I am planning to major in Pre-Med and now i am debating whether or not to attend some summer programs like NYLF on Med or take one med-related course at the Columbia university. I am totally interested in the programs, so i am not doing it just "to look good." But i also am not sure if doing these programs are a plus on an application. DOes anyone have some ideas?

I think it's an excellent idea if it's your passion. Don't do it, though, if it's just to enhance your application.

Did some background research for my son who received an "invitation" to the NYLF and determined it was pretty much if you have the money you can go thing. So in our family's book it was no honor. Instead he applied to programs which were based on his past accomplishments and his ability to contribute AND where we don't pay.
He will be doing research for National Cancer Institute for the summer instead.
There was a previous post about this NYLF regarding medicine, technology and law, and many others came to this same conclusion...like the Who's Who for High school students, a scheme to generate money.
