You say mass mail but I have a crappy GPA

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 23, 2013 9:57 pm

"Home market" = NYC, where all our OCI firms were in. No ties to any other area. Below median at a T14. Great interviewer or so I thought. 6 callbacks from 16 screeners and two dings from the CBs so far, getting worried. I mass mailed about 50 firms prior to OCI and got nothing but dings due to low GPA.

What does one do when mass mailing wouldn't work due to low GPA?

Six firms spent thousands of dollars interviewing in call backs, and you wondering if mass mailing wouldn't work because you have a below median GPA?

Check yoy low self esteem bro.

6 callbacks out of 16 screeners is pretty damn good.

6/16 is pretty fucking strong in terms of screener > callback conversion for someone below median. the fact that you are getting callbacks either means (1) you are great in interviews and/or (2) have other good things on resume that are helping screeners forget about thee gpa.

If it is other good shit on your resume, then you should obviously mass mail in the hope that those other resume items catch someone's eye.

If you think your resume is nothing special and it's all interview that is carrying you. You should try to setup informational meetings with alumni in your current market, get face time meetings, hope to impress and get them to vouch for your resume.

Hustle bro, not too late in the game.

Also what I don't understand about dudes like this is what choice do you have? You need a job, your GPA is what it is, just mass mail that shit out.

I think this is the type of advice he's looking for in terms of whether there is anything else besides mass mailing to do.
