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.
As I expected, you've got nothing.

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.
You are spot on, WA. And a wall full of degrees does not equal having 'people skills' and ethics.

I would say George is very 'well rounded.' Not within the 'educated dummies' you refer to. I know the type, doesn't inlcude George.

Thank God for the parents He gave me, that valued education, but also practical experience.

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?
Has something happened to hubby?

I notice you are discussing him in the past tense?

Well, in George's case, we know that those aren't much to brag on either.

Check your pants. Gauge from there.

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.
France? Sorry, I don't eat snails and buttered croissants! I'm quite surprised that you'd pick a very "socialist "country to brag about the language you learned in high school!

I don't do drugs (barely take aspirin), but if I did it wouldn't be to difficult to score weed and a French hore without speaking their language.

George is a button pusher/ statistical analyst nerd. Outside of his field of work and hockey, he's a fish gulping for water on dry sandy beach.

Yeah. I got it the first time you wrote it. What you didn't get is that you should be telling that to the guy who is bragging about his 3.1, not me.

Oh--not familiar with the concept of an at-work husband.

Sorry for expressing my concern.

Yeah, I've only recently started hearing it as well. Is it a new phrase or just class bound?
