This is a pretty short question. Is it meaningful to list what you have self-studied on your CV? This question was prompted by me glancing at my office mate's CV. He is a master's student applying to PhD programs. He listed that he studied his way through General Relativity and Algebraic Topology (classes he missed because of the rotation, but he nevertheless worked his way through the books). Anyway, is it a meaningful addition to a CV? Would a prospective school look on that positively, negatively, or apathetically? I'm not trying to poo-poo on his resume, I'm just curious.
