Does anyone know the importance of graduating with "Honors" in Physics or Engineering Physics as an undergrad? I have a chance to graduate with "Honors" but I have to put more work into an Honors thesis before I graduate.
I just spoke to an advisor and he told me that when he was on the board for the grad program at my school (a well known public University), he said he didn't even see if the students graduated with Honors. But, for places like Harvard, or top ten, it might be something that gets looked at. Does anyone know about this? Basically graduating from Honors from my school is having a 3.5+ overall, taking so many honors classes, and writing an Honors thesis before graduation.
Also, in terms of GPA, my advisor said overall GPA hardly matters and Physics gpa is most important. Are there "threshold" (or cutoff) gpa scores at the top 10 places?
thanks in advance for answering my questions, maybe it'll help others.
