Episode #52: Summer Programs: Worth It or Not?

During this Coronavirus pandemic, are you wondering what you should do with your high school child’s summer plans? In this episode of Demystifying College Admissions, I will be replaying a popular episode, sharing my honest opinion about summer programs.

TUNE IN BELOW:

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:

  • What a good reason for attending a summer program is
  • How your child can stand out without attending a summer program
  • 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
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.
