I agree with both of you guys stating that it is to your benefit to do something that you are genuinely interested in. This has been said in numerous LSD threads, and I think is very very logical advice; however, many times it is reasonable to ask "if this major or that activity will help in the long run." Certainly you should be interested in something to pursue it, but lets talk about something like an honors program...
Perhaps you would like to be intellectually challenged, and be in classes with other honors students, etc....but I would assume that you would like your efforts to pay off in some way or another, not just for law school admissions but on resumes and within the school community as well. I believe these questions are very valid, and in my experience with an honors program, its primary benefit was the extra attention and resources garnered within the undergrad institution. It just made professors throughout all colleges in the university more accessible for any questions I may have had.
