How Competitive is Prep Scholars

Is the Prep Scholars program highly competitive? What would you estimate its acceptance rate to be. I likely won’t be able to take advantage of their summer programs/campus visits since I’m a US citizen living halfway across the world, so I wanted to know how valuable it would be before sinking so much time and effort into it.

I was a Prep Scholar but I am not sure how competitive it really is. As long as you fit the criteria and are creative with your writing (I believe this is the most important factor), you have a solid shot! No matter what, I believe it is totally worth it- especially since it is free! If you get in you are also more likely to become a finalist, and that is very notable for top colleges! I say go for it, I could never be where I am today if I hadn’t.
