Does my study abroad transcript matter at all?

They count as pass/fail on my UG transcript and don't count towards my GPA. I understand that employers usually ask for transcripts after the job offer, so would I be right in assuming that while I shouldn't try to barely pass all of my classes, my grades while studying abroad (1 sem) pretty much don't matter at all in the IBD SA/job recruitment process?

And what about for other jobs like consulting, boutiques, etc.?

Thanks!

Study abroad transcript (Originally Posted: 11/27/2010)

Do MBA programs request official transcripts from the school you studied abroad at?

My study abroad program grades transfer back to my home university as pass/fail. However, the bar for passing is very low. If I got Ds during study abroad but they only showed up as Pass in my transcript with no effect on my GPA, would MBA programs ever know?
