    When discussing summer schools on a personal statement, should you disclose where you undertook the summer school?

    Will it put some universities off whilst putting that university in favour?


    Would you state where or leave it out?

    Cheers

    Universities won't give a **** where you went to summer school. There's really no point in mentioning the specific university (but if you do then the reaction is likely to be "meh" )

    I did and I still got offers from the other unis, so I'm guessing it won't have much of an effect.
