i think the honors program at BC sounds really interesting, though i realize i will not be admitted to it since my stats are nothing special. also... is it only for EA people? i thought RD was considered too but i am not sure. anyway, could people that got in post their stats so we can see what is needed? i'm just curious. thanks!

    got in Honors for CSOM

    GPA: 4.25 (top 2.5%)
    SAT: 2140

    i think what set me out was a lot of work experiance- and no I don't mean retail. I've been into IT work as well as graphic design in my free time.

    I was accepted to the CoA&S Honors Program with a 2160 SAT (750V 760W, 650M). My GPA was a 97.3 (weighted) and I took the most challenging course load at my school. I also took 4 years of both Spanish and Latin. Furthermore, I directed and produced a musical revue at my school.

    My son had 2270 SAT (700 m, 770 v, 800 w) with 92 avg ( = high class rank in his unranked highly selective private school). He was admitted without honors - but offered 4 years on campus housing. I understand the 4 years of housing may indicate he is likely in a fallback group to be offered honors if other honors selectees end up not going to BC. Does anyone have any observations on his nonselection or his chances for being selected for honors later? I.e., prior to arriving on campus.

    eli, I think the best thing to do is to call the honors program office. Info can be found here http://www.bc.edu/schools/cas/honors/admission/. It certainly doesnt hurt to have your son express interest, and request further information on the program and if there is a process to petition for admission at a later date, It never hurts to ask.

    Hey all,

    Congrats to everyone into college already, BC or otherwise! and Congradulations if you're in the honors program.

    I've just got a few questions. What exactly does the honors program entail? They're not very specific in the packet. Do all honors program students live in the honors program housing? I just read that there are about 140 honors students accepted. They have a whole required set of courses, is that the same amount that you'd need to cover the core anyway? B/c I definately find the topics interesting, but if I have to cover other requirements, honors program requirements, and pre-med requirements, that doesn't leave much time for anything else (partying haha). What's it like in the honors program? Is it really all that different?

    Last question, do people typically show up to the accepted students day sans parents?
