Question: I am a high school sophomore. I feel that I should do a summer school program to learn and have a college experience for a few weeks, but many of my friends are saying that it would just be a waste of money. My family doesn't have that much money and would only like to use a set limit for my extracurriculars. What would be best for me?
Are you interested in an on-campus experience because you think it will help you mature and be comfortable away from home as well as to learn something about a field that interests you? Or do you want to do it because you feel it will "look good" on your college applications later on?
