Should I add my eligibility to join Golden Key International Honour Society on my résumé?
It means I scored in the top 15% for my graduate year in 2005. I've heard dodgy things about the society’s reputation though. Should I add the achievement anyway? Of course I'm not a member though. What do you think? I think it'd be weird (perhaps pompous) if I just said that I got good grades instead.

If you are not a member you should not list it, as it has not been awarded to you without joining. If you feel the need you can list your top 15%, but unless you joined the society you should not list it. Say you are a really fast runner, and the track coach asks you a couple of times to run for the team, but you never do would you list "invited to join the track team" on your resume? Same deal here.

Either include it... or just state in your resume that you graduated within the upper 15% of your class.

why would you list that you could be part of it? if it was that great, youd be in it right?
