Is it appropriate to list honors recieved in high school under this section on the AADSAS application?

I dont have any honors to list from college other than a few academic ones for having a 3.5 semester, which doesnt really mean anything since they can see that on my transcript. However, i did get a community service award in high school that was given to anyone who completed 150 hours of community service during their 4 years (i had over 300).

Any thoughts?
Thanks for the help!

people can correct me if i'm wrong, but i think you're really only supposed to list stuff from college. I wouldn't worry much about not having many special awards or honors, I think all i put down was dean's list.

i doubt they really care what you did in high school...they don't even ask for your high school transcript.

well, except for UCLA. they will ask for it eventually.
and Arizona asked for SAT I?!

i hope u still volunteer even if u dont have received any awards.
i would simply state what you have. as long as u have community service, shadowing hrs, quite possibly research experience, and of cos the passion to be a great dentist, grades, dat, etc, u will be fine.

i definitely have volunteering and shadowing experience in college, so that should be fine. I was just worried about leaving the awards and honors section pretty much blank, but i guess its not that big of a deal.

anyways, thanks for the input
