<p>Never heard of it. :rolleyes:</p>

<p>yah i havent either</p>

<p>This is a legitamate and very good program. If you want to have the experience of a lifetime, sign up. I went to China in 2006.</p>

<p>I disagree with many of these posts, especially by those who were never directly involved with ISLP, and find it discouraging that so many people would make these types of assumptions about the program. I attended the Delegation on Business in Australia in June 2011, and found it to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my lifetime. Not only was it a great opportunity to network with other honors students and make new friends from around the world, but the presentations given at the University of Melbourne and in Sydney (by famous advertising experts) were unique and relevant to my studies as an MBA candidate. I even worked with my university to create an independent study based on the information from the program, and used it as my final elective credit. The program is prestigious in that the majority of the students in attendance were invited through affiliation with Golden Key, Phi Theta Kappa, or other exclusive honors societies. Yes, it is expensive, but before I made my decision I considered all of the costs that were included: upscale hotels, many meals, transportation around the cities and experienced tour guides (this was a major help!), attraction admissions (Sydney Opera House, etc.), and the cost of the classes. If you were to travel to Australia independently for 10 days and do the same things (without the academic benefit), it would cost nearly twice what you will pay for the ISLP program. Not to mention, it is a truly one-of-a-kind experience! I am proud and excited to have added this experience to my resume, and would recommend the program to any student. I hope this helps.</p>

<p>Two brand new members claiming the legitimacy of this program... Not sure if I believe it.</p>

<p>I stopped reading at Golden Key = "exclusive honor society."</p>
