I am going to attend the Junior Statesman Summer Program at Princeton this Summer and I was wondering what other summer programs look the best on college applications?

The ones that students creatively create for themselves and pursue intensely to follow passions that they would pursue whether or not adcoms care.

I agree w/ Northstarmom, its the programs you pursue out of love and passion for a particular area. (I don't think she means you have to create something from scratch. Organized programs are fine. Just try to pick one you really will enjoy doing and don't worry about how it will look on apps.)

I do mean that the best programs are ones that students create for themselves because of a deep interest in a pursuit.
In addition to teaching students about the subject of their interest, the work that students do to create an opportunity for themselves teaches them leadership, hones their creativity, and serves as an excellent example to colleges of the students determination, independence and perserverance.
Whatever the program is -- from a community service project that a student saw after noticing a need to an unpaid internship that a student got a company to create for the student-- the opportunity will be unique, which is a big plus.
If students choose to pursue their passions through established groups, then the best way of doing that is to also work to help shape the organization so that it evolves in some good ways. This could be by the student's helping to implement new initiatives or by the student's strengthening a weak aspect of the organization.

Christopher Wallace- I guess that adds a touch of class to his more...notorious name! But where did the last word in that phrase go? lol

I could have not said any better. You are wise woman and I am sure your kids will have picked up these characters from you.

If you're from NC, Governor's School is certainly the best value-based summer program you'll come across...
