Senior Thesis - Importance in admissions

Postby MagicallyDelicious » Fri Mar 26, 2010 11:05 am

I'm expecting the answers to both of these to be low, but:

1. How much do adcoms care whether you did an honors thesis?
2. How much do they care whether the thesis received honors, high honors, or highest honors? Does this matter whatsoever in your chances of admission?

They seemed to be impressed by it - mine received "honors" (dont know about what that is in your ranking system-there was only honors for mine), but it is going to be published by the school and used as an in-class text. When you have something like that attached to the fact you did a thesis, it seems to be more alluring.
