Disclose bad grades on College Transcript? - Page 2

    Hi everyone,

    Here is my situaton. I just received a job offer from a small regional firm. They requested that my school send over my official transcript. While in school, I got my girlfriend pregnant, we bought a house, we got married, and I worked full time. I tried to continue going to school and ended up with some bad grades on my transcript. F and C in Intermediate 2, F in Finance, as well as some Cs in other classes. After I adjusted to my new life, my grades improved and I was able to pull off a 3.23 GPA overall and in my major. I also enrolled in a MAcc program where my GPA was a 3.8.

    I interned at the firm and did a fantastic job (according to the Sr. Managers and other staff on my engagements). I received a full time offer which I accepted and they are requesting my official transcript. Should I disclose my grades and the situation I was in at the time now or should I wait until they bring it up? If they bring it up.

    Thank you everyone for your thoughts.

    Well the bad grades is on the transcript any way so, If you want the job or become a CPA then you have to submit the transcript. That's in the past, and if you get the chance, go ahead and explain. If you passed the exam, there should be no worries.
