Does participating in NUMATS increase admission chances for Northwestern?
My mom is convinced that me participating in the NUMATS (Northwestern University's Midwest Academic Talent Search) program when I was younger would have helped my admission chances at Northwestern if I had applied. I researched the program and didn't find anything suggesting that participating in the program improves admissions chances. Is my mom right? If not, what is the purpose/benefit of participating in the NUMATS program? Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this, I couldn't really tell where this question belongs.
