Hey, I'm enrolled in the Honors College at my University and with only a few weeks left before my first semester, I'm becoming a bit worried... Up till a few days ago, I've been glad about admission into the Honors College. But the other day I ran into a recent graduate of my university who had been accepted into a state med. school (TX), and he discouraged placement in the Honors College. He explained that it would force me to take courses which were both unrelated to my major and would prove more difficult to maintain a high gpa in. The courses are focused on history and literature, and I'm forced to take at least one per semester and a certain amount in order to graduate as a member. For instance, instead of taking just Eng. Comp II, I have to take Eng. Comp. II H. as well as Human Situation I (literature class). I want the benefit of smaller classes and better professors, but is it really worth risking my GPA? I plan on double majoring in Biology and Art History (the latter is one of my creative passions). I'm assuming Art History will cover any favor towards liberal arts majors (in terms of med school applications), so won't membership in the Honors College be superfluous? I'm just really confused. I don't want to start off poorly! Please advise!
