Since it is a scholarly organization, has anybody put this sort of thing on their college apps? I had an experience where I did include it in a letter following up after I got put on a waitlist, and ended up getting in.
So, this year I was considering using it in a LOCI for a school that I was – an art school, so hopefully more accepting of the whole Star Trek nerd-out thing, but still felt weird putting it on. I guess the whole thing worked out.
It's on my resume, but then I have published a translated book and have credits in a movie and a TV show, so my position is a little different.
If someone judges you poorly because you are interested in Klingon, then they aren't someone I'd want to be around anyway. 🙂
