Not a lot of traffic in this forum, but in case someone is thinking about honors, my daughter was just admitted to TTU Honors and here are her basic stats:
GPA: 3.5 UW
ACT: 31 (her SAT was much lower, the ACT was a better test for her)
Solid course rigor: 12 APs (over all four years)
ECs: varsity soccer (team is ranked nationally, but she is not playing in college), national honors society, internship for global wildlife non-profit (all four years)
Her essays were very unique and well-written. Her LoRs would have been good and supported her essays well.
She attended a TTU Scholars Event and was able to converse with Dean of Honors College, he was very cool and I think they had a good talk.
Very proud of her work and we are looking forward to her next steps at TTU.
