Not sure if a thread was made for this yet, but I was just wondering who applied? For any past alumni who went, what was it like?

    Hi, I applied to this program. Did you receive a response yet? If so, when did you submit? I submitted it right around February 13th.
  • ThePandaScholarThePandaScholar Posts: 18Registered User New Member
    I submitted mine around the 23rd of Feb. They said they got my application today and told me that I should get a response in about ten days.... Really hope I get in. Do you have any idea what they're looking for?

    Dammit I just got my rejection letter today too :( Anyone know the stats for how many people applied this year, because the letter mentioned that they were "overwhelmed" this year with apps(or maybe this is just the standard lingo for rejections letters?)???

    I went last year. XD There were 88 kids last summer and I know many that were rejected. The seniors who went were accepted to Harvard, Oxford, Yale, etc. Just so you know that it is really top notch students.

    I went as a sophomore. The teacher recommendations are really important. If you don't get a ten on the maturity part of the evalution you won't get it. Um, they pay attention to class rank and GPA I think. And prior science experience is not that important, because I didn't have much.

    But other than that I am not sure how they pick people. If you feel you were wrongly rejected you can appeal it (one kid got in last year that way).

    There were some people that I wondered how they got in ... If you know what I mean. Lol.

    Congratulations, SSTPers 2012. You will have the best summer of your life.
