I like the idea of using one of the various levels of cum laude to let a
prospective employer know I
excelled in an academic setting. I would use that method myself.
I do have some concerns about Tim Altom's response, though.
If I arrived at an interview and it appeared to me that a prospective
employer was more interested
in my marital status, fecundity, preference between owning or renting
property, and my choice of
pets, I would end the interview fairly quickly, but politely.
Since I am not a litigious person, *I* would not sue the snot out of him.
Also, am I naive, or couldn't decompiling a competitors software code land
