SA Offer Rescinded due to GPA

Sup y'all. Has anyone known anybody that has had an SA offer rescinded due to their GPA not matching their transcripts? I submitted my resume back in early summer with my winter cumulative GPA which was 3.57 & finished the year with 3.47. I simply forget to update my resume and did not intend to misrepresent my GPA. Do you think HR will later reach out to me about this? I accepted the offer but they have not yet asked for transcripts & am hoping that I can bump my GPA back up to at least 3.5 by the time that they ask for them.SA for a BB btw.

EDIT: I'll keep y'all updated if I run into any bumps with HR once I get closer to my start date

At GS TMT/FIG with a 3.4 GPA. GPA isn't everything.

You're definitely the anomaly.

To be clear, HR will care about matching your transcript with what you submitted your resume with. So if you performed poorly after submitting you resume and getting your offer, you should be fine.

As long as your transcript matches to what you applied with, you're fine. Obviously don't drop to a 2.5 or something but going to a 3.5 in a session will not be an issue at all so long as you were truthful when you applied.

You could say the resume was outdated and submitted prior to when your grades were finalized. 3.47 to 3.57 is quite small (the 3.5 BB cutoff is only a soft cutoff for first rounds, it doesn't affect you after that)

Honestly though they will rarely pull transcripts for SAs
