    I have just applied for Imperial Global Summer School, and I am a bit worried of not being able to get in.. My first choice for strand is physical science, and the second is engineering. I filled in my GCSE results, which are all A* except for English Language. My A-Level predicted grades haven’t come out yet. However, I made a big mistake when writing the personal statement: I thought the maximum number of words is 500, so I wrote about like 400words. I just realised they wouldn’t look at any words beyond 200. I’m quite worried about it cuz I don’t think I explained a lot about my abilities that might suit this programme.Can anyone give me any advice or any idea about how difficult it is to get an offer for this summer school please? Thank you!!!

    I'm not going to post anything constructive but these are my thoughts on the program. I was just looking for something like this, something so perfect that would be great to put on my personal statement. In fact I zoomed to the Global Summer School page and was registering, until I read:

    "£4,490 per student"

    haha hell no lol
    Like what? Over £4000 for one person on a two week residential trip? wtfffffff

    Hahaha I was a bit shocked when I first saw it as wellXD But then I was just thinking it should look good on the personal statement or maybe to have something to talk about in an interview. Just worrying about if I can get an offer
