Help me Eff-List Kenobi.

I can't decide whether or not to do the school's honors thesis program.

If I do, I need to write an eighty page thesis on whether or not the War on Terror has led to a decline in the international benefits traditionally associated with the Anglo-American "special relationship."

If I don't, I'll graduate in December and start looking for a job.

Pros:
- Looks good on resume? But how good? Any better than having a 3.9? Don't law schools only care about LSAT and GPA?

Cons:
- Pain in the ass.
- Blah on the seminar teacher.
- Didn't pick a good adviser.
- Not terribly interested in the subject.





Your thoughts? When I applied for the program, I thought I'd go to grad school. Then I realized that if I'm this unwilling to write an eighty page paper, I shouldn't be going to grad school anyway.

It sounds like an interesting topic at least... but I never went in for the whole honors thing. I don't have anything against it, but I couldn't bring myself to write that much especially when I hated doing the even minor amount of writing I was asked to do to graduate. Not to mention I just couldn't see myself doing the research on any topic no matter how much it fascinated me. I was a real flake in college. But either way, you should follow your heart? Or at least your stomach.

If you feel like the cons are outweighing the pros, why are you even contemplating it?
