Experience with CTY Talent Search (Johns Hopkins)

<p>I took the CTY talent search test a while back. I qualify for all of the programs in the CTY course guide that DON'T require you to have taken a previous summer course. So I'd leave my home for about six weeks to go to a college (Such as Skidmore, Lancaster, Johns Hopkins University) and take a class of my choosing there.</p>

<p>Some of my relatives who've been involved with it (both MIT graduates, mind you) were in the program and said they've enjoyed it. If anyone here has been involved with it, I'd appreciate your help.</p>

<p>See <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/summer-programs/445588-experiences-cty-summer-camp.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/summer-programs/445588-experiences-cty-summer-camp.html&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/p>

<p>chaseholl's link is pretty good. There are a lot of places to read testimonials (mostly positive) about CTY including Post-CTY</a> Depression I could personally testify to it being a great experience.</p>

<p>Question though, I do not remember there being 6 week programs. I only remember 3 week sessions unless you plan on going to both sessions? Two sessions in one summer may be overboard or annoying due to new group of people half way through. Or is this a new special program?</p>

<p>Another question, how old are you? I feel like CTY is best for middle schoolers and freshmen, maybe sophomores. When you are older, there's a greatly option of other programs to do instead that offer different and, in my opinion, better experiences.</p>
