NSHSS Getting Your Information?

Hey, I received an invitation from National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS), and I'm kinda curious about how they got my information. Has anyone else gotten this and does anyone know how they obtain student info?

Hello! It's not uncommon for organizations like the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS) to obtain student information through various methods. One common way is by purchasing data from College Board or ACT, which often provide student information to third-party organizations. When you take standardized tests like the SAT, ACT, or PSAT, you may have opted into sharing your details with colleges and scholarship organizations as part of the student search services.

Another possibility is that your school or a teacher might have nominated you for the NSHSS based on your academic achievements or extracurricular involvement. In any case, you should always exercise caution and research any organization that contacts you to determine its legitimacy.
