just wondering, anyone knows about this conference?
i got a letter said that im nominated for this conference which would be held in US or Europe in this summer.
from the letters and materials they sent me, it looks like it really worths going. but it costs abt 2000 dollars.
so want to know opinions from ppl who knows abt this or hv been to one before.
heyy! i went there last year.
pm me if you need more information.
but i must say
i had a time of my life.
it's interesting for those who wants to see us and it's stand on politics. hahaa.
yea. pm me. (=
I went on it and got funding - so it didn't cost me anything, and though some of the activities were a bit quaestionable just meeting so many people from so many different backgrounds in two such wonderful cities was an experience I'll never forget.
I'm going this summer, to the conference starting on July the 12th. I'm a little weary of the biased views that will be presented, but I'm sure it will be a great learning experience anyways. If anyone else is going around the same time then let me know!
I just got a letter, still not quite sure whether it's a money scam or not... Also does anyone know how Admissions Tutors feel about it? Thanks...
i got that too but its pretty obvious they use the academics approach to draw you in. Its not selective or anything and the people going won't be valedictorians and stuff but i heard its great fun. If you are looking to meet new people and visit the US or Europe, its definitely worth it for the fun (as my friends tell me).
Our schools usually nominate people which is in essence you putting down your name. It won't add an academic edge to your CV but definitely give you international experience which is good for personal statements and interviews i guess.
Oh ok. I don't know who nominated me. I hadn't heard about it until I got the letter so it seems unlikely it was a teacher who nominated me. Plus I'm not the type to get nominated by a teacher for anything...
So Chriz/Ceelu you planning on going?
Hmm i got one too..can't decide it does seem like it costs a lot and is there any point if youve been living in an international environment all along and have already been to the us loads of times? i thought it would be challenging and would give you new skills and approaches but I can infer from this post that it won't really...still thinking about it what can others who have been say about it? would it rather be worth going on a holiday abroad with a big group of friends ( the the gylc is more about socialising then i suppose it would be quite similar) or go on the programme hoping not to be disappointed?
is it u all are gylc alumni?
if u are..
pls nominate me..
if u willing to nominate me..
pls msg me..
Hey, I got invited too, but by mail and it says that I'll receive a mail shortly explaining more about that program but from what i read 2,000 dollars is a lot, at least here in Paraguay, I just wondering if it's worth it?
Hey vei92, I received the invitation thingy by mail too, and even I wondered if it was a money scam. Yeah 2000 dollars is way too much.. I really don't think it's worth it, from this forum and the CC posts, it sounds more like a socialising thing than a real leadership experience that all participants are genuinely interested in..
it's too costly for me.
i cant afford to go
I was nominated too... but I haven't taken the SAT's yet or anything.
It cost a lot of money so Ill try and apply for a scholarship (if its free it cant hurt right?)
anyway, if to choose, which country programme would you guys suggest?
How exactly do you get nominated for this? I'd never heard of it before this thread but it sounds interesting..
