National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) - February 11th 2015, 02:53 AM

I just got an invitation to join this group, NSCS, after getting a 3.5 last semester. Problem is, I feel pretty wary about it, because to me it would be the ultimate hypocrisy. My motto last semester was literally this: "Fuck the next lesson, I'll pass the test guessin." I only went to half my classes, and pulled like 20 all nighters. It says only 10 % of people at my school can qualify, and I'm like, are you kidding me? How lazy is everyone else? I really don't feel like I would belong there, but they're promising (or at least saying I could get) tons of benefits and scholarships if I join. To me, that seems too good to be true. Should I accept? it costs one 100 dollar payment for a lifetime. (that probably makes it sound like a scam, but no, its legit)
Another negative is I would have to do a ceremony in the fall at my school, which would be awkward because I'd love to transfer. Not to mention they would do a news piece on it, which I find somewhat terrifying.

If I were you I'd speak to a guidance counselor about it, and do some research on the program itself.

I think I got something from them or a similar organization (which I had never heard of) and I didn't do it because it seemed too good to be true. As a general rule, if it feels like a scam or too good to be true, don't do it.

It wasn't like an email or anything, I wouldve marked it as spam immediately. It came in a big envelope, kinda like college recruitment all over again.

Yeah, I've gotten emails from that one. Don't pay for resume builders. There's plenty of organizations you can join that will be much better on your resume that don't have the mysterious $100 fee.
