    MOSP is probably the best for math students.

    MathCamps is an option if you can't get in in MoSP

    Are you kidding me? MOSP is INCREDIBLY hard to get into (esp if you are a junior or senior). Not only would you have to qualify for the USAMO; you have to do very well on the USAMO (top 60 or so) to even qualify. Granted, the chances for freshmen and sophomores is higher for qualification into MOSP, but it's still hard nevertheless. Getting in basically says you're the top 60 of all math students in the nation. That's some prestige right there.

    In fact, MOSP > RSI and TASP because it's so hard.

    Meh. Depends. I've heard of people who turned down MOSP to go to RSI. That doesn't mean anything though, since RSI is a one-time thing. And they might not have been, well, too mathy.

    In addition to listing these programs, can people also add some background to them or put a link to web pages with information on them as well? It'd be a lot more helpful this way.

    I googled the journalism thing, and its apparently for students of color, and it is sponsored by the asian american journalist association. Fine for some of us, but not so fine for others. I just wanted to let you guys know.

    Later in the article it says that its open to all students, kind of different from what I saw earlier. This is weird, can anyone explain it?

    ^There is no race preference. The organization began in order to promote journalists of color--hence its name. However, their recent aims have shifted toward students and journalists of all races.

    The camp will accept all students of all color. The 40 they choose often end up becoming a very diverse group.

    Yeah, I applied to that camp (AAJA J camp) and I got rejected..little did I know how hard it is to get in. Do they base their applications off of GPA, or do they look for applicants who are ideally going to be juniors or seniors in the following school year?

    Adding to the math list:

    Canada/USA Mathcamp -- (personally I think it's more competitive, engaging, and fun than PROMYS) www.mathcamp.org

    SUMaC -- math.stanford.edu/sumac/

    There's a good program at UPenn's Wharton School of Business (it's supposedly the top summer program for business), LEAD. Here's the link:


    It's part of a greater program (still called LEAD) that's available at a variety of colleges. Here's the link to that:
