He lied about his college GPA

During The Howard Stern Show, Howard revealed Sal lied about his college GPA. 

According to Howard, Sal claimed he had a 3.9 GPA in college but to know if his claim was right, he got a hold of his transcripts. 

In 2020, Sal claimed that he received a 3.9 GPA in college before he dropped out. 

He claimed that he was studying to be an X-Ray technologist, was a science major, and did anatomy and physics. 

So Howard got in touch with the Suffolk Community College, the college which Sal attended, to find out the truth. 

So the truth was that Sal enrolled at Suffolk Community College in the spring of 1989, where there were no classes taken in 1991, and he attended the college until the fall of 1992

In the fall of 1989, he only took only two classes and didn’t pass either of them. 

He received a D+ in Anatomy and unsatisfactory in Algebra 1 and finished the semester with a 0.0-grade point average. 

In the Spring of 1992, Sal buckled down and received a B+ in both the classes and the subjects he took were semester standard freshman composition and intro to psychology. 

He managed to bring 3.5 for that semester. According to Sal’s transcript, he finished school with a 2.3 GPA. So it was a lie.

When asked about why he lied, Sal tried convincing them, asking if he would have continued like his final semesters, which was 3.5

He added that he had proven that he pulled a 3.5, so he could do it, asking them to look at the track record where he went from 0 to 2.3 to 3.5

Howard then asked what he would say if people asked him about his record, to which Sal replied non of your F***ing business would be his answer.

Howard stated the reason behind calling him out. It was like stolen valor because a 3.9 GPA meant he was a straight-A student. 

Sal then said his last two-semester was 3.5, so he was off by only four. Robin added that nobody is asking you, but the whole thing has to be counted. 

Howard again asked if he knew how long it would have taken him to graduate with only taking two classes a semester and also asked what was he planning to do? 

Sal said he was planning his feet wet and that he was testing the waters one class at a time. To which Howard humorously added, You were testing the waters, and you drowned.
