Disregarding the prestigious internships, like interning for NIH (or so I've heard), which matters more for admissions: the internship itself or the fact that you're interning? As in, is it considered not-worth-my-while to intern for a small organization? Or is it something I should look into anyway? Because I have no idea which internships are considered "prestigious." I have the same problem with things like jobs. I'm a pretty good student in the sense that I have good grades, high SAT scores, many APs, etc. But I have no idea what I'm supposed to do over the summer and what would "look the best" on my resume (I waited too long to apply to more prestigious summer programs, and now don't know what to do).
