College Grades

I did very well in college physics, math and astronomy classes, getting mostly As. During my first two years, my GPA was 3.95 but this dropped to 3.64 during my last two years when I was taking very hard physics and math courses.

During my college years, I found the time to take advanced classes in a language, ancient history, and nuclear engineering just to relieve the monotony of just taking physics and math classes all the time. I was also thrilled to take advanced classes in astronomy during my Junior and Senior years.

Sadly, I missed graduating Phi Beta Kappa by less than one tenth of a grade point. The cutoff was 3.70. I was incredibly annoyed by this, and blamed it all on two courses I had taken that were not even required for my major in astronomy!
