<p>Okay, let's be real here. If there is anything more useless in the world, it is membership in either of these organizations. However, being the snob guy I am who wants to look superficially good, I still want to include this crap on my resume. I have a few questions though.</p>
<p>I got my invitation to Golden Key via mail and it says I have to pay a $80 life time membership fee.</p>
<p>1) I don't really want to pay $80 for essentially NOTHING. Can I still include in my resume "Member of Golden Key Society" even though I was nominated and invited but just technically never really wanted to join cause I didn't want to pay the damn $80? It's not like anyone is going to verify that crap right?</p>
<p>I haven't gotten an invitation to Phi Beta Kappa, but according to UCLA PKB's website, the requirement for an invite is a 3.67 GPA when you have 140+ units. I'm like, 80% sure I'll get a 3.67 when all my Fall quarter grades come out and my units will by then have reaced 140 exactly. </p>
<p>2)Will I get my invitation during Winter quarter?
3) Does Phi Beta Kappa have a "fee" too?
4) Same question as #1 applies about PKB</p>
