    Yeah dog eat dog, until you idiots get caught. Then you'll find yourself 100k in student debt, with a 1500/month apt and without a job.

  • JackDole1029's picture

    But you'll be fired when HR finds out. I mean is you have a 3.2 and bump it to 3.5 you will be fired and then blacklisted on the st.

    Um, lots of people care what it takes to get the job. That's what 90% of the people here want to know.

    even if you do get caught and don't lose your job you pretty much destroy any credibility you ever had.

    Who cares? You're already graduated at that point.

    I thought that isn't allowed. Isn't the only way anyone other than yourself can get your grades thru an official transcript sent to them?

    You realize that the biggest risk is being fired and blacklisted, and that this risk doesn't go away over time.

    I work for an LBO fund that recently purchased a company. As part of the screening process, each of the company's top 13 executives received background checks. As it turned out, one of the 13 (who was a general manager of just one of the company's nine operating divisions - executive #12) employees had lied about his GPA and graduating honors (cum laude). His lie wasn't even substantial - he'd added +0.4 to his actual GPA.

    We currently own the business, and executive #12 is now unemployed and collecting nothing in severence pay after 22 years with the company, since the fact that he lied on his resume voided his employment / severence agreement.

    Acutally, .4 is quite substantial; 3.5 to 3.9 is very large. UP TO .2 is permissible if, and only if, you have multiple transcripts from different colleges. If anybody calls you out you can just call it a weighting error or something like that. Otherwise it is best to tell the truth.

  • gshell's picture

    The largest permissible "change" is .05 by rounding, like 3.75 to 3.8.
