Can you put your full scholarship on your resume?

Postby hellothisisme » Tue Mar 27, 2012 4:39 pm

I know this is probably a dumb question.

If you're attending a law school on a full scholarship, is it acceptable/appropriate to list on your resume when applying for legal jobs that you received a full scholarship?

And I'm not talking about one of the hoity-toity named ones (such as Rubenstein/Hamilton).

I just interviewed someone who put this on their resume. My thought was "wow, that's pretty impressive" not "what a douche."

I say go for it.

you can put anything on your resume that you want -- it's your marketing document. (Just make sure it's all true.)

The real question that you should be asking is if future employers care about such a thing?
