    yeah, I applied for Norlin Scholars, but I still haven't heard back....

    Do you know if you're into either one? Are you planning on doing their Honors Program too? I'm not sure how much work each program requires.....

    what other schools are you considering? or are you already set on CU?

    I got into the "honors program" (not sure what that means) but I got rejected from Norlin today. I'm not too disappointed though; from the letter it sounds like they only accepted 15%. I'm pretty sure PLC is more selective - my school (which is in Boulder, and generally gets about 7 people/year into Stanford) usually only gets 1 per year into PLC.

    PLC is pretty tough, I think more people apply than norlin, but they do have around 50 kids who matriculate as PLC students whereas norlin has less (or at least they used to).
    The honors program means you are in the top 10% of students there, you get to take some smaller classes if they have honors classes in anything you want to be studying, that and you can graduate with university honors.
    I know a lot of kids who applied to PLC, I don't think they've heard back yet, but 2 kids including me got Norlin at my school, don't ask me how they do the selection, seems pretty arbitrary to me.

    They have two Norlin Scholars and one staff member read each application, and each assigns a number of points. The high scores get in. (At least, that's what my friend (who's a Norlin scholar) told me). I'm kind of surprised I didn't get in...oh well.
