After graduating from college, the student (in part-time) took a PhD level course while working. It was a very difficult hardcore course and the student got a B.
Would this grade help or hurt the student's application to for example a top 5 graduate school?
If it does hurt and the student is not required to report the grade to the schools that s/he is applying to, can s/he choose not to report the course?
Probably many of you might think that this practice is unethical; however, I do not see an ethical problem, as the school only requires the applicant to put on schools that they've attended for at least a year.
So let's put the ethical issue away. Would hiding that course from a resume help?
