edited April 2012 in Florida State University
I'm a Junior

Unweighted GPA: 3.4
Weighted GPA: 3.9

SAT: 1830
ACT: Haven't received my scores yet

APs:
Human Geography, US Government, Comparative Government, English Language, World History, Psychology, US History, Calculus AB
-Next year I'll be in: Statistics, Macro/Micro, English Lit, Latin, and Biology

(The majority of classes that weren't AP were honors, or requirements like PE)

ECs:
-4 Years of Cross Country (will be Captain as a senior--on a side note, will colleges be able to see that? Just curious)
-4 Years of Track (Captain as a senior)
-Vice President of Latin Club (Junior)
-President of Latin Club (as a senior)
-I'm also in a few other clubs/honor societies, but I didn't have a leadership position so I don't think they're worth mentioning

In-State Student

Thanks! And I've heard it's very hard to get into, but do I even have a prayer of being accepted into the Honors College?

    Accepted to regular admission - good. Honors - likely not:
    The average academic profile of students that were offered honors invitation in 2012 was as follows: 4.3 academic GPA*; 31 ACT composite, and 2070 SAT total.

    I'm with p2n. Accepted to FSU? Yeah, you've probably got a dang good shot. Acceptance to FSU Honors? I doubt it.

    Thanks for the replies! It makes me feel better that yall think I'm pretty safe getting into regular admission. As for the Honors college, that's what I figured, I'm still going to finish junior year strong just in case, but I won't be disappointed if I don't get in.

    And I've been looking at the FSU Honors page, and they say that there's another opportunity to apply after freshman year first semester, if you have a 3.8 college GPA. How hard would this be if I plan on being a Biology major? I just don't know how easy/hard it is to get As in college compared to high school.
