Elite high school worth mentioning?Subscribe
Hi all, I’m in a bit of a conundrum. I am afraid that this is a topic I may get some unfavorable comments on, but pls bear with me. When I was 13, i enrolled in one of the most prestigious boarding schools in the world (Eton / Andover / Rosey etc). I was quite home sick and didn’t get along with my head-master. As a result, I had dropped Out of school After a year, and enrolled at another top Boarding school in Asia / Middle East - where I had more success in terms of social assimilation. My first school though was way more prestigious than the one I had subsequently ended up attending. Now I’m graduating from uni (a non-target according to WSO but with supportive alumni network) I wonder if I can mention to people that I had once attended the school which I eventually left? As I mentioned, it is way more prestigious than my eventual Alma Mater and is something that may force people to see me in a different light. What are your thoughts? If I don’t, should I at least mention it on my LinkedIn? I know I may come across as a troll but I’m dead serious and have no ill intentions to stoke a class-war.
