Senior Year Grades - Important to keep grades up?Subscribe
Is it important to actually keep my grades up senior year? I've gotten extremely lazy and find studying to get anything beyond a B really difficult. I had a solid 3.8 GPA junior year during recruiting, although it's been gradually falling ever since. If I continue to exert zero effort, I will probably finish college with around a 3.5...if I put in a lot of effort, I could finish with a high 3.6 or 3.7. I would obviously rather not do schoolwork and continue to have a great time with friends, etc. but will finishing school with around a 3.5 affect my chances during PE/HF recruiting 2 years down the road or for business school admissions? I will be working for a top bank (think MS, Blackstone etc.) and graduating from Wharton...do my grades from here on out really matter?
