Highest Grade in Class Designation

Postby hoyasaxon » Wed Jun 08, 2011 3:37 pm

the registrar just emailed - apparently I have the highest grade in the class for rhetoric (to clarify, each student with the highest grade in his/her section got this email). How should I mark this distinction on my resume?

(e.g....Spring 2011, Legal Rhetoric: A; highest grade in the class)?

It's clearly non-frivolous to put this on my resume, correct?

My school calls it an "academic achievment award."

my school calls it course excellence award; you can safely name it "Course/Class Award in Rhetoric"

so for instance, i mention a CALI award in my resume, and in parentheses after i list it i describe what it means.
Yep. "Nameofaward (Highest grade in Prof. Smith's Torts class)" is sufficient.
