I am a sophomore, and was invited to apply to my college's Honors Program. I currently have a 4.0 GPA, and the Honors Program has the advantage of letting senior students write a senior thesis for credit. It also allows students to design their own courses, but that is not a privilege limited to strictly Honors students. There aren't really any other advantages to the program - no special internships, early registration times, etc., but I'm kind of worried about taking any risks that would adversely affect my GPA. I would also have to take one interdisciplinary course of any offered by the Program every semester, none of which look particularly easy.
1) Get into the Program, and game the system by doing the thesis (which I really want), and then graduating before I do the interdisciplinary course?
2) Not apply at all. I've seen practically everyone emphasize LSAT and GPA. Is this a soft that is worth the risk?
Thanks for all of your opinions.
