I would think that "being smart" would include some component which involves knowing what to boast about, when, and to whom, so that one avoids appearing to not be very smart among people who know better.

I'm not sure a 3.1 is even a second class degree, after the conversation. Though I'm not sure I would understand someone boasting about a 1:1, 20 years down the line.
I'm not even going to try and break down why having "only" 10% of a system's agents offending or facilitating offenses isn't boastworthly. I trust everyone reading this can process how unacceptable that figure is. I rather hope it's been blue skyed.
It's a matter of perspective. When that 10% is an internal improvement over the historic 60%, and when 30% of ones personal acquaintances are offenders, one wants to brag about 10%.

<quoted text>There is more to being smart than what your GPA is. I've known people with a 4.0 that could not make Kraft mac and cheese. Smart is a culmination of education, street smarts, admitting you don't know the answer, but you know where to find the answer.
You are preaching to the choir, sweetheart. I think your comment should be directed to the guy who uses his 3.1 undergraduate GPA as "proof" of his intellectual superiority.

That comment, in the midst of this conversation, proves which side of the line you belong and why you are impressed with Georgie's 3.1.

Never have been impressed by a GPA. My at work husband, God rest his soul, was one of the smartest people I know and taught be a poop load that has helped me succeed. Life experience made him successful. Hubby, trade school, a class here and there, has traveled extensively with his job and has made more dinero than me for the past 15 years. He almost dropped out of high school, I had a 4.0 in college...

A GPA is a number, it is what you garner from your education, whether it is from life or from books. A combo is the best.

Got it, stupid?

Well thank you Glitter.

Hi Glitter! Could you kindly tell us urban folk what a "poop load " is! How much would that be? A shovel full or a wheel barrow full?

3.1, 4.0...yada, yada, yada. That's good for getting one a nice desk job in some cubicle, but it doesn't prepare a person to deal with life in a common sense manner.

There's been countless times I've crossed paths with college grads that didn't know how to check the oil in their car, or how to start a lawnmower! Try using a pair of pliers with one hand ...forgetaboutit!

A "well rounded " education is not just predicated on a GPA score, but a continuing experience of learning over the coarse of a lifetime.

I'll bet George a dollar against his entire years salary, that my well of information and knowledge surpasses his 10 over, hands down.

America's days are bleek to say the least. We are producing a generation of educated dummies.
Thank God there's still people around that knows the difference between a bottle of oil and a bottle of transmission fluid.

Proving one's intellect and ability might be better done through the development and production of intelligent thought and speech, rather than through announcing that one has secured a modest grade at a modest school as proof of ability.
Talking to scholars coming out of top schools, I've never really heard anyone namecheck their universities in an effort to suggest that this should prove the fitness of their ideas, rather than having their ideas stand alone on their merits.
A "modest" school...LOL! That's a hoot, especially from someone afraid to disclose where they attended.

I'll take your bet, Stymie. I grew up in the '70s when nearly every kid actually had a father at home and learned things that kids today couldn't do to save their lives.
As for your "well of knowledge" we're all products of our environments and experiences. You know how to score weed in your hood. But can you travel in France and not need English and futile hand gestures?
We're all different.

So far as my GPA, to attend a graduate program in the UK you generally must have a second class (2:1) or first class (1:1) degree. I'm not entirely sure of the conversion from GPA (it can vary pretty wildly depending on the program) but have never heard of anything less than a 3.5 being worth sending off to NARIC for a conversion.

Similarly, I could hardly have gotten into my program without an undergraduate and MA level studies at institutions that weren't recognized globally. Though my MA carries a bit less flash here than it does in Asia, with it being less well known.

Sneering for me to dish *my* qualifications to match up to yours seems a bit grasping, given again the modest nature of your figures.
