    Is 3.25 a good college GPA?

    It'll probably be higher at the end of the semester, but last semester my easiest class F'd it up, got a C.

    I am already in college guys, at a university, I want to transfer to a bigger one(mainly UTexas)

    ( College sophomore)

    not bad. I've had to maintain a 3.25 in electrical engineering for my scholarship which isn't easy.

    currently have a 3.4 after 7 semesters
    Current PRs @ 170 (No wraps or belt)
    Bench = 275
    Dead = 450
    Squat = 350 approx.

    PRs prior to UC and surgeries
    Bench = 315
    Dead = 525
    Squat = 430

    don't listen to all these e-overachievers

    3.25 is well above the average (depending on your program and major)...most grad schools will consider you if all your other areas are up to par

    If that's at the U of South Dakota, your majoring in education, and you're trying to get into NYU Med, then no. If that's at Princeton, you're a math major, and you're trying to get a job at your local insurance agency, it should cut it.

    ie, what school do you go to, what's your major, and what do you want to do afterwards?

    3.25 is good enough. It's above average for incoming college freshmen at least. You might not get all the scholarships though. Your gpa is most useful for getting money, you shouldn't worry too much about getting accepted it's a lot easier than they make it out to be in high school. Although not necessary I recommend keeping your gpa above a 3.0 cause that's a common cutoff for scholarships.

    Just so everyone is clear your highschool gpa isn't important for grad school (at least not directly). They'll look at your college gpa.

    edit -- Oops ok lol I read over too fast thought he was in high school trying to get into college.

    I dunno how difficult those schools are to get into... but the guy below is wrong, somewhat.

    It is not well above average AT ALL. It is maybe slightly above average--average being roughly 2.75 to 3.0, however, anything under 3.0 is no longer average. Yes, maybe it is middle of the road at middle of the road schools, but just because the average student slacks off and can't do schoolwork doesn't mean it's average in the sense that it "isn't that bad."

    If you can't get above a 3.0, you are not average, you probably lack work ethic or time management or something.

    So, 3.25 is fine, I'd say maybe slightly above average, BUT...

    Is it good enough to get into good schools? No.

    Good, as in top schools that is, and why not be an "e-overachiever?" Or an actual overachiever. Those are the ones who succeed.

    You can get into decent schools with that--as long as you have other things going for you, but you will be middle of the road. Depending on the school you go to and the caliber of the students, you will see that 3.25 GPA is going to good in some places, and kinda poor in others.

    But always try to do your best, if you are doing that, be happy.

    generally...

    2.8 = avg
    3.0 = your parents wont kill you
    3.2 = decent, better than most
    3.4 = solid grades to get a decent job
    3.5 = the benchmark for saying you have a really good GPA
    3.7 = really damn good, either really smart or a management major
    >= 3.9 = a shoo in for pretty much any grad school/job unless youre going to community college

    Also, what GPA is this?

    Are you including gym class and crap like that (high school right?)??

    Are you including AP classes, because those are on a 5.0 school sometimes.

    3.25 is like low 80's, right? That's not horrible, but nor is it good. On the level of kids trying to do well, it's middle of the road. If you aim at A's, you should be considering low 80's as average at best. And 70's would be basically failing.

    You are in high school though. You have time to develop yourself in college.

    And, if you want, consider transfering if you get into college and do well.

    Also, with regards to college, listen to me here...

    SAVE YOUR MONEY!

    Do not go to a school that is more than 10k a year tuition. That means no private schools or out of state schools. It's dumb. There are plenty of schools that are great in state (usually) and you should try to go to schools with scholarships. Unless you are going to Wharton business school and wanna be an i-banked, you learn the same from nearly every qualified school. You will have fun at nearly any school as long as you meet people you like. It's a waste to find this "right fit" bull**** people talk about.

    Save the thousands of dollars and buy something else that will actually be of use...

    x2... listen to this guy.

    Ya just gotta realize "average" is only average based on the morons in high school and college that have no work ethic, time management skills, drink/party/etc. It's not truely average as in what you should be happy with. You are middle of the road in terms of being an idiot with no work ethic. That's not average in my mind. The last thing you want is to be average in regards to stupid kids in high school/college... and no employer down the road wants that type of "average" either. Average is only in relation to that population of kids... and the population of high school and college students, average is pretty damn low.

    Yeah in all honesty you only need average grades. I remember my english teacher in high school who had just graduated was commenting how she had a really high gpa and it didn't make much of a difference compared to her friends who graduated with 2.5s. It mostly helps with scholarships or other special things in school like coop or getting summer jobs. But once you graduate it doesn't matter that much.

    You want to get a good job? Get decent grades, but work on getting work experience. This is far more important to most employers than a high GPA. Concentrate on finding a good internship that you are interested in. Alos, it's no what you now, but who you know. Work on you personal skills, the first job you get won't be your last, build a strong foundation.
