Hi - asking a question for a friend. They recently accepted a job offer and currently going thru background check. They inflated their undergrad gpa on their resume (stupid of them i know) and are worried it’s going to get found and the offer rescinded. I told her she’s wrong for doing that but there’s no way the offer gets rescinded. Thoughts? She’s like almost 4 years post grad

Are you sure you’re not asking for yourself?

Yet here you are. 🤣 Don’t quote me on this but your GPA doesn’t show up on a background check. That’s why they ask for your transcripts. Even then I dont know if they’d even check that out and I dont think I’ve ever been asked for my transcripts.

They don't check GPA. Universities only confirm that you graduated. They aren't allowed to provide transcripts without the student's permission.

Not sure. My guess is that similarly to when they reach out to previous jobs they can confirm dates of attendance.

I’ll say this. I know someone personally who was supposed to start at a BB as an IB summer analyst, and they lied about their GPA being a 3.7 when it was in the 2.0-3.0 range. They had their offer rescinded after someone told HR about the GPA.

I would look down on anyone who lies to this extent. A 3.45 to 3.5, fine whatever. But to do the above, I would question your honesty.

I completely agree it’s just funny to me because there are people who I know for a fact had sub 3.0 Gpa’s that got consulting/ib roles after graduating that require 3-3.5 min gpa. It makes a lot of sense now because they aren’t the ones to speak about it to other people. I just knew because I was a TA for many of the classes they were enrolled in.

That’s a tough one. Might depend on how much, if it looks like a mistake or if it’s a large enough gap to raise an eyebrow.

Oh well if they didn’t ask for it I don’t think it will be an issue.

How much did she inflate it lol

She should just leave it off rather than inflate it

4 years out of college most people do not care about your GPA unless it’s explicitly stated in the job req

They won’t check the GPA

Dont worry. The background check wont confirm the cGPA. They will just check with concerned university the authencity of degree, eg, passing out date, discipline
And most probably background check is conducted on the basis of form filled not the resume.
