Honor societies

  1. Oct 1, 2009 #1
    I've never been a "society" kind of guy. I don't really know why, it's just that something about them just doesn't fit me.
    However, I was invited to join my University's chapter of Phi Kappa Phi. I hadn't planned to join, but I decided to look at their website and it seemed like a decent society to join.

    I have a degree in Kinesiology from 2001 and have decided to study mathematical physics. I'll be applying to grad schools in a year or so and am worried that I won't have enough time to get any undergraduate research. As a recent transfer (I took my first year at a University in the area my wife was finishing her Dental school), I'm worried I won't even have enough time to get to know any professors well enough to have them write a letter of recommendation....

    Considering that, is it any benefit at all for your graduate school application to have "Phi Kappa Phi" on it? I suppose I should take anything I can considering my time constraints, but I just wanted to know what people think since I know a few people here have served on graduate admissions.
