Honors Program

Hey, so I wanted to get accepted for the Honors Program at UT Austin or UT Dallas. Do y'all have any advice on how to get in, and a general idea of who usually gets in?

I don't know specifics but counselors always mention that the requirements are usually higher than for being admitted as a student to the school as a whole. For example they might require that you take AP exams or have a certain number of credits in core subjects that is higher than the required.

Melokenzie is right - most honors programs admit students that have higher stats than the student body as a whole. Aim to be at or above the 75th percentile of test scores and take as many advanced courses as you can. Best of luck!
