Does being accepted at great colleges but me rejecting to go to a better place hold any place in my CV, like

Selected at this place in the department of that?


1 Answer 1


"I rejected Stanford for Harvard," doesn't hold much relevance (and won't impress anyone that graduated from Stanford)—I suggest omitting such references.

  • Late question but I think still relevant: How do lines like "Selected at Stanford for MS in Physics in 20XX" impact the reader of the resume in PhD admissions? I am asking this since it is very common for some Indian students to write that they were selected here/there in the Scholastic Achievements section.
