After reading these forums and listening to WP admissions reps, I am learning that Boys State attendance is looked at highly. However, after looking at different Boys State websites, it seems as though participants can be elected to different leadership positions while at Boys State. Obviously, not everyone can be elected to a Boys State leadership position, so is just attending Boys State good enough in the eyes of the Admission Board? I'm still not sure why Boys State is touted with such high regard. To be selected, you already have displayed significant academic and leadership accomplishments. Thank you.
