    Why do you want to attend summer school at these unis anyway??? Is it to aid with your application???If that is the case then i suggest you save your time and money for something else as it is just not worth it. A fiend of mine attended stanford summer school. Did well in school and co-cirriculars but was rejected from stanford like hell. There are more productive ways to spend the summer.

    That said if you still want to do it, then i have heard great things about stanford SS( from the same friend ofcourse). Loads to learn, lots to do and great people to meet!!!

    Thanks for your answer
    I applied to these programs because i think it may be a good first university experience and that these college prep programs were really adapted.
    I know there are much more prestigious program (SSP, RSI, MITES) but I believe they are too difficult to get in for me.

    Harvard. My friend spent 10th grade winter break there. Basically just took introductory economics courses and when my friend came back to school, she basically knew all there was to know about International baccalaureate micro and macroeconomics.
    And IMO harvard is a better school Although Stanford's west coast geography might be better for observatories? (not sure)
