Listing Honor Societies
Answered

Hi! I've been told I should list all of my honor societies under one honor on the common app. I am in National, English, Math, Social Studies, Spanish, Science, Tri-M (Music), Thespians, and Speech and Debate. If I write out Math and Social Studies as Mu Alpha Theta and Rho Kappa I don't have enough character count so is it fine to call them by the subject? And should I write Tri-M as Music? Thank you!

Hey @cdelavega22 , great question! In this case, I would honestly recommend just listing these honor societies by their subject names in one series, since colleges and universities will almost certainly know what you mean, even if you don't list these honor societies using their greek-lettered titles. I wouldn't worry about it too much! I hope this is helpful, and good luck -- you got this!
