ive been getting invitations to summer leadership seminars such as NSLC and other things that are programs based on leadership and such and they all look VERY useful in 1. acquiring good leadership skills 2. something great to put on the academy application. BUT heres the catch, these all costs over $2000 and to be honest we just cant come up with that kinda of money. I could use some of my college funds for it....but then that would be a bit of a gamble because then if I decide not to go to a SA or cant get in then it would be a waste. So has anyone gone to things like this? how useful are they? do they really help your leaderships skills that much? and how would this look really good for the SA's?
