Summer programs and its effects on university admissions

nervousfreshienervousfreshie Registered User Posts: 285 Junior Member

I was wondering if not attending any summer programs will affect my university admission chances. I am currently a junior, and I have not attended any summer programs for the past 2 summers due to family commitments, and I will not be attending one this summer as I was rejected to one I had applied, and it was already too late to apply to anything worth going? I am planning to just study for the SATs this summer, and just improve my grades and be prepared for the 2nd year IB? I will also be volunteering at several places, and I signed myself up for an outdoor adventure thing... I really hope that university AOs won't think that I'm wasting my life away? I just really need some assurance that not going to summer programs will affect my university chances... I will be applying to 1 or 2 ivies, and several public ivies, and I am an international student from canada.
