<ul>
<li><p>for high school students applying for CAl summer classes, what are the admissions state (ei, percentage of people who get in )</p></li>
<li><p>what's the avarage GPA of people they accept?</p></li>
<li><p>if you have done cal summer school, how was it?</p></li>
</ul>

<p>The Berkeley summer school classes maintain open admissions. Basically, if you pay the fee, you can go.</p>

<p>Your back! Lets get ready to Rumblllllllllllle!</p>

<p>When did I ever leave?</p>

<p>UCLA and Cal are some of the best schools in the United States!!!</p>

<p>Sakky's correct, if what you're talking about is taking college classes-- not one of the summer programs like Academic Talent Development Program aimed specifically at high school students. There may be an age minimum, but beyond that it's just a matter of registering and paying fees for summer session.</p>

<p>Seriously??? that's so cool!
Don't i have to apply somehow, like send them a transcript or letters of rec or anything?</p>

<p>or is it really just that simple. u sign up, you pay and you go? I'm not talking about the pograms aimed at high school students though, i want college classes.</p>

<p>You just sign up, pay, and you go.</p>

<p>I don't know that Berkeley Summer School is exceptional in this regard, however. It's fairly standard fare at most schools across the country. If you want to pay just to take some classes, then most schools are happy to take your money. For example, you can sign up for regular (non-summer) Berkeley classes through Berkeley Extension through the concurrent enrollment program.</p>

<p>Or, if you're an adult, you can take summer college classes (yes, college classes) at Stanford summer school. All you have to do is sign up and pay. </p>

<p>Note - Stanford does have a unified summer program targeted to HS students that does have an admissions process. But I don't see any reason why a HS student couldn't just sign up for the regular Stanford summer classes which are open-admissions. I rather doubt that Stanford would turn down your money.</p>

<p>Wow really? that makes me really happy. Does taking such classes (and doing well in them) look really impressive to colleges? keep in mind i'm not doing this just for that factor, i truly am enthusiastic about the classes. </p>

<p>Also. What about schools like Harvard, Princeton, etc.? I knew a girl who took summer school at Princeton and i believe she had to go through a very rigorous admissions process</p>

<p>I don't know if it looks "really" impressive. It's certainly much more impressive than sitting around doing nothing for a whole summer. </p>

<p>But again, we have to make the distinction between special summer secondary-school programs that some schools run, and just general summer classes. The former can be selective, often times very much so. The latter is almost always open admissions. For example, there is a big difference between the Harvard Secondary-School Summer Program (SSP) and Harvard Summer School.</p>

<p>Can anyone suggest some other great summer school programs? I think even for summer school Harvard would be an EXTREMELY huge reach for me. (if u wanna look at my stats, they are posted. Just click on my name and find other posts by me. in several they are listen in detail). </p>

<p>I would love it to be in California, however I don't mind out of state.</p>
