Answer by raflorsheim
No. Your record is interesting, but your SAT scores probably didn’t make you one of the applicants with the highest combined index scores. I don’t know what percentage of Northeastern students are in their honors program, but it is rarely very many, so in putting together their honors program, there were others who were better qualified. You can still have a good experience there without honors.
