For high school juniors and those getting ready to apply to college.
This boot camp, scheduled after the questions for the Common Application are announced, will help you focus your thoughts to develop a strong and impressive personal statement, application essay and application question answers to impress those admissions officers.
Over the course of three group sessions and two individual sessions, we’ll brainstorm topics and ideas, write first drafts and receive feedback to write a second or third draft. You’ll get all the help you need to meet the challenge of writing those essays, leaving you and your family to concentrate on other college decisions.
A fun, invigorating experience!
Session One: brainstorming, organizing ideas, choosing essay questions, and producing a rough first draft
Session Two: first draft feedback for revisions, and writing a second essay first draft
Session Three: more feedback on all drafts written, with plenty of time for students to continue to revise their work
Individual Sessions: two 45-minute individual sessions allow students to really hone their essays, correct mechanics like grammar and punctuation, and use the focused feedback to dig even deeper into their essay subjects
