Are summer programs helpful?

Hi there, I’m Victoria and I’m a 10th grade student from Malaysia. I wanted to know about whether participating in summer programs led by prestigious universities would help me in my future college/university applications? Or do they not play a big part? Thank you!

Hey Victoria! Summer programs led by universities can be very helpful for college applications. In terms of application profiles, they can showcase your curiosity and commitment to learning while allowing you to develop new skills and make valuable connections.

But it’s worth noting, summer programs are just one aspect of your application. Balance them with other factors, such as academic performance and extracurricular activities. They can enhance your application, but remember to focus on your overall profile.
