How do I distinguish myself?

Besides getting my grades up, and extracurriculars. Are their any summer programs or anything else that can make a difference in admissions? Thanks.

Awards are huge (Intel, Siemens, Google etc). Depending on individual schools, their summer schools might be a slight plus (although most selective schools do not).

Other well-known camps include Boy’s/Girl’s State/Senate, HOBY, etc

TASP and RSI are very prestigious summer programs. RSI has like a 60% acceptance rate to Harvard. However these programs are very competitive with admission rates below 10%.
