Undergraduate Honors Program

Postby albatross92 » Mon Oct 10, 2011 7:16 pm

Hi everyone,
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.
Should I:
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.
