Are College Summer Camps/Pre-College Programs Worth my Money?
I'm asking this question because this summer, I had friends who went to famous colleges and payed for and attended their summer camps (1 week and longer) to learn a specialized subject (ex: game design, coding). They went to Stanford and USC, for example. It was also pricey. Do these camps/programs help in college admissions? Also, there are people I know who went to Ivy league Pre-college programs for 6 weeks. (Also pricey). Do college AOs like people who participate in these? Thank you.10 replies
