I want to go, but I will feel lousy if I paid $395 for the summit (that's $395 per day that is, not sure if one needs both days?), $250 for airfare, $200 hotel, rental car, food, and 2 unpaid days from work if it didn't help me get one step closer. I need to make the connections and this is specific to TV, perfect for me! I certainly don't have unreasonable expectations, just don't want it to be a waste. I need to feel like $1,000+ was worth it because it is a lot of money and I would be going by myself as none of my friends can combine a vacation then, I already looked into that. I remember back in 8th grade I was going to be a big time actress and my friend a fashion model lol, we spent a few hundred dollars for this so called contest (that was many hours of working at Arby's for us). I assume these people really are looking for fresh talent because what we went to back then at a local hotel was a joke. Yes of course your friend can be a top model despite the fact that she's 4'8, in braces and 10 pounds overweight!
My friend has gone to writers conferences for his book but paid about half the cost of this summit. What do you guys think?
