Choosing a major for college can seem like a daunting decision. The truth is that what you study as an undergrad probably WILL affect the direction of your future career. But it’s not as much as some students think.
Are you applying for art or writing programs at college? Or are you looking to add a wrinkle of creativity to your overall admissions strategy? The following summer programs can certainly have admissions value, especially if you follow through on the experiences with recs or submissions to competitions or literary magazines.
So you’re really good at math and you want to challenge yourself this summer. There are a number of options as to how you might spend your time, but some are more worthwhile than others. Some programs are more competitive than Ivy League admissions, while others might just be a way for universities to make money during the summer.
