And yes this is a scam, so you can save your money on some "tasty" brownies.

Quote:


Information received from members of the public indicates that this firm is reportedly engaged in contacting high school students and for a purported fee of $45, offers a membership into the firm. According to the company's literature, the primary benefit of membership is the fact that you can list being a member of The National Society of High School Scholars on university applications. The company further represents to potential members that it offers two annual scholarships to "outstanding new members", yet no specific criteria is delineated as to what the member must meet to be eligible to receive the scholarship, prior to paying any fees to the company.

Thanks for your responses...
Apguy, the link didn't work...
Also, how did they get all those famous people on the board of trustees? Maya Angelou, Edward Norton, Claes Nobel, etc...?

If you're really want to make sure if it is a scam or not, email one of them and ask them if they're on the board of trustees
