    I was admitted to the Honors program in college. Anyone with experience?

    Hey, guys. Much to my surprise, I received a letter saying I was admitted into the Honors program. I didn't even apply. I was in honors classes in HS, but college is different. Has anyone ever done this before? I'm really paranoid about writing a thesis to pass! Like... holy crap I'm scared lol.


    Of course I'll do it. I really only want to stay at Berry until Emory or Vanderbilt accept me. Too religious. I HAVE to have that piece of paper with that name. I think this will help my chances of getting in (Counselor got my papers in past the deadline last fall , so I hope that's why I was rejected. And I did apply last-minute.) Even if I don't get in (I do have three more shots.. wish me luck) It'll be good for me. I'm feel privileged because only 60 out of all qualifying students are admitted, and class sizes are just around 15, so I think the small class size will be good for me. My major will be Pre-medicine.... or at least that's what it says on my papers. I thought you had to major in something under the science "umbrella" like Biology. There goes my social life but there's plenty of time to party when I'm an old fart who can't enjoy it. Damn lmao. Looks like I'll turn into a bookworm. I guess it's worth the sacrifice to get to where I want to be in the long run. And it's healthier for my liver lmao.

    This is the first time I've been nervous about college lol.

    Nice job. I wouldn't worry too much about an honors thesis they don't tend to be too rough for undergraduates.

    And don't worry about partying there will be plenty of time for that even in the honors program.

    Congrats! Go for it. You'll work your **** off of course, but I'm sure it will help you stand out and gain a better standing later. It's a great opportunity!

    Has anyone ever been in an Honors program? I mean.. I'm about to crap my pants lol

    I really think I shouldn't do any partying of any kind. It's the antithesis of a party college anyway, and I think I've sort of gotten burnt out on it in high school anyway. Maybe it was just something that needed to get out of my system.

    Something else I'm worried about is that I don't really know *how* to study lmao. I always coasted by in high school never applied myself, and somehow always got A's in everything and B's in math. And no, I didn't cheat :P I'm afraid that now that I will have to study a lot and work for it, I won't really know how.
