How will the United Space School affect my application to college?

Hi Zhalyn - we have heard about this program before but is it really run by NASA? Can you please send us some more information on this school. There are a number of summer space programs out there for high school students but only a few carry significant weight especially for top colleges. There short answer it is probably not going to make a difference for MIT or Stanford.
