For me, I didn't even try for honors... couldn't get in and really wasn't interested in getting into it. Had a 28 ACT, 3.94 u/w, 4.6 w, lots of ECs incl sports, comm service and county and state level leadership positions. I got into the engineering school and am REALLY hoping that I get a (even small) scholarship. USC has the deal where if you get a scholarship you automatically get instate... which is really cheap. USC was my cheaper safety school even without aid.
Congrat to those who got in and my condolences to those who did not- I'm sure you'll find your place at another school.
