    First, congratulations on your outstanding academic and extracurricular achievements, and good luck with your applications.

    Here is some information about admission to the UW Honors Program:

    “While your academic record is important in your Honors application, we have a holistic admissions process that looks beyond your academic record to your written materials and evaluates students based on fit for our mission, values, and curricular goals. Students admitted to the UW Honors Program have a variety of academic and personal experiences.”

    https://honors.uw.edu/apply/faq/

    In the past, the Honors Program website published the following statistics (which should be read in light of the holistic admissions process described above):

    I believe I read decisions are announced between 3/1 and 3/15. We had a friend find out last year on 3/7 if that helps at all! Good luck!
