Honors Program

<p>So I was thinking about applying for the honors program for UCLA. :D</p>

<p>Wondering: How hard is it to get it? Is it purely based on your essay? >_<</p>

<p>Comment: I dun like the essay topic -_______- <em>sigh~~~</em></p>


<p>Use the search function. There are hundreds of threads/posts on this topic.</p>

<p>uhh, from what I hear, it's purely based on gpa. the essay is a formality. In fact, i applied for honors winter of my second year, and i didn't even have to write an essay</p>

<p>bruinboy: wat gpa would that be? :)</p>

<p>For freshmen, there are two options. You need both a weighted GPA of at least 4.1 and an SAT score of at least 2080/ACT score of at least 31. The other option is to be in the top 3% of your class.</p>

<p>Applying</a> for the Honors Program</p>

<p>^^^I realize you need those qualifications, but is everyone who writes a half-decent essay admitted? The factors you mentioned are only part of the qualification; the essay is the second part...</p>

<p>"the essay is a formality"</p>

<p>this is correct. just suck it up and do it... you'll regret it if you don't apply just because there's an essay! (it's only 500 words...)</p>

<p>ahh, I see :P</p>

<p>I was just wondering how much time I should spend on my essay :P
I'll just wing it then >_<</p>
