I need some help Ags. My son is a high school senior and has applied to the honors program at TAMU and we're waiting to hear. He is a NMF and has all the grades/SAT scores to give him a good chance at being accepted. He met the Dec 1st deadline to be considered for scholarships, but we haven't heard.
First question...do they make a separate decision on acceptance into A&M versus acceptance into Honors? If he meets the Honors requirements, is he automatically accepted? He's in the top 1% of his high school.
Second question. He has already been accepted into Rice. A lot of people view that as a prestigious school. (They call themselves the Harvard of the South). It's about $46K/yr versus $20K at TAMU. Is it really worth it? Especially if he gets some scholarships through TAMU? He's going to major in ME.
