10 Summer Activities That Will Turn Admissions’ Heads. What should you do during the summer | Ivy Plus. One of the most popular subjects that we at Ivy Plus get questions on from Scandinavian students is Extracurricular Activities (EC). There is usually a little frustration when dealing with this evaluative criteria in US college admissions. As many readers know, Scandinavians are not used to community or civic involvement quite the way Americans* are, and the way American colleges in particular expect.

There are no requirements of students at the VG/Gymnasium level to do any EC, and it’s not part of the culture, although some are trying to change that. So, what does a Scandinavian applicant do about it? How does an applicant make themselves look like a worthy candidate to their target schools when they have done no volunteer work, have not participated in any clubs because there weren’t any at their school, or have not received any awards for academic or extracurricular work because it’s not in their culture to give them? Get a job or internship in the field you are interested in.

How To Apply Costs. Biomedical Research Academy | Penn Summer. Taught by members of Penn's Department of Biology and regional biology teachers, the goal of this program is to introduce students to the experimental basis of biology, including relevance to disease. The focus of the program will be on how we know what we know. Daily morning lectures and discussions on the cellular, molecular and genetic aspects of biology will be followed on some days by guest lectures from scientists and clinicians from Penn’s Department of Biology and from the Penn Medical School.

Afternoons will be spent in the laboratory with hands-on experiments that introduce you to the tools and techniques used in biomedical research labs. You will also participate in a small group “journal club” where you will learn to read primary scientific literature on a current topic of interest. Prerequisites: One year of high school Biology is required for application. Program Director: Linda Robinson, Ph.D. Dr. How to Apply.
