Got superdays but really bad transcript
I have superdays coming up at a couple BBs/MMs and am nervous because my transcript is garbage. Basically, I have three pretty good semesters (3.4+) and three really bad ones (<2.7). I'm a hard science major and only listed my major GPA on my resume which is a 3.3, although my cumulative is below 3.0. I have two summers of good work experience with IBD at an MM and some good extracurriculars, which is probably how I got the interviews.
There are mitigating factors for those three semesters, but obviously, three really bad semesters (with very poor grades in the two finance classes I took) does not look good. I was just wondering what sort of tack to take should interviewers have my transcript during the interview and ask me about it. Obviously I've proven I'm not an idiot (I go to a target and I consider a 3.3 in a hard science to be pretty reasonable) or lazy, since I've handled 70+ hour weeks as a summer analyst (and got a return offer).
I just want to know if anyone has any advice on how to handle aggressive questions about my transcript without sounding too defensive. Thanks!
