My daughter didn't apply for NHS membership (she's now a rising senior). She has the community service hours and all of the pre-requisites, but says look how many members there are, how can this be an honor? I don't need this label to have a successful future, why don't my grades stand on their own, blah blah blah. I did tell her that during her college interviews she better have a non-confrontational answer to the question "why didn't you apply?" But seriously, will this put her in a bad light with admissions? She's so not a glory-seeker. Sigh.
