to the actual college, how long would you expect it to take to find out if you got in?

 

My son was accepted to the University in Dec.  He was invited to apply to the honors program and applied by Feb. 2nd.   Wondering  how long it will take to find out?  

 

Do you think he will know by April when he needs to make a firm decision about going there or not?

Oh, yes, I would definitely expect him to know by April.

Ok, I hope so.  It will help with the decision (although he is still leaning towards this college anyway.) and help with where he will live.  They have specific areas for the honors program kids to live.

I'd be shocked if they didn't let you know well before final decisions are due!

Definitely have him start inquiring if you haven't heard by early April.  DD applied to a couple honors programs at different schools. She has heard back from one of them but not the other at this point.

DS found out about college acceptance in Jan and just heard about Honors College acceptance and financial aid awards this week. I would think that Honors College acceptance would come out about the same time that financial aid info comes out and surely before any deadlines!

Did he apply for both at the same time?  Ours was Nov. application.  Dec. 15th acceptance.  Feb. 2nd application to Honors Program.

No, not at the same time. His application was in by September I think, but we didn't hear about acceptance til January. He waited to finish the Honors College application til after all his other apps for admission to other colleges we're complete, so maybe he submitted that one by December or so? Can't remember when exactly but it definitely wasn't at the same time as admission.
