Quite a few years ago, Myspace wanted my high school transcripts for a 
chief scientist job (at the then-soon-to-be-created Myspace labs).  I 
had graduated from high school in 1985, 20+ years before this position 
was even an inkling in my eye.

They also didn't really believe I had a 4.0 for my PhD courses nor a 
3.71 for my MS courses.  In fact the HR person at News Corp was 
downright skeptical that I had that high of a GPA.  I think she knew 
something I didn't.
