How important is gpa in college? How did it factor into you getting your current job? I don't find learning material difficult, but testing is killing me. I was so rushed these first few college exams. I understand the material very well. My style of working is carefully checking each result, organizing, and making sure everything is in order. But it takes me so much time just to think about the problem such as in calc II, that I hardly have time to write it out and actually solve it. Eventually I get the answer, but I always find myself short on time. I'm despairing just a bit. I am determined and willing to work until results are produced. And I have no intention at all of switching majors, or giving up on engineering.....but..... I just want to know from those of you who have been here before, how important is gpa? Will I have no future as an (aero) engineer if my testing abilities are so bad, my gpa is lowered?
