    Here it is:

    I graduated (was never inelligeble for sports) with a 1.98 GPA

    I took all college prep classes including 4 yrs of French. 5x letterman in varsity sports.

    I was accepted into college based on my near perfect A.C.T. score.

    Ironically, I once blew .196 into a breathalizer and spent the night in jail.


    What you got? :D

    I never took the SAT. My ACT score was 34. I was 3x in wrestling and 2x in footaball. Wouda been 3x in football, but I had knee surgery that kept me out a little more than 1/2 the season my sophmore year. I quit playing baseball thru the school after my freshman year. I played in the summer leagues thru the American Legion. Heck, I even took French in college. Never finished the undergrad, but I got my share. :D

    I played football at 'bout 175# and wrestled at 155#'s. I squatted a tad over 500#. I was 'bottom heavy' as I only maxed bench at 235#. No lie, I was 1st team all league in division II football. My senior year in wrestling (3rd year overall) I blew an acl in the District tourney...I was ranked in the top 16 in the state. Blah, Blah, Blah. Glory days be gone...! ;)

    Dropped out of High School, enlisted at the tender age of 17. Along the way have acquired a GED. Also an AAS, BS, MS, cum laude. US Army Command & General Staff College, and a few other trade schools. Have retired twice, work for a good boss 1200 miles away that pays me well to do what I enjoy doing. Will probably retire a 3rd time in a couple of more years, but am having too much fun to quit.

    Finished high school with a 3.8 GPA and a scholarship not for my GPA but for baseball. I joined the USMC instead, imagine the rub that caused with my Dad a USMC vet. He wanted more for his sons (I'm a twin) my bother went to cainbridge and is a talented chef. I went to the USMC, eight years and in that time seen a lot of life, got a BS degree in engineering (something I honestly haven't used). Built my own business and did the first tour in the sand as a reserve LT. Different lives for two sons of a good man. It works. It's not so much about where you start as it where you end up and how you get there.

    I was kicked out of boyscouts for fighting. I was kicked out of a forced choir class for fighting. I was even made to transfer highschools for........wait for it....fighting! After graduating I lost my job for, ffiiiiiighting in a restaurant. I had issues :D

    Didn't want anything to do with school for a while, but eventually took some cnc programming classes and became a programmer/machinist and have been doing that for way too long.

    Don't remember my gpa in H.S. I was too busy.

    The place I work offers full paid education at my school of choice and doesn't have to be business related. I haven't taken advantage of it either. I'm too busy fighting.
