But so many schools offer these kinds of recognitions now, they vary from school to school and for the most part they are too broad, so we don't value them.
It will give you little edge on your FIRST Job application, after that you are on your own. I had 3 in my three years UG, it did not help me get into a "Big 8" Accounting firm(now it is Big 4), the cut off cum was 3.5 and I had 3.45...
hey guys ,my first semester of college and sadly i did not make the deans list
but i was wondering what does making this list mean anyway
I don't really understand this....at most schools being on the Dean's List means you have a certain GPA (at son's it's a 3.5), why would that be meaningless? Are you finding that schools put people on the Dean's List for no apparent reason?
Moreover, if the average graduating GPA is 3.45, and Dean's list is 3.5, it isn't exactly special. Read gradeinflation.com and you'll see how high it's gotten since we were in college.
What I like most is what U of Toronto provides on their transcripts- you see the grade one received for a course, AND you see the class average for that course (its a great way for them to maintain their very non-grade inflated environment
