Younger readers, take care of your college grades. I tell you, they’ll haunt you forever …forever …FOREVER!
Because I’m with the academe, I can’t help it that every time I apply for a new job, be it part-time or full-time, I need to submit my Official Transcript of Records.
Although past is past, I still feel humiliated upon seeing those 4 pages of college grades. I repeated a majority of my math subjects, and the rest of my grades were on the edge. It’s like a scar which says, “Yes, in college, I was mediocre.”
As a teacher, I understand what grades can say about the student, but I also understand what grades don’t say about a student. Many times, the attitude students have towards school work is the one he or she carries to the work place; this is partially reflected by those marks.
