GPA for buy-side recruitment Post-IB?

Hasn't been discussed in a few years, but what is a good gpa to have going into buy-side recruitment from IB? Im asking in particular for MM PE and credit shops. Personally graduated with a 3.5 cumulative and 3.7 major, am I screwed?

For recruitment for first and second year analysts on the desk trying to transition to PE or credit? Please share if so

Let's not pretend the difference in premise makes a real difference

That post isn't the same as what OP is asking. OP is asking about kids going from 2-3 years in IB to MM private equity, and how important GPA is then.

Agreed there's a large difference from an IB analyst trying to make the move to the buy-side and a sophomore in college... bump

Here's a hint: they're all lower level employees so it's all the fucking same. 3.7+.

So its possible that if you graduate with a less than stellar GPA (let's say 3.3-3.5), you could be stuck in banking?
