're in though.
