Episode #42: Are Summer Programs Worth It?

Are you mapping out your (or your child’s) summer plans? In this episode of Demystifying College Admissions, I will be sharing the pros and cons of summer programs, as well as what will help you (or your child) stand out.

TUNE IN BELOW:

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:

  • What a good reason for attending a summer program is
  • How you can stand out
  • When you should start searching for your passions
  • What college admissions officers are really looking for

NOTABLE QUOTES:

It’s a great way to explore and put yourself out there, but it’s not going to make you stand out.
I would say about 80-85% of my students don’t participate in summer programs.
You want to strategize your college applications in a way that makes sense.
This process is not about checking off the right boxes.
It has to be personable; it has to be authentic.
That’s why it’s so important to find what you like and what you love.
