Admissions Advice

Does going to a summer program for pre-college really helps your resume?

My plan was to go to UT Austin but I wanted to get a hand on experience and because of the COVID-19 I decided to cancel it. But next year is my junior year and I really want to know if it would really help or I should go for a Intership or college credit courses for my dream school which is John Hopkins?

So if you pay for them it has a reduced impact but if you get into a competitive program and get practical experience in your field it can drastically boost your application and college courses show rigor and college gets cheaper at the same time so either are good so Id recommend looking at whats the most applicable to you and your goals.
