    $20,000*. Either way, is being wealthy a negative trait in admissions? Note most offer financial aid.

    Either way, summer programs tease out the student is outgoing, likes to meet new people, likes to learn, doesn't like to be idle, isn't afraid of new environments. All traits adcoms like to see, yes?

    How is this different from getting a job? It shows the kid is outgoing, likes to meet new people, likes to learn, doesn't like to be idle and isn't afraid of new environments.
