Awards?

Postby simplycatalina » Mon Dec 10, 2012 11:05 pm

Several applications ask you to list the awards you've received. For several semesters my Berkeley transcript says "Academic Honors". I also have a "High Distinction in General Scholarship" and "High Honors" in my major. I'm just wondering how to list that on this section. Do I put down the Academic Honors for each semester, or do I just put down the overall award?

"Academic Honors (Fall 2010, Spring 2011, Fall 2012); High Distinction in General Scholarship (Economics Major); High Honors (Economics Major)" or whatever. List the GPA cutoffs if you know them and want to include them. It's not really that important; just write something that makes sense. You can also say something like "Academic Honors (six semesters)" if there are too many to list out.
