UPenn Honors?

Postby CarlaBee » Sun Feb 02, 2014 1:27 am

Does anyone know what GPA is required for honors at penn? I'm a 2L and just curious. Last semester, I got a B- and would like to know how much it may hurt me. I still have a 3.65, but don't think that'll be good enough. Does anyone know Penn's system?

Thanks in advance!

Calculation of honors is somewhat of a black box, but people have speculated here that around 3.6 is usually good enough for cum laude and 3.8 for magna.

Thanks for your reply! At least my chances at some kind of honors may still be okay, even if magna is (practically) out...
