Phi Kappa Phi?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Feb 15, 2010 9:22 am

Sorry, I put this here instead of in Forum for Law School Students because I wanted it to be anonymous. I'm top 10% 3L at a T10 and just got an invitation to join Phi Kappa Phi, which from my research is basically like Phi Beta Kappa except that it includes all majors and grad students. It seems like for an undergrad it wouldn't be a bad idea to join, but is there any real point for a law student? I'm not going to be looking for scholarships in the future, and I'm not sure if it's worth putting it on my resume, especially since in law everyone knows what Order of the Coif is, and it has the same class rank cutoff as Phi Kappa Phi.

I probably wouldn't waste the money. I got into this as an undergrad and I didn't feel like it was a very big deal. I don't even include it on my resume any longer. Their HQ school is like LSU or something...how prestigious could it be?

It's B.S. Only PBK matters for UGs, only Coif for LS.
