Summer programs generally do not guarantee you acceptance into any college or guarantee you scholarships, but they are a great chance for you to get your name out there and to explore a vast array of experiences. Our advice to students and parents looking at summer programs is to consider the following items:
1. Is it something you have a TRUE interest in?
2. Can you afford it? (Some programs are very pricy!)
3. Do you have the time?
4. Are you OK being away from home?
If you answer "yes" to these questions, then attending a summer program might be for you.
