F*ck NHS. Who needs it???????

By mc on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 01:27 pm: Edit

seriously... say 100 people applied for NHS... how many people do you think make it on average?

By NHS Member on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 01:57 pm: Edit

30

By mc on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 01:59 pm: Edit

seriously?
i thought it was upwards of 50

By another NHS member on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 02:00 pm: Edit

and about 5-10 of those are seniors.

By mc on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 02:01 pm: Edit

of how many?

By another NHS member on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 02:02 pm: Edit

It depends on. Usually it seems to be that about 10%-35% are seniors.

By mc on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 02:05 pm: Edit

but how many at most make it?

By mc on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 02:08 pm: Edit

cuz here are my credentials.

-i have the GPA needed
-varsity baseball
-varsity basketball
-mock trial club
-speech and debate club
-60 hours community service
-great essay
-mostly 5's some 4's for recommendations.
i think there were like 70-85 people that tried out.

what are my chances?

By another NHS member on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 02:08 pm: Edit

There are usually between 30-60 people who get into NHS. When I was inducted, there were about 40 some people at the ceremony, but there were also quite a few who didn't show up.

By another NHS member on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 02:11 pm: Edit

It all depends on who else goes to your school. NHS membership is determined by a special faculty committee, at least at my school it is. I am an officer of NHS and I have no power to decide who gets in. The president of NHS at my school can look at some of the applications, but I don't know how much jurisdiction the president would have. Each school has its own set of standards for inducting members.

By mc on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 02:13 pm: Edit

can you please assess me a percent chance tho with my stats. Assuming 30-60 people get in and there were about 80-90 people there.

By another NHS member on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 02:27 pm: Edit

I honestly cannot tell without knowing who else goes to your school. Can anyone apply or do you have to be nominated before you apply?

By its stupid on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 02:58 pm: Edit

yeah, it all depends on school. In my school 50% of my class made it because i got to one of the most competitive public schools in New England. In some random places like idaho, prolly like 5% make NHS. Most people that attend top schools have NHS so it's nothing special.

By quarky on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 07:57 pm: Edit

my school is so retarted. 18/19 were accepted.

By its stupid on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 07:59 pm: Edit

in my school, anyone with a 3.0 unweighted (out of 4) gets in.

By quarky on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 08:36 pm: Edit

yeah, and what does my school do for the NHS? only one thing:

get ready for new members at the end of the year.

By jeremy on Friday, January 31, 2003 - 12:56 pm: Edit

in my school, there are about 330 kids a grade, and about 90 are in NHS...its only for seniors, and u need at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA

By incognito on Friday, January 31, 2003 - 02:14 pm: Edit

In my school, NHS is mandatory. You cant get a full high school diploma without it. I'm the only person in my 68 person grade who is not in HNS.

By N on Friday, January 31, 2003 - 02:21 pm: Edit

is NHS really important??????
does it affect your way to go o Ivies?
please answer my question. by the way, i am not in NHS.

By meryl on Friday, January 31, 2003 - 04:57 pm: Edit

Yes, N, NHS is important, but in name only. It doesnt really do much or stand for much. It just looks good. It's not important in what it does, necessarily. It's important in how it makes you look. Getting into NHS is not very hard. Their standards are not very high. It is, however, extremely important in terms of applications. It not only looks good, but in some cases, it almost seems as though it is necessary. I have a long time friend who got rejected from Penn State because somebody else had pretty much the same credentials and what not, the only difference is that they were in NHS.

By cookie on Friday, January 31, 2003 - 05:00 pm: Edit

i know some one who goes to penn state, it's a huge school...

By meryl on Friday, January 31, 2003 - 05:01 pm: Edit

who really cares, cookie?

By jamu86 on Friday, January 31, 2003 - 05:39 pm: Edit

At my school out of 600 applicants 100 got in and there are about 1300 kids per class and you need abouve 3.5

By mystery on Friday, January 31, 2003 - 05:49 pm: Edit

in my school they only let like 20 kids per grade into NHS, it varies from school to school

By um...no on Friday, January 31, 2003 - 07:43 pm: Edit

NHS is useless. I wouldn't put that in your application, find other meaningful awards.
End of discussion.

By Burberry (Burberry) on Friday, January 31, 2003 - 07:43 pm: Edit

my goal is to get myself kicked out of that "organization" this semester. as a graduating senior, I don't feel obligated to wake up early to attend the pointless meetings.
