Should I put my ASVAB score on my resume etc...? I'll be applying to highly selective engineering schools. I scored in the 99th percentile. What I like about it is that half of it's a standard subjects test and the other half has vocational subjects on it. The vocation half isn't easy for most ppl unless they are into shop classes and lots of tinkering. I think my vocational skills set me apart from other applicants. An engineer who knows how to get his hands dirty?

Bob--It's a good idea to put your score on your resume. Depending where you apply, it may or may not be meaningful, but it won't hurt.
Better yet, emphasize your hands-on achievements in your essay--if the topic or topics assigned lend themselves to it--or in a supplemental essay, if they don't.
If you've invented or constructed anything unusual through your "tinkering," one picture can be worth a thousand words. Take a photo or two to include with your application (along with a brief explanation, of course) as well.
