    Wow, how many programs are you applying to? 5? Prepping for college apps? Lol, I'm not a specialist at HSHSP so this post is sort of pointless.
  • shravasshravas Registered User Posts: 2,056 Senior Member
    I'm not sure if HSHSP will look at awards/ecs (unless you integrate them into your essays or something). And, there was already a thread on this forum before about HSHSP.

    OMG so is anyone going ????????
    I just decided yesterday to go. Sort of torn, since my friend from London is coming back over the summer and I'll miss him almost entirely, but I dont want to regret passing on this opportunity.

    That said, if HSHSP started just one day later my friends and I could have gone to a Pearl Jam concert. Such bad luck :(
    Has anyone else heard back from hshsp yet?
    This may be obvious given my above post, but yeah, I have.

    Also, based on Narcissa's first post, it's a miracle and a half that I got in with people like her applying.

    oh, reading list:
    lots, I read like 10+ out of school and 15ish in school. I wrote my paragraph about Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried. It's an incredible book. Read it. Please.

    Really? I just told the truth and put what I had read outside of school o_O Maybe I should not have done that?
  • odlesodles Registered User Posts: 5 New Member
    oh, I didn't mean to imply that I was dishonest with my book list. I just read a lot of books this year. I made sure to make it clear which were in-school and which were independent, since I thought thats what I read we were supposed to do on the sheet.
  • NarcissaNarcissa - Posts: 3,935 Senior Member
    ^yeah it was. my book had like 30 books on it; i've truly read all of them tho!

    And do you have a facebook? Let's have a pre-HSHSP party!!!
  • odlesodles Registered User Posts: 5 New Member
    sounds like fun

    yeah, my facebook is Drew Gleeman (I'm the only one I think), and / or AIM is dgleeman2

    Yeah, I read all of the ones on my list, too. Except I sort of skimmed Great Expectations because it was really, really boring.
  • NarcissaNarcissa - Posts: 3,935 Senior Member
    haha I read Great Expectations twice

    it was cute and cruel

    I don't think I rememberd to put it on my list tho, my list was mainly mathy books

    I hope you're the person I just friended on facebook. And if so, 124 wpm is really impressive.

    classic rock, physics, logic problems, chess, running (not distance though), the office, arrested development, fight club, and videogames.
