Honors College

I am just seeing this and don't know if you will even see my reply. It is my understanding that of the 1900 students eligible to apply for Honors College, they received 1500 applications. If it was as it has been in past years, they usually offer to 500 knowing that many of the top students are also getting scholarship offers elsewhere and will not come. They end up with 100 Chancellor's Fellows (full tuition) and 100 Centennial Fellows ($2,500 per year). There are also 10 EC Scholars but I am not sure if they are included in that 200. Since money is involved to increase the cap, we would need increased donations for scholarship.
