How to explain GPA drop?
During my freshman year I was in the top 1% (not that smart, just studied a lot) but I honestly lost motivation, as I feel I am not really learning anything useful, and I prioritised other stuff that I enjoy more.
My GPA is not terrible, it's the minimum required, but now I'm just leveraging the award they gave me for being in the top 1%.
I was wondering how you would explain this in an interview? I doubt telling the truth (that I just couldn't be asked to study that much, and thus, going out less) is a good idea.
I come from a "good" non-target.
