Positive Addenda
« on: January 11, 2009, 07:52:33 PM »
I'm wondering if an addendum can be used in order to highlight certain 'plus' points in your transcript...For example taking a 400-500 level class, but being the only undergrad enrolled; or serving, without credit, as a class TA.

Anyone have some input on this? ;)

Honestly, it sounds kind of arrogant.  I would put the TA on your resume, but that's it.

ehh. I don't think it's appropriate for an addendum.

You can list graduate classes you've taken as an undergrad in the "education" section of your resume and mention TAing under activities.

Unless there is something truly exceptional, I would reserve this for your resume.

Adding an extra line to convey approximately the same thing that a 400-500 word Addendum does, is preferable IMO.
