Forum Post: Fair Shaire of GPA

O.K. here is the deal. My GPA is 2.5 and my SAT is 1500. I have worked really hard and I think I will have my GPA up to a 3.0 by the end of the semester, but even a 3.0 with a 1500 isn't high enough to get into any of the programs I want.

I'm hoping n' to change my dilemma if I can just find a few high rollers who have earned a 4.5 and who can clearly afford to give me some of their GPA points to do so. ( I mean who really needs a 4.5)

And, I'm also asking some of the highest achieving students who are rolling in SAT scores over a 2000, to pay their fare share by giving me some of their SAT score so that I can get into the program I need to get into.

So, all I am saying is that all of those who have done well should pay your fair shair. Its only fiar.

To quote Obama, who quoted Jesus, "To whom much is given much is required." So I am sure that everyone on this forum who is for income redistribution will be more than willing to help me out here.

Don't worry about it. There's always barbers school.

Did they change the SATs to have a higher maximum than 1600? That's an honest question. Now I'm going to extend your silly and overwrought metaphor by suggesting that for a lot of us, this is more about about wondering why anybody should be bothered to do their homework for Business Ethics, Poli Sci, or Business Law when Goldman Sachs just got away with investing against a disastrous plan they promoted to their own customers and then provably perjured themselves in front of congress about it without a peep from the Justice Department after a congressional panel actually (surprisingly refreshing behavior on congress's part) bothered to investigate and find solid written evidence of said perjuring douchebaggery. I have a job by the way. I'm a programmer. Never graduated.

Erik, I totally agree with you. It's so discouraging. I am extremely frustrated with the Justice Department. It's become so political it's sickening. My post was a very silly and overwrought metaphor, but I just don't agree that the answers can be found in bigger, nanny state government and I think Obama's income redistribution, Obamacare and in his energy policies and general socialistic ideology are all horrible for the country. I am not saying we don't need an energy policy, that we don't need changes in our health care system, that the GOP is great, that there shouldn't policies in place that make it tougher for speculators to manipulate the market, that tax loop holes don't need to closed up or that other changes need to be made in our tax system, but Obama's policies are not the answer. I believe that if he is elected again a generation or two is going to have an extremely difficult time and it will be particularly bad for people who don't have high tech skills or a college education in a marketable major.

To me Obama's claim to be the most transparent administration just means that he, Erik Holder etc. are more blatant about how political they are in ALL decisions- they don't even bother to try to hide their "douchebaggery" and arrogance. Their style is intimidation through power and its been most prevalent in pretty much all the stances & actions that the Justice dept has taken since day one when they refused to prosecute the black panthers in what was obvious voter intimidation. The stimulus was just basically nearly a trillion dollars spent on Obama's ideological pet projects and political donors. Although all Americans are impacted by his policies its those in their 30's, 20's and younger (and their children) whose lives will be mostly impacted by the Obama's never ending spending and the greedy policies on both sides of the isle. (Don't even get me started on his foreign policies) BTW The new SAT format range is 600 to 2400.
