Discus: What Are My Chances?: December 2002 Archive: National Honor Society – is it important?

I applied for the National Honor Society but was rejected because I did not hold enough leadership positions. Will this greatly affect my chance to get into a competitive college even though my EC’s, Community Service, and academics are highly above average?

Seriously, NHS is nothing.

it's nothing significant

NHS is not always nothing. It depends largely on the activity of the organization at your particular school. For the majority of schools, NHS is little more than an honor bestowed upon certain graduates; at some, however, it is an active organization--at my high school, for instance, NHS and Student Council rival one another for "most active" organization status. It depends on the activity of your school's particular organization, but the admissions people will likely automatically assume it's NOT active, so not being admitted is unlikely to irrevocably damage your application.
