Hello! I am an incoming freshman who has been accepted into both the Honors Program and BIC. I will be Pre-Med as well. While I love history, literature, and the humanities in general, I am afraid that BIC will wreck my GPA, and the last thing I want for medical school is a bad GPA due to an optional program. I will definitely do the Honors Program. Is BIC worth it, or should I just take the normal liberal arts core courses? I really want to like it, I just fear for my GPA. I should note that I am not afraid of a challenge and have done well in the past in AP and honors courses (although I know that college rigor is different), but I just don't want to get into an impossible situation.
One other random question: how many classes usually grade by the +/- system rather than letter grade? Are honors classes more or less likely to have the +/- system or is it random?
