Have any of you heard of The National Society of High School Scholars? I got a letter from them a few days ago that said I had been nominated for membership of their society. Apparently having this "honor" looks really good on applications for universities or scholarships.
I thought it might be a scam, because theres a a $60 membership fee, but based on some googling, this looks like a real thing. The chairman is Claes Nobel, who is a member of the family that established the Nobel prizes. (The letter has his signature on the bottom.)
