The Presidential Scholar program is a pile of crap,Dec 04 2016Unknown
The Presidential Scholar program is a pile of crap, it gives you class selection priority your freshman year (when you don't need it) and like $2k for a special individual project. It's a program designed to draw you away from a better school, Do not be fooled into thinking you are a special snowflake for getting it, I knew several people who did it and there was no correlation between being a presidential scholar and any kind of prowess Academic or otherwise. It's just a strategic guess they can lure you away for a couple grand in money you won't end up using. DO NOT LET IT PLAY INTO YOUR CHOICE OF COLLEGE YOU ATTEND.
ACT: 32 Male
