    The university I attend picks around 6 individuals each year of whom they consider worthy to visit another country. The program supposedly "prepares students in challenging and diverse way to become more productive global citizens" and was pretty big at the school considering they only pick 6 people out of the 12,000+ at my university. It was actually nothing more than a glorified vacation. I didn't go to class or anything it was basically a free trip to Chile. Should I put this on my app?

    Probably...but I really wouldn't phrase it quite like that :laugh:

    (i.e. avoid "My school thinks I work so hard I deserved an all-expenses paid vacation to Chile..." Impressive though it may sound, ADCOMs will probably wonder what kind of school you went to ;))
