I was just reading through the BGO sticky (which is very good, BTW) because I had not read it in a long time. This one note caught my attention: What does my BGO know about me? New A lot less than you might think. Due to privacy concerns, your BGO actually has very little information about you. In particular, we do NOT have access to your teacher recommendations, your activities record, your transcript, your class rank, your CFA scores (or even whether you passed or failed). I think that it is a good thing that the BGO knows so little about the candidate. It's probably by design. That way they will evaluate the candidate strictly based on their impressions gained from the interview and will not enter the interview with any predisposition (either pro or con) because of something they may have learned from the candidate's record.
