Summer Humanities and Social Science Program

<p>I received via email an invitation to Amherst's Summer Humanities and Social Science Program. It seems really exciting but also demanding. Has anyone else got one?</p>

<p>i was just curious, when did you get this email? i am going to be a freshman at amherst this fall, but i didn't receive that email at all! do you know whether they selected only a few students to attend this/what are the requirements to have been invited?</p>

<p>Admission is offered to incoming first years who haven't had traditional preparation in academic writing and scientific research.</p>

<p>You should attend. It's a great way to meet your fellow classmates early on, make friends and bond. If you take the program seriously, you stand to gain a lot from it.</p>

<p>Is this the same program as the Match and Science Program?</p>

<p>Must have been tired....the prior post should say MATH. Does Amherst run 2 summer programs?</p>

<p>Can you request to be put in this program?</p>

<p>It was invites that went out. Only a few go out.</p>

<p>I know invitations were sent out, but I was hoping to hear from someone who had perhaps called in to ask for admission to the program.</p>

<p>E-mailed about the program, it's by invitation only. My host attended this, however, and he told me it was pretty much to help him catch up and get used to college level coursework because he didn't have that preparation in high school.</p>
