My answer has always been no, it won't. We will a): not mention or apologize for it; and b): make sure your experience tells your story.
That's why I was interested to come across this article: "Why Google doesn't care about hiring top college graduates".
Some of the article's conclusions, from Laszlo Bock, Google's head of people operations:
- Successful young graduates have been taught to rely on talent, which makes them unable to fail gracefully.
- Successful bright people rarely experience failure, and so they don't learn how to learn from that failure.
- Top graduates often commit the fundamental attribution error, which is that is something good happens, it's because I'm a genius. If something bad happens, it's because someone's an idiot or I didn't get the resources, or...
On the other hand:
- People who make it without college are often the most exceptional.
- When you look at people who don't go to school and make their way in the world, those are exceptional human beings.
- For every job the No. 1 thing we look for is general cognitive ability, and it's not IQ. It's learning ability. It's the ability to process on the fly. It's the ability to pull together disparate bits of information.
- It's not about leading a club at school, or an impressive prior title, Bock says, but the ability to step up and learn when it's necessary.

So, if you're worried about how your education will impact how you write your bio - don't. If it's good enough for Google, you're good to go!
