The most important advice I would give my high school self about college is that grades are important, very important, but learning is much, more important than the ultimate letter grade received in a class. When I was in high school, my grade point average was extremely important because it led to scholarships for college; unfortunately, I worked so hard in high school and stressed so much over having perfect grades there and in college, I became ill and was forced to withdraw from school. After over a decade in the workforce, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to return to college, and this time I realize that the experience and the knowledge I will gain from college are much more important than my final grade point average. I have confidence in my intelligence, determination, and work ethic, so if I receive less than an A in a class, I will still have done my best, and as long as I learn the things I need to learn from the class, my best is good enough.
