Many employers today have so many applicants they are looking at GPA's and will not hire people who did poorly in school. It does speak to their ability so I can see why they do this. My sister is in HR she won't even look at applicants with less than a 3.5 GPA now. She said before when they had trouble finding people it was a bit different but now they can be more choosy in who they hire and have upped the standards by a lot. If you are only qualified to do an 8 dollar an hour job then that is what you do. I would not go to college if you don't have the academic ability. You will simply live your life on the 8 bucks an hour. Might mean you only have one child and you don't have a lot of extras but if you can provide the basics nothing wrong with that.

Every job application I fill out (for teaching) wants my GPA. I am glad I graduated with honors, for there is a shit load of competition in my field. OP both scenarios you list SUCK imo.
