Yeah, I was trying to do it on a couple different sites and for some reason they weren't working. It doesn't help that my laptop can be incredibly slow from time to time.

So tell me how SCREWED this is...

1) In my Architecture class, my final grade was a C+. Never received a grade under B- in the class...
2) So for Chem, everyone's basically failing because the professor sucks so bad. So my average before the final was a 65, and they told us that taking the final could only boost our grade and not lower it. I signed a form saying I was OK with the grade that I had at the time (65). My lab TA also said we were getting a 10-15 pt curve on our final grade. So guess what. Take the final, idk wtf happens but my grade drops to a 58, and no curve. F*ck me, right?
3) I failed Calc, but that's already been dealt with.

For Architecture, email your prof and ask him how he calculated your grade.
And the chem,talk to an adviser or head of a department about it and find out what's going on.


Emailed my Architecture prof already.
I had a back and forth email with my TA last night and she assured me there'd be a curve... I'm going to wait until tomorrow morning and see what's going on.

What ended up happening with this situation Cheryl?

Only for your first job out of school and it depends on the job. Some companies won't even look at your resume unless you hit a threshold for GPA.

Our interns are like this. I think unless you have a 3.0 don't bother sending in a resume. Even if you lie they will ask you for your school transcript to validate the GPA you put on your resume.

What kind of business do you work for (no need to name it if you do not want to), and what was your college major?

What kind of things do you look for interns before you hire them (resume, interviews, etc.). What about after they get hired?

My GPA right now is a 3.7 out of 4. It is pretty good. I got lots of good friends and we help each other out big time. I probably could have gotten an even higher GPA. And I am a Management Information System (MIS) major.

I am trying to find a good summer internship.

I am trying to find a good summer internship.

I've touched a lot of industries (capital markets, insurance, credit cards, music). I have a degree in electrical and computer engineering. But most industries are the same in terms of what they are looking for.

Think of your GPA as the bare minimum requirement to get an internship. This is the easiest way for people to weed out the people who have potential to those who don't (I am not here to debate the merits of companies' weeding out process just telling you how it is).

After that the next thing people look for is do you have any previous experience, as in other internships. It is infinitely easier to get someone up to speed who is use to the work environment. If you don't, don't fret.

Other key points are what extracurricular activities have you done on or off campus that either relate to your major or that show you are a well rounded person. Also these extra curriculars hopefully show some type of leadership position. It is better to be the treasurer of a group than just a member.

Also, every intern resume I've seen has some generic objective "highly motivated, detailed oriented blah blah seeking blah blah position." If I see one more I am going to puke. Tailor it to the company you want. Read the position requirements then think of anything at all you have done in college or extra curriculars that fit those criteria they are asking for even if its loosely tied.

Here are some thing you should always always ask yourself before going into a new company. How does this company make money? The next question is , how does my position directly or indirectly affect/support the companies' bottom line. If you can answer this and answer it well in an interview you just stood out from tons of possible candidates.

Read the companies 10k to find out more about the company.

I have to do some work but this is I think a good basis. If you have anymore questions ask away hippie.

Oh and another thing before I forget. No one expects you to know anything. Like nothing at all. Honestly we hardly think you can staple correctly lol.

So once you get a position just make sure you learn as much as you can about the business. Make yourself available for anything and everything. Ask to come to meetings ONCE you have been there for a few weeks. Lastly be a likeable person. If I rank you on a scale of 1 to 10 as a 8 worker but a 1 personality and another person a 6 worker and a 8 personality I am going with the 6 worker.

So what do you think about someone like me?

High GPA, worked at a restaurant for many years, have an internship this semester at a small organization, I am only a member of couple of groups, few academic related awards, graduating next fall.

I'm trying to intern with a big company this summer.
