Hi, I'm a rising senior and I am currently looking into the Leadership Institute summer program at Brown University. I've heard that this program doesn't really boost my application in any way, and I know that some people might say "you have better things to do in summer than to waste your money on an expensive summer program that won't even help you a lot," but what I'm actually hoping to gain from this program is pure experience on the campus of my dream school (Brown is my first choice school)...and I also think living on campus would later help me write my essay for Brown!
What I'm really worried about is – how is the age group for this program in general? I'm kinda scared that I would be the only rising senior in the program..Would I be able to find people of my own age? If anyone's been into this program before, please tell me about anything you know!
p.s. The summer program in Brown won't be the only thing I do this summer. I already have an internship position secured in my own country, even though it's going to be for only about a month.....Is one month too short for interning?
