    Nice read. If someone asks me "how many golf balls can you fit in an airplane" my answer will always be "I don't know and I don't want to know".

    If you want to guarantee you'll get the job, respond with "The more important question is, how many golf balls can I fit in my mouth?", then pull 3 or 4 golf balls out of your pocket and put them in your mouth.

    I think it shows utility. Not only did you have the tools for the job, you showed your spatial and situational awareness too.

    That sounds par for the course. Whether you earned a 3.2 or a 3.8 GPA matters to employers where you're a new graduate. After 5-10 years, they're mostly content to know the type of degree and the school you got it from.
