So, I graduated 2 semesters ago with my undergraduate degree in accounting with a cumulative GPA of 3.188 and a major (accounting) GPA of 3.301. At my school, the minimum GPA for big4 and some mid-tier firms is a 3.2(doesn’t specify cumulative or major GPA). On my resume, I rounded my GPA to one decimal place, so 3.2 cumulative GPA and 3.3 Major GPA. Last semester, I just started graduate school, so I had to use my undergraduate GPA to apply to full time positions. Luckily, I was able to land 7 job offers, 2 of which was from the big4 and all others were from mid-tier firms. I have decided to work for RSM, but I was wondering if I can lose my job offer because I rounded my GPA. Right now, I have a graduate GPA of 3.7 and I’m really worried about this. I can’t remember if I had to submit my transcript for the online applications for RSM, but i definitely know I did this for the Big4. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
