I just wanted to apologize to anyone who was offended by the reference to marketing in my comments. I chose marketing in my example because many marketing students take positions in sales. I chose to use a salesman (or person) because I know of a few who have accumulated great wealth by manipulating and exploiting people. I only spoke from experience. And yes, those corrupt people whom I know majored in marketing and skimmed through college to get their degrees. I do not believe that marketing is an easy field of study. It is both complex and interesting, in my opinion. I am not biased against business. Most of my friends and family are "businesspeople", and I love them. I do feel that people can find more opportunities to corrupt, manipulate, and exploit other people in business. Any environment in which vast amounts of money change hands produces such evils, in my opinion. Lastly, if a GPA doesn't measure a student's academic performance, or the average of how well a student does throughout his or her college career, what does it measure? Does it measure how poorly his or her professors are performing? Does it measure how well parents are raising their children? Does it measure society? I suppose a GPA could measure all of these things. But,if I put all of my efforts into a class, learned everything the professor tried to teach me, wrote the correct answers on the tests and homework, completed all of my projects correctly and did everything else that was required on the syllabus, and earned an "A", then yes, my grade reflected my academic performance. If I did that in every class for four years and I had earned a 4.0, then yes, my GPA would measure my academic performance. So, Mr. Steiger, what do you think? What does all of this mean to you?
