My counselor informed me that she's nominated me for the HPB Competition. From what I read in the accompanying letter, I have to participate in a roundtable discussion with nominees from other high schools in my area.
My questions are: Does everyone who gets nominated win the prize book? It's unclear in the letter exactly what the benefit is although my counselor did say that Harvard accepts 30% of the people who "win" vs only 7% of worldwide applicants.
I would like to get any advice from former Prize Book recipients. How did you prepare? How many students and judges were at your table? What was it like? Etc, etc.
