one quick question. I found the following on the EECS website:
The EECS Honors Degree Program is designed to provide very talented undergraduate students with more flexibility at the undergraduate level. Honors students select an academic concentration outside of EECS, and are allowed twenty extra units beyond the B.S. degree requirements to explore this "breadth" area.
I don't understand. What does it mean I am "allowed" 20 extra units? Arent' I allowed to take as many units as I want (up to 20.5 at least) every semester anyway? So what's the benefit of 20 "extra" units?
