I just finished an internship at a BB and received a FT offer. During recruitment, I had my major GPA listed on my resume (which I calculated at ~3.4) however my cumulative is a 2.9 (got hurt on a religion course and an economics course). I didn't think I'd get the internship but I did, and they never asked for my transcript though I signed a contract giving them the right to confirm my education. Now I got the FT offer with a year left of school, and am sure as a bulge bracket they'll ask for my official transcript upon graduation. I'm nervous considering they'll see the 2.9. Also, if it makes a difference, the FT position and internship didn't have a minimum GPA, and I was actually never asked about it either during the process (I got in through networking). I'm also coming from a target school, had good reviews as an intern, and have a couple months to accept. So what do I do/what should I expect? In my mind, I can do one of three things:
1) Bank on my remaining two semesters being strong and finish with a 3.2 (I'm top heavy on credits so it is possible though not likely). Then I'm not sure there would be an issue. OR hope they just don't ask for the transcript or check the GPA (as in they just want to confirm my graduation).
2) Just turn down the offer and recruit somewhere else without any GPA advertised.
3) Email HR and make sure they understand I was only referring to my major GPA (my resume does in fact say "Major GPA" but on the app when your resume gets uploaded, it just says GPA). Then explain the scenario, and hope they understand.
If they're going to rescind it, I'd rather just turn down the offer or find out now so I can focus on getting another job. If they aren't going to check GPA, ask for a transcript, or care about it period, then I'd like to accept the offer and move on. Any thoughts?
