The National Dean's List...?

If you found out that your friend is on The National Dean's List, how jealous are you and how would you react? Why?

Update:

Realize this is not like your College or University Dean's List.

"The National Dean's List®, honoring high-achieving college students nationwide, was established in 1978. Because of the enthusiastic cooperation of educators nationwide,The National Dean's List has become the largest, most-respected program in the nation for honoring exceptional college students."

    While some say that having all of those honors really makes a difference- it doesnt. No one in the real job market really cares what you did in college, what clubs you were in or what honors you had. Having the degree in hand is most important factor in getting a job. For first time grads having a decent GPA on your resume wont hurt, but some companies (like google) that used to use that as a requirement dont anymore. It would be better to have a high GPA on your resume if you are competing against a lot of other new grads for the same job. But really, the same thing goes for college as it did for highschool- employers dont care about your "accomplishments" in school. I have heard that some prestigious jobs such as high powered law firms and "old-money" companies do look at your college life as a whole, I wouldnt be worried about it- if your getting into those jobs you probably know someone or are tied-in anyways.
