Is this something that would look good on a resume? I just found out today that i made the deans list for the spring semester, which means that i had a 3.5 or greater GPA and went full time.... should i add this?
Fantastic. The project manager is inspired.

    I was always on Dean's list in college. I tried pretty hard and kept my grades up, so I could get highest honors once I graduated. However...towards the end of my last year, I got some annoying classes that I didn't enjoy and slacked off, ending up with a final GPA that was a mere one or two points below that goal. Really sucked.

    Now I just include my GPA next to my degree on the resume. I bring Dean certificates and stuff with me on job interviews, but most employers don't bother to look at them.

    Present goals: MCAS, MCSA, 70-680

    If you haven't graduated, then definitely!
    Lab first, ask questions later

    For now, yes definitely include it. As you progress further and have things to add to your resume (read: experience and certs and a degree), consider taking that off and just including college name, degree, and gpa.

    Who is on the Dean's List changes each semester as students rise above and fall below the GPA threshold (usually 3.5). If you fall off the list for more than a semester, be sure to remove the mention from your resume. If you graduate on the Dean's List then leave it mentioned along with your final GPA.
