I went to NYLC and the ppl were not very impressive (academically speaking, that is). I would say that the summer program @ Columbia would be more impressive. My NYLC program lasted for 6 days. If I compared the two, I would say that the summer program carries more weight.

Matt, I was actually in the same dilemma. I decided that going to a summer program at a college would be more beneficial because it shows that you can actually handle college-level work. However, N.S.L.C. is by no means a poor program, it is nothing extraordinary. My advice would be to go to Columbia's program. Which Columbia program were you looking into anyway?

If you want college-level work, stick with the APs. You don't need to go to a fancy institution that costs several thousands of dollars just to have college-level work.
Colleges like to see passion for a particular interest you have, so if you can shape your summer around this passion, that's even better.
I'm going to Law and Advocacy at NSLC this year

I'd say go for Columbia summer program, for two reasons:
1. My best friend did it last summer and had an amazing time - loved her courses, the people, everything.
2. I think it looks more impressive, if that's what you're going for.
Satman04 - it's true that summer programs at colleges cost several thousands of dollars, but for a week, NSLC is also pretty damn expensive.

I agree, it's however you prioritize

As for pasion I am passionate about business law.. im going to apply to sterns and columbia next year. I was just wondering which would look better on the application.. thx for the help
