    Do any pre-college summer programs exist that focus on search engine optimization (SEO), front end development, or digital marketing or computer science programs exist for rising sophomores? Thanks!

    Don't join CMU AP/EA summer program. It's waste of 7 to 8 K of your money. Seems like CMU themselves don't value the grades of their AP/EA program. My Son who attended the summer program and had Strong A in 2 courses (1 computer science), didn't get admission to their CSC despite other strong credentials (Perfect SAT in 1st Seating, 4.0 Unweighted GPA, Robotics school team for 3 years, various Math competition and participation AIME etc)

    Thanks for the input. Good to know.. Where did your son end up deciding to go? Were there any other programs you might recommend in the CS field? Thanks!!

    He is probably going to Berkeley MET program (Founding class of EECS + Business dual degree). Based on my read on admitted student profiles, Stanford summer program looks good. I would also suggest to look for internship or research opportunity.

    Hi, can anyone give me some information on the Stanford Clinical Summer Internship program? My daugther just got accepted (she was rejected from the SIMR program) and she does not know if it is worth going as it is a paid summer program

    I'm sophomore right now, and I'm realizing now that I've kind of missed the boat as far as summer programs. Does anyone know of any cheaper programs that are still accepting applications, preferably in and around Illinois? Law, writing, and the performing arts are some of the fields I'm interested in, but I know I'm late, so anything you know would be useful at this point. Thanks!
