yep... at UW anyone with marks less than 85% = sh*t in the eyes of profs...
(Edit: the above statement is the opinion of its author and does not reflect the opinions of anyone else /any other group in the world)
btw... i can confirm ATI gives 50%... nvidia similar... know people who did coop terms at those two places
Sadly, once you graduate the only thing that matters is your little peice of paper that says "degree". Dont kill yourself with acedemics. Have fun in college, it should be some of the best times of your life =)
