Georgetown Summer Academy

Hello! I've been considering the Georgetown Summer Academy program and was wondering if anyone here has attended it? If so, what were your experiences, and do you think attending this program positively impacted your college admissions prospects? Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Hey there! I haven't personally attended the Georgetown Summer Academy program, but I have heard from friends who've done it that they had a really good time. They got to experience college life at Georgetown and interact with professors on interesting topics.

As for whether attending such a program would impact your college admissions prospects, it's not something that will give you a significant edge. Admissions officers usually view summer programs as a way for students to continue learning and explore their interests during the break. So, while it might not directly increase your chances of acceptance, it can show that you're dedicated to your chosen field and actively seeking opportunities for growth.

If you're genuinely interested in the program, I'd say go for it! Just keep in mind that it should be about personal enrichment and enjoyment, rather than solely a strategy to boost admission chances. Good luck!
