As the mom of an 18 year old with many Asperger traits (he refused the diagnosis), we went one step further. My son had a very low GPA of 2.3 and low class rank, but high SAT scores. He applied to the honors departments at each college and university at the same time as general admission, visiting the department chairs when he toured the universities. He also decided on a major (political science)so sat in on lectures, the same day and met the heads of the political science departments. He submitted extra essays for honors, along with his general admittance, and mentioned in his essays that he had visited the campus and was interested in dual majoring, Political Science and Economics. He was offered honors placements at two excellent state universities. It also helped that he had a pretty good extra-curricular resume.
