anyone else?

your awards and honors

don't mention who's who and nat'l honor roll
both are scams to spam you and your relatives, and if colleges recognize that you're desperate enough to include that under your EC's they may cancel you out even tho you are a very qualified applicant.

By busaftey? on Monday, December 16, 2002 - 12:59 am: Edit

although they are scams, i don't think it can hurt to include schools like BU not everyone gets them...although it probably is useless to include them at more elite schools
