PreCollege moved to online format-- worth it?
My daughter's Precollege program (Screenwriting at LMU) just announced its going to be online only this summer (not surprising). My question is, "Is is worth it?" The original cost of the 2 week program was ~$5800 with R&B, field trips, etc. Online is $2400. for two weeks. Seems high to me. I can only compare it to an online course with JHU/CTY which it ~$1000. On one hand it seems like a ripoff, on the other hand, what else will she be able to do this summer? Thoughts? Please don't bother with the comments about it being camp for rich kids, won't help with college admission, etc. We don't care. She's only a freshman and is interested in the topic and that is what drive our interest in the first place.19 replies
