Getting straight A's in college? Aiming for it?

I got to the article “Twentysomething: Why I regret getting straight A’s in college” from a link in some blog post. I really enjoyed reading the article- May be because i am not the one getting straight A’s or may be i enjoy reading such career related articles. Its about a person, slogging his time out to get A’s and as the article mentions he got 37 A’s and only 3 B’s. Can one imagine that? I cannot :( Even i know people who are so obsessed with the grades ;) Anyways coming back to the article the author has put forward his experiences of being someone with loads of A’s to his credit. At the end of the article the author mentions that anyone looking for a masters should stay away from the post. Even i want to say the same thing. People aiming for masters- Stay Away- I need not do that- As i am not going for masters ;)

  1. Straight A’s isn’t that big of a deal when it comes to getting into grad school. I actually pulled off a perfect 4.0 in undergrad, and only got accepted by 2 out of 8 grad schools. Probably because I was overconfident in myself and didn’t study for the GRE hardly at *all* :P Here’s the article I wrote about my own four-point-ohh experience: http://www.xamuel.com/straight-a/
