I am about to graduate from college with a BS degree in Psychology, but my overall GPA is 2.48.

I am a 24 year old young woman. I love animals and I want to work with animals in the wild or at a zoo. I am depressed because I am graduating with a low GPA. I feel like I just want to cut my brain in half. I really hate thinking and learning about anything. How can I stop feeling depressed? Should I develop new interests?

  • I wouldn't worry too much about your GPA. I can't think of any employer who ever asked me about my GPA. Its "Do you have a degree" not "do you have a degree with a GPA higher than 3.0" I graduated Summa Cum Laude and no one cares. =) Don't get too down on yourself. A degree is a piece of paper that says "I can learn"

  • Go about it positive...you have a degree...which is more than many can say. Be happy you have a 2.48 instead of a 2.0

  • i personally wouldn't want to go to a PSYCHOLOGIST who barely passed college with a 2.4 gpa....If you love animals maybe try a different route?

  • Go to school for something that you are interested it. Makes a difference in your GPA. I agree with the PP that said, I wouldn't want to go to a Psychologist that had a 2.4 GPA...not even passing for graduation in 2 programs for Psych that I am looking at enrolling in.
