What should I put for Honors if my school has no honors, in order to get an accurate chance calculation.

Thank you

So I presume you are talking about # of honors classes. If your school has AP but honors just fill in the AP section and put a 0. If you school no AP nor Honors you’d put 0 for both but make sure to put 0 classes offered in the side box. I don’t know how to adjust the # of honors offered but essentially if I remember correctly I’d put 5-7 for semi selective schools that admit about 50% like PennSt. Then put 7-9 for schools that admit 15-40. For admit rates lower 15 just put 11 as there was to nullify that field.

The reason I suggest that is that SHOULD essentially produce no bonus for rigor but at the same time no malleus for lack of rigor. I’m not entirely sure if the amounts as I’m more familiar with how many APs to add but since it was revamped I don’t have the exact numbers written down to reference as it was a FAQ. If you’d like I’d email for a more complete explanation.

Hope this helps and feel free to comment if you’s like clarification as I’d be more than happy to help!
