Virtual College Application Boot Camp!
August 17 – 20
Seniors – Don’t go back to school without completing your college application!
While COVID-19 has upended plans for the coming school year, the college application process will go on. In the absence of required test scores, colleges will evaluate applicants differently, pay closer attention to activities, scrutinize essays, and track demonstrated interest.
But don’t panic — we are here to help! We put together a boot camp for college application success!
Through a combination of highly structured individual and group instruction, students will organize themselves for the college application process, understand how to highlight themselves in all areas of the Common Application, write an impressive personal essay, learn how to create an impactful student portfolio to supplement their application, and prepare for an online or in-person interview. Students will participate in 4 evenings of online classwork and devote a couple of hours of individual application work during the day.
Join 3 experts on August 17 – 20 from 6pm to 9pm EDT for this “can’t miss” College Application Boot Camp!
