College Admissions Boot Camp

College Admissions Essay Boot Camp

Writing Admissions Essays Doesn’t Have To Be Painful!

WHO: Rising High School Seniors

WHY: Universities expect applicants to write insightful and entertaining essays that reveal the person behind the grades. Yet, most students are unprepared to summarize their unique qualities in a one-page essay. They  procrastinate, misinterpret instructions, and fail to get their voices across.

WHAT: In this hands-on College Admissions Essay Boot Camp, led by an accomplished college writing instructor, students will generate ideas and create essays that reflect their personalities and set their application apart from the elite pack.

During this session students will:

  • Choose an appropriate essay topic for up to three admissions essays;
  • receive suggestions/tips for each topic;
  • avoid topic and selection pitfalls;
  • write and develop one essay;
  • have the option to purchase continued essay assistance at a discount.
