December 5, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

From the Advisor:

Attention all good Hoyas!  I don’t know if you are aware, but you are THIS close to wrapping up the semester.

Sure, there are study days and one or two (or three or more) finals for you to complete, but then BLISS.  Hopefully, you can shut down your computer AND your brain.

That said, leave a little energy for exploring what’s “out there,” as there are a few deadlines coming up. Scroll, scroll to the bottom of the newsletter for spring and summer deadlines.  

Alas. Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say good night till it be…January 10th.

Ouch. I did butcher the good bard’s words.  Yes! Cawley will be on winter break.  But don’t despair.  We will all be back in January.  (Psst. I do believe I have a couple of appointment slots left, and I just might send a newsletter in early January.)

  • December 14th will be the last day for appointments.
  • Appointments will begin for all class years starting January 10th.

Good luck on your finals and have a safe and restful winter break.

When GPA No Longer Matters

In just the past five years, the percentage of employers screening candidates by grade point average (GPA) has been cut in half. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) latest ‘Job Outlook’ survey of employers, those who screen for GPA has dropped from 73% in 2018-19 to 37% in 2022-23.
