    I'm a pbk and i've only had 2 interviews so far. i don't think it really matters either way. it can't hurt, but if you have an interesting record people will see on on your transcripts. I was all happy to get in though :)

    From the PBK website FAQ:

    3. How do I become a member of Phi Beta Kappa?

    Candidates are nominated for election to by their chapters and cannot apply for membership. Students interested in Phi Beta Kappa are encouraged to contact the chapter officer early in their academic careers for guidance on requirements and curriculum. Generally, election to membership occurs at the completion of undergraduate study. A very few chapters at universities with doctoral programs in the liberal arts and sciences also elect graduate student members.
