Re: How much does GPA really matter?
IT is kind of a strange arena... they usually care more about experience than a degree. Mainly because most of the actual 'technical' schooling you received was probably already outdated before you graduated. Some of the foundations like systems analysis and what not don't change much however.
Every job I have applied for only cared if I had one or not. In fact, most didn't even care what the degree was in, just as long as you had it. Certainly no one cared what my GPA was. It was just a checkbox; "Education Level Completed - College".
Now, that doesn't mean that in the interview it wouldn't come up.
It also seems that people that really care about it usually went to "better" colleges. That's just my observations...
