Departmental Honors/Writing a Thesis?


<p>I am going to be a senior in the fall, with a major in Business and a Minor in International Affairs with an East Asian concentration. I have made highest honors and the Dean's list every semester but this last semester (long story, but my GPA is still strong, even with a more average semester) and I need to decide whether or not I should write a thesis next year. I need to write a thesis to graduate with departmental honors, but I am trying to decide if that is worth it.</p>

<p>The professor for the thesis seminar, who is the chair of the Business dept, has been extremely difficult to deal with on a number of occasions, and I've been really unhappy with the dealings I've had with her so far. Therefore, I am wary of taking her class.</p>

<p>So my question is, for getting into the top law schools, would receiving departmental honors be an important addition to my application? Or would it not really have any impact?</p>

<p>Thank you.</p>

<p>Not going to make a difference. Are you planning to apply this fall? If that's the case, schools presumably wouldn't know whether you were going to get departmental honors or not.</p>

<p>Oh. Excellent point. haha I guess I always think of law school admissions offices as being omniscient or something. Thank you!</p>
