Hi, Ester: the question of whether or not to take honors classes and/or programs boils down to what you think you can handle AND what you like to do best. I remember working on the admissions committee at Harvard when candidates would ask, "Is it better to have a lot of extracurriculars/internships or to get good grades/honors?" The answer was always, "Yes." In other words, if you can handle it, take honors programs and do extracurriculars and internships. It's a tall order, but employers will value all your accomplishments and experience. If you have to choose between honors programs and internships, I would favor internships because they give you experience and help you create contacts in your target industry. Taking time off to gain experience is not a bad idea, necessarily, but it does put you a bit off schedule for graduation. Ultimately, your best advice will come from those in your target industry. So, see if you can find some alumni from your school (your career center should have these contacts) and take time to connect. You'll find a lot of confidence in your decision after you talk to some of them. Hope this helps a bit . . . but follow up if you have more questions.
