Hey, I was able to get in Collegiate Entry, and I know lots of people who were successful in gaining entrance. UGA Honors allows Freshmen to enter after their first semester or first year. The requirements are that you take at least 15 hours (with at least 14 graded, meaning only one credit hour can be pass/fail) and at least 3.75 cumulative GPA. I would say that the higher your GPA is, the better your chances of admission. I would say a 3.9 plus and you have an excellent shot. As long as it's a 3.75 and up though, you have a good chance seeing as you have a good essay (take it seriously! Many don't because it's only one page and the question is usually why you want to be in Honors and what opportunities you will pursue in Honors, and those people are usually disappointed in the end.) Just do really well academically and be able to sell yourself in an essay. I think you'll have an excellent shot!
I don't know if you're like me, but I remember thinking when I was a Senior that if I don't get into UGA Honors, I'm definitely not going there and going to another school on my list. However, I'm really glad I stuck it out because UGA is excellent. I would have been highly disappointed had I not been accepted in Honors, but I now like the school so much that I don't think I would have transferred. I don't know if you really like Emory or not, but if you don't love it now or know much about Emory, definitely ask around and see if you'll like the quality of life there. I have a friend at Emory now who chose it because of its prestige and because she didn't make Honors here, and she's now trying to transfer back because she isn't happy at Emory. I just wanted to make sure this doesn't apply to your case. I hope you'll be happy and good luck!
