How helpful is it to graduate with honors when applying to a math PhD program? I have room for two advanced sequences next year out of algebra, analysis, and topology. I really, really want to study topology, but the requirement to graduate with honors is algebra and analysis.

If it's going to make a big difference, I'll just do that and wait till grad school for topology.

we tend to believe advisors who say that their student has the ability to do mathematics. if performance in an honors course adds one teacher who will say, it helps.
