Let’s discuss math, specifically writing student math. For some students, their grades don’t matter as long as they are passing with a high enough GPA to keep any financial aid they qualify for. Ultimately, most post-collegiate employers don’t care what your GPA was as long as you have your degree. I am decidedly not one of those students. I anguish over my grades and take a lot of pride in the hard work that goes into a high GPA.
