They were right.

Here's one thing I have realized once I started working: When mom said that getting good grades will make you rich, they were right. And I mean literally. My company's HR department stuck my no-so-great GPA right into some kind of formula to come up with my current salary, which... isn't all that fantastic.

So, when your mom tells you to study hard because it'll give you a better life, trust them. They speak the truth.

PS. Why didn't I negotiate? I.. didn't have any leverage to do so. Fresh-out-of-college, no other job offers... Sadness. *sigh*
