Notes From the Fieldby Martin Weil

Yes, HS Grades DO Matter

The Washington Post cites a U. of Miami study showing the relationship between HS GPA and annual adult earnings. Each added point of GPA by itself translates into a 12-14% greater annual salary, regardless of higher education. Of course, a higher GPA also means a far greater likelihood of graduating college with even further earnings potential. (Lastly, the large disparity in this study between men and women’s earnings is unmistakeable)
