I received a brochure from this organization today - just wondering if anyone knows about/has participated in one of their programs?

    I received the very same letter today also. Is presidential classroom like exclusive or is it just a letter they send out when they get my name on a list from the college board? Are their programs any good? or.. what? does it look good for college applications (hehe im doing mine). But u know im just wondering. Any info would be superb!

    I really want to apply for this program, but the $150 non-refundable application fee is making me reluctant.

    Its not that prestigious, especially since they say they will probally offer you a 60% scholarship if your GPA is above like 3.0 I believe. I got a letter too but I dont believe its of any major worth, certainly nothing like RSI or even 1% of it.

    I did the National Security and Intelligence session at Presidential Classroom last week - had a great time!! There may not be too many requirements to get in other than community/school involvement and good grades, but out of the 170 students there, I was surprised how well-rounded and reasonable everyone was. I really feel that they couldn't have possibly filtered out students any better - it was an unbelievable group. And it's definitely worth it even if you don't mention it to colleges (but you should anyway). PM with any questions.
