To Honors or not to Honors?

I was offered a chance to become a member of the Honors program and Phi Theta Kappa this week. Of course heck yeah I want Phi Theta Kappa, I'm just not sure if I want the Honors designation and the extra class work that comes along with it.

The scholarships available would be nice and the tuition reimbursement would be awesome, but I have no idea if an additional research project is the best idea with the crazy schedule I have this semester. All I need is a B in the class but an additional paper worth 10-20% of my grade? The pressure!

So at this point I have to go and meet with the advisor to see about what to do next and I have to do it pretty quick!

I'd feel better if I didn't feel like my GPA was teetering on the tip of my perpetual procrastination habit!


  1. Congratulations! That's a huge honor, and to me, probably worth the extra work to say you were a member on your resume when you graduate. It definitely puts you a step ahead of everyone else to an HR person!

  2. i was offered that but i didn't want to pay the 75 bucks to be in it...i thought i was a honor?

  3. Congrats! I'd be just as undecided as you if I were offered this opportunity. NA makes a good point about it being a plus on your resume!
