I am a high school junior and I was recently accepted into the Pre-college Harvard Summer Program. I was wondering if anyone has attended this program before and if the admission process is selective.
I was also wondering if this program will aid me in getting accepted into an Ivy.
I would appreciate any of your comments, Thanks.
P.S. I would also like to know about a typical day in the program

yep, I did Harvard Summer School last summer.

-NOT selective. You'll get in if you have an IQ over 60.
-Help you get into an Ivy? Yes, I'd say so. Well I averaged an A last summer and a few days ago I got into MIT, which isn't an Ivy but might as well be one. Harvard's got quite the reputation, so showing that you can excel in a college-level course at Harvard looks good to any school you're applying to.

Do you mind telling me your stats?
Also, Out of Duke, Brown, and Harvard summer programs,which one is the most selective and reputable.
