    Hey guys, if you could please answer these questions I would greatly appreciate it!

    1. About how many hours of exercise do you get per week? This includes weight training, jogging, brisk walking, playing a sport, basically anything that gets you moving.

    2. What was your GPA (Grade Point Average) during the last semester of school?

    Thanks for your time.

    EDIT: If you are a college freshman and don't yet have a GPA, report your high school GPA.

    Are you referring to cumulative GPA?

    If you're taking a snapshot of one semester of school (especially the last)... whatever results you obtain are going to be completely skewed... and will be meaningless.

    Also, are you assuming people responding to these questions are still in school?

    My GPA from my freshman year of college? No idea, but my grades (A+,C+, A+, B, B+, B-) probably indicate a mid-3 or something like that. I got a few hours a day from my Rugby training and from tennis.

    Now, my GPA at my new Uni is like a 3.6 give or take .2 or so, and I go to the gym for 1 1/2 -2 1/4 hours a day, at minimum 5 days a week.

    I probably get... 4-5 hours of excercise a week if I didn't make it to the courts, and about 7 if I did. GPA is 4.00/4.00 unweighted.

    I currently exercise 10-12hours per week. Back when I graduated from IU, my GPA was 3.89 & I exercised 0 hours per week, but worked 40.

    I'm no longer in school... but my cumulative GPA after 4 degrees (AS, AA, BS and MS) is 3.8

    I've always worked out (gym, jogging, racquetball or tennis) for 10-12 hours per week since about the age of 17 or so.

    Then what kind of GPA should I be looking at? The overall GPA that people have obtained throughout the years?
