To start, I am a sophomore studying mathematics at Penn State under the systems analysis option and going for a minor in economics and statistics. I tried to chose my degree to be most applicable to what I thought there would be a job demand for. So far, I have not put full effort into my classes and just now getting done with my calc and proof writing classes my GPA is less than I would have hoped (2.78 to be exact). Over the next 2 years I hope to pick it up to a 3.0, but what will that .2 difference make? In reality the only difference between a C and a B is only extra memorization in short term memory. So my question is should I or should I not be too worried about my GPA? Will I still get opportunities if I have a 2.5-3.0 or should I spend the next two years of my college life trying to pick it up as much as possible?
