Missed a minor Detail

Postby weee » Fri Apr 09, 2010 10:54 pm

So,

I forgot to mention that I received Cum Laude honors from my UG anywhere in my app or resume, is this something I should even bother mentioning as a single sentence in a potential future LOCI for a waitlist? How about in a scholarship negotiation? My GPA is obviously the same, and I don't think this matters, but I feel kind of silly for not realizing I had this (graduated 5+ years ago). I think the main reason I forgot is that I fell 0.05 short of Magna, and I was really disappointed in myself, and sort of felt I didn't get any honors.

I'll definitely make sure to include that in my resume in the future, but I'm not convinced it is worth mentioning retroactively.

Where did you apply? I'd mention the honor only if your GPA is above median at the school. No need to draw attention to a GPA lower than median.

This sounds reasonable, I think the risk of it hurting is probably more than it is worth. I will just update my resume for the future
