[Don't] be so fixated on grades you lose sight of the fact that it's the learning that matters. Ten years after graduation, you probably won’t remember your GPA-nor will potential employers ask you for it. They'll be more interested in your skills, demeanor and work ethic and your ability to learn the essentials of the job. -Deborah Rudacille
