I'm thinking about applying to NHS for my Junior year next year, but it just doesn't sound worth it. I'm fairly positive that I could get in (I don't have many service hours), but it just seems like it would take a ton of time and not have many benefits.
at my school with a NHS card you can order take-out food for lunch, leave school if you have free periods, and the card counts as a hall pass. Soo it is worth it for me. I don't know if there are differences between school districts.
Colleges love seeing NHS on applications. It shows that you are active in your school community, do volunteer work, and you're a good enough kid to be accepted. It's not that much work. and you could use something fun for volunteer work. For me, I go once a week to teach an hour long class that teaches mentally disabled people to play tennis. It's super easy and fun, and it's good for college.
Looks really good, especially if you are in a public school! If you are then service hours may be hard to do but find something fun and enjoyable. At my catholic school we already have hours that are required but I am in German Honors Society. Definetely helps apps!
Oh right I was just talking about the meetings. But 20 hours/semester is really high. We do 5 hours of community service a quarter so thats half of what you have. Also, the hours are pretty much optional because no one ever gets kicked out, and the person in charge of NHS simply has to send in a confirmation of hours for the group as a whole (instead of individuals) to the charter, so people never get singled out. Pretty easy
yeah i was kind of wondering the same thing, Idk though, seems like just another thing to waste time on... if I could use the community service hours I use for lettering in my sports, in NHS, then maybe i'll do it
