# MSE reputation on my resume

Though my reputation isn't that high, can I still put it on my resume while applying for an admission in a premier Mathematical Institute?

Does having a good reputation on MSE counts as an achievement to be put on a resume?

• A related question on Academia site: How to communicate achievements on the StackExchange network in an academic CV or job interview? This post here on meta is also to some extent related: What is the Real Use of Reputation? – Martin Sleziak Aug 19 '18 at 9:56
• I am not sure that $400$ is above average, but if you are applying for a position where teaching skills are important, and if you feel that you have made nice contributions here, then I'd say that it could be relevant, in a section further down the end of your resume. – Arnaud Mortier Aug 19 '18 at 12:15
• Given that 245 of your 400 reputation points came from [having asked one question] about "visualization of the 4th dimension", leaving a gain of a net 155 from answers, I would personally advise you not to include, as an "asset"on your CV, your rep from MSE. However, if you are a highschool student, seeking admission into a math program, then it would be appropriate, in you personal statement, to include mention of extra-curricula activity on MSE, how it's helped, or honed, or clarified or deepened your appreciation for math. – Namaste Aug 19 '18 at 16:43
