Honors Program-Should I attend?

<p>Hey everybody!
I am an international student and have been invited to attend the Honors Program this fall, I'm still contemplating whether or not to accept.</p>

<p>Could somebody please tell me what are the advantages and disadvantages of the HP? </p>

<p>A few upperclassmen have been telling me that the HP is really tough and just not worth it plus it mainly has classes designed for physics math and pure science majors(whereas I plan to major in ME)</p>

<p>Also since I don't have any AP credit whatsoever(just have credit for Chem1310 based on my SAT II score) how tough is it going to be to manage everything?Since it's going to be a complete change in environment for me-new country,new place,new friends,wont it be tough enough just to adjust?The added burden of HP,is just gonna make it worse-don't you think?</p>

<p>Does attending the HP offer any advantage inf getting into grad school/getting a job? And can I opt out of the HP mid way through incase I find it too tough to cope with?</p>

<p>Thanks a lot in advance!</p>

<p>There is a separate thread about the HP on College Confidential. Do read that also.</p>

<p>I've posted my query there as well!thanks for the heads up though.</p>

<p>No, Nikhil. We don't want you in honors. Go away.</p>


<p>YUP we totally should be!</p>
