If heading to Grad school it is essential, but otherwise, depending on your field, the GPA is pretty useless.
Then once you get a few years of experience, depending on your region, what school it was doesn't even matter any more.
Of course, I am in the inverse situation. After going back to school, I had like a 3.85 GPA, and it is now on a steady decline, and I am on academic probation.
Of course, in a new field, I would never make what I am making now after 30 years in government IT, even if I get a Masters... So, I am really in it for fun.
EDIT: It was kind of fun to tell the board that if an old fat guy who got his AA with honors, and going for his BS can survive bad grades that I think the University could survive it.
