People to People is not what they claim it to be. There is little taught to the teens on the trips and anyone who thinks that these trips will add a boost to their college application, will soon find out just the opposite. The $6000 to $7000 would have been better used to help defry the cost of the college they'll be going to with or without the trip. College admissions offficers know what these trips are all about --an expensive vacation for well-off teenagers whose parents want them out of the house. Of course there is the occasional financially disadvantaged student who has been able to raise money from unknowing friends, neighbors and family members, who get to go on one of these vacations.
