Can you be successful after college with a low GPA? Specifically in accounting/finance?
I'll be graduating soon and my major GPA is about a 2.3 and my cumulative is a 2.8. I know this is pretty low, but can I still be successful despite it? I didn't spend my college years getting drunk or whatever, I actually never attended a college party. I guess my GPA is so low because I get really depressed about ha;f way through college. It's not really an excuse, but what can I do.

I have been applying to many accounting jobs for 4 months. I have only been asked my GPA once and that was a government job. I haven't heard back from them at all but that is happening quite a bit in this job market. I am sure you will be fine. Good luck!
