Rejected from NHS... now what?
Today I was informed that I got rejected into NHS. I come from a relatively small school so only 25 students from each grade get selected. I know it's not the end of the world because I didn't get accepted. However, what does that say about how colleges are going to see me? I'm trying to go to the best school with a non-cutthroat environment that I know I could do well in. The acceptance rates to the colleges that I am looking at are around 25-45%. What can I do as a junior to improve my resume? My unweighted GPA is around 3.76. I am the secretary of a community service club in my school and the treasurer of Key Club. I also am the founder of my school's health professionals club. The main out of school activity that I volunteer for is the Special Olympics. But I also teach kids at my district's elementary school about STEM. I haven't taken the SATs yet but I am aiming to be in the 90th percentile. I want to get into the best college that I feel is right for me but now I feel so discouraged.18 replies
