to those who take LATIN...

<p>Are you planning on including any awards from standardized latin tests on your app. where it asks you to list scholastic honors/distinctions? Examples would be stuff on the National Latin Exam, National Medusa Mythology Exam, CT State Latin Exam (in my case)...thanks</p>

<p>I'm planning to list my NLE medals</p>

<p>Anyone else?</p>

<p>I took the NLE only once, but listed it. I don't think it hurt (I got summa cum laude) but I don't know if you should go overboard unless there's a deeper commitment.</p>

<p>Hey, why not list them? It can't hurt. Sure, the National Junior Classical League gives out awards like candy, but that's not your fault, is it? (I just listed them all on one line, I think). Is the CT state Latin exam new? (and I've never even heard of the Medusa exam...clearly I was deprived of standardized tests as a child...)</p>

<p>BTW, what high school do you go to?</p>

<p>RunRinCT.. Why did you post this thread on every single Ivy League forum?</p>

<p>I posted it on each ivy league forum to get the maximum number of responses. I pretty much assumed that whether students are interested in Harvard, Yale, Cornell won't affect their responses. This is a pretty universal question and I figured anyone who took Latin and was interested in any of these top schools might be able to answer it. As for my high school, I go to NF..</p>

<p>I put the NLE on my resume too. Might as well, I got a pin for it at graduation!</p>
