    It won't boost her college app just for attending. It's not like she earned some national award after years of dedication and savvy. Not like winning an admit to a rare state dept program or getting that NASA internship. It's not even selective. It's just another "pay to play" event held by a for-profit venture.

    I know kids who attended the NYLF conference for medicine. They had a good time. The cost was chump change to their families.

    But when adcoms see it, what do you think they think? OMG, this kid got the same invite thousands of others get and actually went??? She must be special?

    so my daughter just got this in the mail tonight. i found this extremely odd, due to her grades being not up to par. so i started searching for more information. they are very convincing. im glad i stumbled upon this thread. im sure the program is very enlightening, but i dont have $1000 to send into the void, nor the money for air fair and lodging for three days.
