    I got a nomination too, but I haven't checked it out because it looked like a scam. A 3.5 plus GPA isn't very competitive, but then again, I could be wrong. Anyone know anything about this?

    Oh, and I got a nomination for National Young Leaders Conference too. Is this a good program, or is it not very prestigious?

    It's a total scam (NSHSS)- don't do it.

    I received a postcard too, what's that society about?
  • CoreySCoreyS Posts: 263Registered User Junior Member
    SCAM. Although, I recieved one too, but I'm pretty sure it's a scam.

    In general, stuff where you have to pay for an honor is a scam - (somebody said this on a previous thread and it's a good way to think about it)

    For example National Merit, Presidential Scholar (I think), AP Scholar etc are free, Who's Who, National Honor Roll etc. are not

    I got a letter too. It is sponsored by the Nobel family though...
    anyhow, NYLC is totally worth it , especially if you are in politics and gov. and what not.
