What A Difference a Summer Can Make!
Summer is your opportunity to really show college admissions officers what an interesting candidate you are!
You can hone your academic strengths, work on and improve weak areas, pursue a passion, try out a future major, try out a job or volunteer for something you care about.
The most important thing for the college bound student is to do something meaningful with your time. What you do over the summer can be used to great advantage in your college application.
What about Summer Programs?
There are hundreds of summer programs available in the US and to a lesser degree in the UK and Canada. You can study anything from anthropology to computer science to environmental science, English as a second language, sports management or even zoology. You can learn to play golf, sail a boat or surf.
Attending a summer program, especially an academically rigorous one or one in which you pursue a passion, can aid your chances of getting into your desired college.
They can help differentiate you from the tens of thousands of other applicants. Remember! As many as 90,000 other students may be applying for admission in the same college that you wish to attend.
What will you do to make yourself stand out from the crowd? What experience or passion will you be able to write about in a compelling way?
Use this summer … your summer… to find out!
You should also be aware that summer programs are not the only answer. A meaningful internship, a summer job, time spent volunteering on a project that you care about or even an eye opening trip can also have great positive impact on you and your college application.
