Shall I put 3.5 yr WE or 5.5 yr WE? [#permalink]

I am an IT applicant, 29 male. Do you think 5.5 yr WE is a disavantage?
I ask the question because I have two options now in my resume. I did a two year traineeship program in an Europe University. The traineeship was a job, and we were all full-time employees of the university. On the other hand, it is basically a two-year doctorate-level engineering degree program, according to the university. So it is no problem if I move the traineeship from my WE to my educations, thus have only 3.5 year of WE by now on my resume (2 in China and 1.5 in Europe).
I think there may be two advantages of doing so:
1. My shorter WE in Europe explains why I haven't be promoted yet here.
2. My shorter WE doesn't make me look too experienced in my current career, which I actually intend to change after the MBA.
What do you think? Shall I count the traineeship as the education or the WE? thanks a lot!

What will be a disadvantage is trying to spin and overly position something. What is a disadvantage is if the adcom suspects that you may be trying to misrepresent something - because it then ruins the credibility of everything else you say. _________________
