I'm trying to do this program too. I've been trying to do research on the web but the only substantial information I have is from the site itself which is very vague and a couple posts on this site.
I heard that only 5 people can get in for each city. Is this true? I would like to know what my chances are realistically so I know if I need a back up plan for this summer. I have done extensive community service, have good grades, and I've had jobs.
Also, the application is pretty extensive. There's a 1000 word cap on each of the eight required questions. Am I really supposed to write that much? Does it matter if I do, as long as my response are good? The deadline for the application is this friday, so I'd like to know soon.
Finally, is this on a first come first serve basis?
Sorry for all the questions!!! It sounds like an awesome opportunity, but I really want some more feedback!!!
