Do employers care about honors fraternities? (Phi Delta Phi)

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Mar 23, 2012 9:16 pm

I was invited to the information session based on my GPA. I have no idea what the cutoff is, but I'm pretty sure it's not very high (I heard top third, but the person wasn't sure).

Will membership look good on my resume? If not, fuck that noise.

Phi Beta Kappa will give you a bump. The other honor fraternities are irrelevant. (given that your GPA must be high to be invited) -> they'll be much more impressed with your GPA itself than putting a random honor fraternity on your resume.

PAD, PDP, and other similar "law honor fraternities" are not worth it. Only Order of the Coif (or weirdly named equivalent at specific schools) is worth it.

There's no way I'd join the Order of the Queef.

Is there a way for me to close this thread, btw? I've heard all I need to.

If you qualified, you would join. Enjoy your drinking club.

Why will PBK? I thought it was stupid, but my parents insisted that I join and paid. I didn't even put it on my resume though.

PBK doesn't even require any specific grades at my TTT. $85 = member. I'm sure it's a HUGE resume boost. :roll:

All honor societies are a joke. Save your $85 and just put your GPA down.
