    I wouldn't say a big deal

    Maybe if you make dean's list for more semesters than not, or especially if you make it every semester

    A "big deal" may be a bit of a stretch, but it's recognition that you worked hard and performed well in school. That's something to be proud of.

    So congrats.

    You should be proud of any and all academic accomplishments.

    Be honest. You made this thread wanting posters to give you congratulations. If you were really indifferent, why would you care to post it here?

    Not sure about USA but in Australia only a few people out of 200 were on it. Companies i applied for made a big deal of it. What did you study?

    I made deans list every single year including med school. When you have a sound mind, sound habits, and aspirations it's just something that you do. What's your area of study?

    I got a few letters from honor society fraternities and I always throw them away cause they all want me to send a check.

    It's still an accomplishment brah but that's the major all of my pre-med buddies took to pad their GPA. Not saying that your school is trash. I know a teacher from there and she seems smart-ish. Just do you papi.
