I know they say smaller classes are better for learning but I hate them so much. What I really dislike is how it allows for extra time for students to ask questions. I know this sounds like an insane reason, but I'm an impatient individual and 9 times out of 10 I don't need to have to ask questions. (Unless it's math, then I'll be asking the whole class!
But you should definitely go the honors way if you can. It would look more impressive on a resume.
