Why do a College Essay Boot Camp?
- The best way to make yourself stand out from the competition is by writing exceptional college essays
- Assuming you have chosen the schools you’re applying to well, you are going to be in the same ballpark as other applicants – your GPAs, SAT scores and activities will all look the same to the admissions counselors reading your applications
- The only way to make yourself stand out in the applicant crowd and wake the admissions reader up, make them pay more attention to you than the other applicants, make them want to know you better and have you on their Campus is by writing great essays that you yourself craft
- Writing college essays can be a stressful experience especially if you are trying to write what you think the admissions people want to hear. That is exactly the kind of essay that turns an application reader off. They become bored hearing the same thing over and over again.
- When you write a college essay what you really are doing is writing your own story, writing the stories of your life
- The best way to take the stress out of the process is to fully be yourself and work with experienced professionals who can help you take the stories of your life and craft them into stellar essays
