National Honor Society is an honor. Being inducted into it shouldn’t be a given. I applied and if I got denied, I know that I just wasn’t good enough. I’ll try again next year. But, even though I may not get into it, I know beforehand it is selective. NHS isn’t something that should be boosting everyone’s self-esteem to making them think they’re the greatest thing on earth.
100+ people don’t need to be in NHS.
