    school and college were frustrating experiences because everything was easy.
    like, mind-numbingly easy.
    it felt like a betrayal to even try.

    In high school, 9th/10th grade were bad, I think one quarter I had a 1.1 GPA. I matured a little going into 11th grade and actually started to make some effort and give a damn. At that point on I was a A/B student.

    Grade 1-8 I was a prodigy.
    Grade 9-11 I was middle of the pack.
    Grade 12 - University I had straight A's.
    Law school I was middle of the pack.

    Now I'm a below average lawyer.

    As in the last 2 years of university. mainly B+ because i spent more time sleeping in, partying, and chatting up girls at the library.

    in high school, i coasted with a B+ because it was not cool to be a nerd. definitely hung out with the wrong crowd.

    I was the kind of underachiever the teachers hated.

    I got Mostly Bs and Cs but with little to no effort, so could easily have done better if I tried harder.

    Well, we know you didn't get an A in grammar, OP. It's "grade A student".

    let's see.
    i skipped 8th grade since i was given the option to do so.
    i was so bored with school, i stopped doing homework around the 9th grade.
    the 11th grade, i basically cut out half the year, and only showed up for tests (all of which i aced much to my teachers chagrin).
    i ended up getting thrown out HS my senior year, and went to an experimental night HS a couple years later.

    i fucking owned the computer programming classes i took a few years later when i started to look into getting into the IT field, though i don't do computer programming professionally now (decided sitting in front of a computer for 7-12 hours a day coding wasn't my thing).

    Not surprising that Sherdog's GPA is a bit like it's bench press. Who'd have thought this place had so many curve setters, people for whom school was laughably easy, and prodigies? I certainly never would have guessed! ;)

    Graduated 5 years of high school with a 2.13 GPA. Standard D - C grades. I own my own house (67,000 left to pay currently listed at 180,000) drive a 2016 car (16,000 left to pay) I ditched high school to hit the arcade and get high with friends all the time hence 5 years high school. I have 0 college and a 53k a year job. All pretty average stuff but $0 debt other than the house and car.

    All hail mediocrity!

    Life is good.
    (Yes I'm bragging about my totally average life and I'm very ok with it)
