because classes are just starting because of COVID. I don't even have a transcript yet. What should I do? Should I email the recruiting team? Should I still apply?

Dear A,

I think that you shoutl still apply and put an expected level of your GPA. If there will be some further issues you can right to the recruiting team.

Wish you all the best,
André

Hi there,

I agree with Udayan, if you have to put a number, you can use an expected value for it.

Best,

Francesco

Think 100% still apply AND email the recruiting team.

This is a good excuse to start a conversation and make your name more familiar to them :)

Also, I agree with the rest that you can put expected GPA

Hi there,

I would also recommend you put on the expected GPA and then if they ask you can tell that it was a required string, but you haven’t got your diploma yet.

Was it helpful?

All the best,

GB
