Why do colleges (like yale, harvard, etc.) give out book awards to high school students????
Here's an interesting discussion of this question.
Thank You!!! :)
Now I know what it is. I'm going to try to get one for Yale or Harvard. I don't why the awards in NO way reflect any intention to offer acceptance for admission??? They should do that because that person... anyone or me worked really hard.
If you don't know why "the awards in NO way reflect any intention to offer acceptance for admission" then you didn't read the postings very carefully.
The award is exactly what you think it should be: a recognition that you have worked hard and achieved superior results academically. They do not mean that if you apply the college will offer you admission.
