On the Purdue website it says that people will be notified by February 15th.

Does anyone know what the average statistics are for students in the Purdue Honors College?

I’ve never seen statistics published for incoming honors college students. This is what Purdue says: “The selection process for Honors College invitations is holistic. GPA, test scores, aptitude for interdisciplinary learning, leadership and engagement are all considered.”

Okay thank you!
