What do you all think about those letters saying you one this honor, join the society for 75$, or you could buy the book with your listing for 60$ etc...

I'm talking about the National Dean's List, Who's who among HS students, etc. I thought the NDL one was actually impressive and hard to get... until 3 more letters came to my apartment addressed to people who i guess had lived there before me. real exclusive...

I feel stupid now b/c i but the national dean's list one on my application. is this really just a scam honor or is it something to be proud of? Are admissions people going to be put off by it?

What do you guys know about these and other honors/societies? Which ones are legit honors/awards?
