The UCLA admitted Student profile claims that the 75th quartile takes 25 semesters of honors courses. I am wondering does the 25 semesters of honors courses mean 25 by the time the student applies to UCLA? So that would be 25 semesters by the end of the junior year? Or is it 25 semesters at the end of their senior year? I am assuming that honors courses also includes AP?

That refers to UC-approved honors, AP, and UC-transferable college courses completed by the end of senior year.

Any Questions?
