Pre-College Summer Architecture Programs?
I have been looking into several Pre-College Summer Architecture Programs, mainly Cornell, Washington University in St. Louis, Cal Poly, and others. Are these programs beneficial in any way? Will they boost my chances of getting accepted into some of these schools? Are they worth the cost? Will it look bad on one college application if I attend a different college's programs but not their own?1 replies
