Where does Phi Beta Kappa go on resume?

Does Phi Beta Kappa help grad school?
Yes. While each chapter determines the standards they use to invite people to join, graduate schools know that relatively few colleges have Phi Beta Kappa chapters and relatively few students at each school are invited to be members.
How do you get invited to Phi Kappa Phi?
Phi Kappa Phi membership is earned. Admission is invitation-only and requires nomination approval by a chapter. Requirements include: Juniors must have completed at least 72 credit hours, with at least 24 semester hours at their current institution, and rank in the top 7.5 percent of their class.
