Informative. Educational. Lots of fun. Inspiring. Best two weeks. Fun, fun, fun. Educational. International. It was amazing. Fun, new, and educational. Totally worth it.
I really enjoyed my classes; I thought they were both interesting and engaging.
My classes were a lot of fun; I especially liked my abnormal psychology class. It was really cool.
I loved them. I took journalism and business, and I didn’t have much of an interest in business, but after taking it, I realized that I did.
I loved my classes. In my journalism class, my whole perception of news writing was changed.
They have such amazing class options, so you get to take whatever class you can’t in school, which is really cool.
Both my teachers seemed like they knew everything you could ask them about the topic.
They were passionate about what they taught, and they were always open for questions. If you had any question, whether it was a so-called stupid question.
They were just really, really nice people in general.
I feel the program does prepare you for what college is like because you have to be able to balance social life with academics.
Living in the dorms was a really cool experience, and having a lot of independent time to learn how to balance your time throughout when to do stuff is, I think, really valuable.
I hang out with my friends, I literally went to Newbury Street about 15 times because I loved it so much.
I also went to the Museum of Fine Arts. That was really cool.
I would go out with friends. I loved Coolidge Corner. It was the best place.
I really bonded with the people on my floor, and at night we would always hang out until the wee hours and it was always a lot of fun.
I really liked the dorms and getting to know everyone on my floor ’cause now we’re all best friends.
Spending time with my floormates, I loved them so much.
All the international students, I don’t get that experience back where I’m from.
Shocked to find how many countries were represented here.
Just meeting kids from all over the world, and being able to take classes that I was interested in with them, and hearing their perspectives on things.
It wasn’t too strict, it wasn’t too lenient. It was the perfect amount of “rules”.
Helps you know if you want to attend a city school, if you want to take advantage of the city.
Prepares you extremely well for college and really allows you the ability to feel what it’s going to be like in a couple of years.
Absolutely, 100%, one of the best programs I’ve ever done.
