Honor List

At the close of the spring term an Honor List is calculated for all the classes, based upon the work of the year starting the previous summer, and divided into three groups; to be included, students must have been enrolled for at least two of the terms, have received at least five regularly recorded grades (i.e., other than CT, NC, or NR), and have no standing of Incomplete in any course for the year. The regulations of the following three paragraphs apply:

An eligible student with annual average exactly matching or exceeding the annual average of the lowest standing of the previous year’s top 5% of eligible students will be placed in the first honor group (i.e., will be designated as a Rufus Choate Scholar) for the year.

An eligible student with lower standing but with annual average exactly matching or exceeding the annual average of the lowest standing of the previous year’s top 15% of eligible students will be placed in the second honor group for the year.

An eligible student with lower standing but with annual average exactly matching or exceeding the annual average of the lowest standing of the previous year’s top 35% of eligible students will be placed in the third honor group for the year.

Approximately January 1 in the current academic year the annual averages for the past academic year of all the eligible students of that year (as defined in the first paragraph) will be examined and the lowest annual averages for the students in the top 5%, top 15%, and top 35% will be determined. These values accordingly govern the placement in honor groups for 2015-2016. Preliminary examination suggests that the required averages will closely approximate, in descending order 3.96, 3.85, 3.70.
