Hey there,

Will not having awards or honors affect my admission chances at selective schools?

If you're talking about graduating with honors then most likely no as you you will probably receive college admissions decisions before you graduate. However if you are taking about honors classes then yes, selective schools want you to be taking the most challenging courses available to you.
