Like I said, graduating with a low GPA will not get you very far after college. The right connections are another story. Since you bring up Bill Gates, why do wrestlers even go to college? Gates doesn't even have a degree.
I am sticking with my view that with a high GPA you got a chance if you are not anti-social but even if you don't have connections. With a low GPA, you better learn to kiss ass big time and hope someone gives you a hand to lick.
In any case, I hope we can at least agree that judging by top ten academic wrestling team scores, wrestlers as a whole are no academic world beaters and we can all hope top ten academic teams would have GPAs of at least 3.3 and higher.
I mean what are GPAs of Cornell, U Penn, Harvard and Columbia teams? Below 3.0? Why did they go to such tough schools then?
