“ Withdraw my application or wait to be rejected (low GPA)? Would either prevent me from successfully applying in future? ”

Anon user (#200067) asked a question in topic Application Advice
to Any Human Resources Insiders

There's an opening that asked for experience or a Bachelors degree. I have good industry experience, so I applied and had a successful first interview, with second interview scheduled.

Despite being smart, I performed poorly in undergrad and will be completing my final year of studies online.

So I'm considering withdrawing before the second interview so I don't have to submit embarrassing transcripts... but I wonder if I should proceed with the interview and just let the company tell me no instead. My goal if not currently successful, is to be able to reapply in a couple years, after excelling in grad school and being closer to attaining professional designation.

Would either withdrawing application or being rejected because of GPA hinder my future chances?
