At the moment, I am attending AMU (American Military University). I have taken a handful of classes so far, all resulting with A's. The last class, however, I am going to receive a B-. It wasn't that the class was hard, but I became unmotivated during the last portion of the class. I knew that I would come out with at least a B. Next time, I will not let myself go like that again. Does a GPA hold a lot of weight in the civilian world/ military (going warrant)? I have heard the answer to the question: "What do you call a doctor who passed with D's? A doctor." quite a few times.

I think you are being a little hard on yourself, but sounds like you found some motivation. I think employers care more about the quality of the university and the relevance of the degree rather than the GPA.

"I think employers care more about the quality of the university"; sir, sometimes I wonder how AMU is perceived. I know it is nationally and regionally accredited. I have seen many positive and negative responses by current/ past students; I think I will probably stick with it. I just hope it's worth all the time and TA that is being spent to get it.

I had a 4.0 undergrad and likewise with my masters - not once has someone asked me my GPA.
