College is more about relationships & what you learn.
Nobody ever asked me about my grades. It was far more about what I accomplished and what I learned.
What's the secret to getting to know famous people?

College is a great place to meet smart, talented people.
Develop relationships and stay in touch with them. Stay top of mind. Use excuses to get in touch.
Birthdays are a great way to stay in touch.
I used to send birthday emails. In the Facebook age, you should still send a personalized message. Giving people phone calls goes a long way. Phone calls stand out in an age where nobody calls.
Follow this advice and you'll be well on your way
