I'm an international student from an European country, Bulgaria. I've won a few national literature awards. In Bulgaria they are equivalent to "4th place awards", "merit-based awards" or "consolation prize". I had a couple of short stories published, I've written 7 high fantasy novels, I had my debut novel published and now I'm having the second one. Is this a good achievement for someone aiming at top colleges?
Also, I've won four scholarships - all merit-based, one on a national level, two on a municipal level and the last one on a school level. Should I write them down in my application? What would top colleges think of them?
