    You have honors if you're on the Dean's List or have an extremely high gpa (3.7 or above). I know that sounds normal for kids on this board, but to maintain a 3.7 or above is very difficult at Northwestern. I'm hovering around a 3.5 and it's difficult to increase my GPA because a class can suck if you have the wrong professor.

    What GPA do you need to be on Dean's List? Most schools set it at 3.5.
