Academic Honors

Saurav Adhikari 66 Rep.

A section on the Common App asks to list any academic honors

1)If I am studying at a top school and am selected among thousands of applicants, can I list is as an honor as well? Is the recognition level School or National(since I competed with applicants from all over the country)?
2)If I am felicitated by my society for high academic achievement in SLC, do I put it as school or state/regional recognition? I was selected among many students, and all of us studied in different schools.
3)Is winning Science/Math Olympiad in Inter-School Competitions a state/regional recognition award. Or is it school level recognition?

I didn’t have opportunities to participate in National/International Competitions. I don’t think many Nepali students have such opportunities. Most of the students from US and international students from other countries have such recognitions.Does that put me in a bad spot?

You have a good profile. Don’t worry about not being able to participate in international competitions. Even in the US, very few people get chance to participate in international competitions.
