    How do adcoms look at honors courses taken? Do they give it same weight as regular courses, or considerably larger consideration when they make their decisions? Thanks!

    The honors courses I've taken don't even appear as honors courses on my transcript.

    I doubt it will make or break you, but I do think it can help. Honors courses show that you were willing to take on more work and learn something more in-depth (at most universities). Though honors grades are usually inflated...
