Fucked up in undegrad - can a master save me?

Hi guys as mentioned above I have a bad undergraduate GPA (expected 3.2~ top 15%/20%) - I am currently planning on applying to a good university for my masters.

I have a solid Resume
Sellside (all internships)
1 BB
offer (internship) 1 BB
1 Midmarket
1 Restructuring
Buy side
2 PE (Both small cap)
Offer (internship)1 PE (Large Cap)

GMAT: 770

Speaking realistically how much do employers look at your undegraduate GPA when you have got a Graduate Degree.

Sorry for confusion.

PE shop asks for IB FT experience first they dont hire out of undergraduate.
BB extended FT but I must achieve at 3.3 at least- unfortunately not possible anymore.

Ah gotcha, can't believe the BB is pulling that, anyway they don't follow through with that? I would at least accept the offer and try to go through as much of the onboarding process as possible before the GPA question gets brought up. what about the MM/restructuring slots? From what I've seen/heard after starting full time and getting the 2 years experience gpa becomes much less of an issue esp. since you have the 770 gmat. if possible I'd hold off on a masters and focus on MBA recruiting a few years down the road (pending you're able to get something solid FT) Im just a first year tho so others may hopefully have some better insights.

That's fucked of them dude, why don't you just extend your degree by a semester and take BS classes to get a 3.3? Probably cheaper than a masters
