Pre College = college admission later?

<p>Debating to offer to send my D to VCU for a Pre College program in sculpture. D did the SAIC program last year. She loved the program. It was insinuated that by going to a pre college program you have a better chance for admission / scholarships. D has decided SAIC is not her college of choice, but VCU is her college of choice when she applies next year (currently a junior) . D did love the intensive summer program and would love to go, but to VCU this time. so does Pre COllege help with Admissions/Scholarship? thanks for any replies.</p>
