Hello! I’ve been accepted by Wharton’s “Essentials of Entrepreneurship” 2021 summer program. Due to the pandemic, it was cancelled, and I have the option to roll over to the next summer (2022). I’m in 9th grade, very interested in entrepreneurship, has started a few small businesses. I hope to get your opinions on my questions:
- Is it worth to attend? The 2-week program costs around $6500. On the other hand, I would have the opportunity to interact with Wharton faculty and scholars, which I think would be cool.
- Would this expensive summer program have negative impact on my college application? I had thought this was a selective program before I applied, but after surfing around it seems it is a pay-to-play program. And I heard expensive, non-selective summer camps may hurt college admissions.
